The battery cables and the battery its self. Have the battery tested or just replace it. Make sure it's the right battery for the bike too as even a small difference will spell a failure.

A bad battery will cause this. Put the battery on a trickle charger and let it charge until you read 12.6 ? 12.8 volts. Now remove the charger and let it sit overnight. It should still read 12.6-12.8 the next day. If not it is bad. If it is good I would suspect the rectifier is bad. The rectifier converts AC to DC. If it is bad it will burn the regulator out.

I put a new voltage regulator on my 2004 Buell xb12r and the battery keeps going dead. This the second time I have replaced it in a year. The battery is only 6 mos. old. Someone told me that it might be...


Yes, it could be the stator (this lives under one of the engine covers). However, put a meter accross the battery and see if there is any sign of charging. You are looking for 13.5 volts dc plus. If this just shows normal battery voltage or less, check all wires on the regulator are clean and tight. If still no joy, locate your regulator. There will be 5 or 6 wires. You need to find the 3 that come from the stator. Often they are color coded yellow (all three, it is a three phase output). Disconnect these and use your meter to check accross a pair at a time (engine running). You should be getting at least 50 volts AC (note, meter must be set to AC). If you are getting a very low reading your stator is at fault.
As its not an old bike, I would double check all the wiring and make sure its all clean and connections tight.
Good luck

I have a 2005 buell xb12r firebolt. problem is it wont start, wont crank at all. fuell pump works but when i hit the start button nothing. it was working fine earlier in the day then later nothing. its not...


There should be a starter relay somewhere (under the seat, maybe). These can go bad. Low voltage electricity is a pain. Make sure that EVERY connection is tight and does not have any corrosion under them. Try tapping on the starter casing lightly with a screwdriver handle or small tack hammer while pressing the starter button. Might have a dead spot on the armature.
