The charge system is regulated by voltage. amps is not such an issue unless extra lights etc are fitted

Battery voltage
12v - 12.6v with the engine stopped. This should rise to around 13.5v with a couple of thousand revs. If it doesnt rise there is a problem. ( an innocent jump start from the car battery can spike the regulators on some bikes)

Why does battery drain kill battery if I don't start it every day?


Hi, M first perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for a drop in amperage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
5. Hook up a voltmeter to the battery and start the engine, if meter falls below 9.0 volts while cranking you need to perform a proper load test on the battery and replace if necessary.
6. With the engine running at 3600 RPM, the battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
7. Unplug the voltage regulator from the alternator at crankcase by the front of the primary cover.
8. To test voltage regulator go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
9. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace the stator.
10. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace the stator.
11. With the voltmeter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace the rotor.

Why is my battery discharging after two days after motor mounts replaced?


If the alternator charging more than14.v and the battery tester reading is GOOD.
Check any leaks from the battery. Disconnect the ground wire from the battery--put the multimeter in the amperage measurement (10A)--connect one probe from multimeter to the ground terminal on the battery--connect the second probe from multimeter to the ground cable.All doors closed Any light , ignition,radio .......OFF. If the amperage reading (leaks) more than 30-50 mA you have to find where by reading amperage and disconnecting the fises one by one to clarify
witch cirqiut have the problem. Better to check this at least 30 minutes after the ignition has been tuned OFF and the doors were closed .

XV1100 Starter does not engage when trinig to start engin


sorry didn't actually see the post before my first comment, if it is only when the bike is warm or hot but not over heated I would suspect the same thing, faulty starter. "replace or rebuild"

Hello, MY 2005 Nisan frontier will not start. About 3 days ago, the battery light would stay on after the engine started...had the battery checked and it was fine...then serviced it yesterday but it still...


Battery might seem fine on a routine check, but the crancking amp power is not there anymore, seems that your alternator is not charging it anymore, have the alternator checked and replaced if needed, the battery might need replacing too.

My 1997 650 savage wont keep a charge


Hmm, do you have a voltmeter, check the voltage on the battery with it running, usually 13.5 to 15 volts
If that reads ok, you probably have a short, get a testlight, pull off the negative cable off the battery,clamp one end to the cable and the other to the battery. If it lights up, you have a short, start unplugging stuff until you find the short and the light goes out!
