If the battery is 2 years old or more it may be bad. Add water to each battery cell so that the plates are covered by the water. Charge the battery with a 1amp or 2 amp charger for about 5 hours. If it will not hold a charge then replace the battery.
At the site below you can download a free PDF service manual for your bike. The manual will tell you how to check the electrical components. It will tell you how to rebuild the engine as well, but save the rebuilding until next month. :)

I had the same problem with my 900 that I just bought, the regulator was fried, so the local kaw shop replaced it with a new one off internet, then it promptly fried the new one, upon further investigation the rotor/armature was reading 1 ohm resistance, supposed toread 4/7 i think anyway, had to have alternater rebuilt , cost 370.00 , works fine now.

the post should be the same as an original. The wires should be green and tan. Green wire goes to the post towards the front wheel and the tan to the post nearest the engine. Don't forget to "polarize" the generator before starting. procedure is in the service manual. Momentarily short between the battery positive post and the field terminal.

Rectifier should be seperate and normally are about the size of the palm of your hand and have fins like a radiator. From your stator check for A/C voltage coming from your stator. No power = bad stator. If you have power check for bad grounds for rectifier or replace rectifier. 1st thing though is to check your battery cables...

All fuses must test and be good, including the ones not in the fuse box. The stator has AC voltage out to the regulator, so you are looking for the phase wires from stator to rectifier, isolate them(disconnect them) and read AC volts from these wires(not to ground but to each other) there are 3 different combinations so write down what they are.you need three sets of numbers around 50 Volts AC with the rpms aroung 1500. if you dont get about the same on each of these you are probably looking at replacing the stator.the wires in the stator sometimes loose their protective coating and then develope too much resistance to output enough power to keep your battery full.(try disconnect all ubnessesary add ons) The wires from stator to rectifier often get hot and melt if not kept clean inside the connectors.(look fot wires that have been hot) Reconnect any that have damage.
