New stator new rectifer new batt will not charge 2007 yamaha 1100 custom

Check for clean, corrosion-free wiring connections (especially at the battery) and don't forget grounds! They are as important as the hot side. You may find this to be of help:

Good luck!

Battery will not hold a charge

Try disconnecting the battery for a few days then check to see if it's still charged. If it is, then a problem with the ATV wiring is draining the battery. If it loses its charge while unhooked, the battery needs replaced.

My battery in 1981 suzuki gs 850 g keeps dying on me, I charge it up everytime I come back from a ride,the battery is only a few weeks old,could it be my voltage regulator,or a wire that has some of the...

Start the bike and put a voltmeter across the battery; you should get a reading of probably around 13.5V. If you're getting only about 12V or less, the battery isn't charging. From there you will need to go to the alternator terminal on the regulator and see if you're getting more than 12V. If you are, the regulator is probably bad, if not it could be a bad rectifier if there is a seperate rectifier or a bad stator. Good luck and safe riding.

How to test rectifier.

there are several ways to test a rectifer the quckest way to check if it is working properly is with a voltmeter first check ground resistance one lead to good known ground (battery neg.) the other to rectifer should be 1 ohm or less.Then hook meter to battery and start the bike and check and watch battery voltage should start to increase after a minute or so check at 2000 rpm again increase if it does not check stator if stator passes replace rectifier

I cahnged the stator and rectifer and battery but

Ck at the battery with a voltmeter in series onthe Positive cable.A drain is use of the power. chking coils, rectifiers or the stator will not disclose or causeor effect.
Chk your charging rate. it should be between 13.6 and 14.2v Make sure your emergency shutdoqn is not left in off postion when not in use.. Off, meaning kill engine.
Good Luck. Remove the battery and wash it thoroughly with baking soda being sure not to get any inside.

Charging problem

more than likely it is the regulator rectifer yes the some times charge to high but not always that is the best bet the origanal stator sounded like it was fine the regulatetors are trickey to test because there are so many power sources on your bike lights,display sensors so on the regulator will more than likley fix your problem

if you have determined the batt is good leads are tight electrolite (distilled water) level is ok the part to look at is the voltage regulator with the help of the stator and rotor(alternator) it charges the battery if you have no power coming out to charge the battery then the regulator is bad just replace it no authorized service needed just the part hope this helps please give us a rate have supplied 50 soulitions and only recived 8 votes
