Question about 2002 Hyosung GV 250 Aquila

1 Answer

A new battery on my 250 aquilla and it still goes flat after a day or so. I put a multimeter on the terminals while engine running and it;s hardly showing a charge the readout flucktuates thinking its the alternator or regulator where are these items located on the bike?

GV250: Removing the Battery:

Since I've done it a couple of times recently, I thought I would put together this quick HowTo.

Remove the seat. You don't necessarily have to but I find it makes it easier.

Using a #3 Phillips head screw driver, loosen the screw holding the chrome piece below the plastic panel in place.

Note: Do not remove the screw, just loosen.

Pull the plastic side panel towards you until the tab comes loose from the slot. There will be resistance because of the tab slot that holds it in place.

Note: do not pull to far towards you as you may damage the tongue below (see Appendix A for visual reference)

Using a 10MM socket wrench or a #3 Phillips head screwdriver (I recommend the 10MM socket wrench) remove the two bolts holding the bracket battery.

Gently pull the battery out and, using a 10MM socket wrench or a #3 Phillips head screwdriver (I recommend the 10MM socket wrench), remove the two terminal bolts.

Note: For the positive terminal, you will need to pull the rubber boot back. It should slide back along the cable.

Tuck the loose terminal cables back in the now empty battery slot and replace the plastic side panel and seat.

Thats it, your done.

Appendix A:
There is a tongue on the plastic side panel that slides into a slot in the chrome below it. Do not put the tongue behind the slot, it must go inside the slot

Big Boy 250 TSR how to test the charging system

Hi, Henry before testing any electrical component in the Charging System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. 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.
2. To check the regulator unplug it from the stator. Take a test light and clip it to the negative terminal of the battery and then touch first one pin and then the other on the plug that goes to the regulator. If you get even the slightest amount of light from the test light the regulator is toast.
To do this with a meter: black lead to battery ground, red lead to each pin on the plug, start with the voltage scale higher than 12vdc and move voltage scale down in steps for each pin. Any voltage is a bad regulator.
3. On the other part of the disconnected regulator plug. Set the multimeter for Ohms x1 scale and measure for resistance across the pins of the stator. You should read something around 0.1 to 0.2 ohms for a 32 amp system.
4. Then check for continuity between each pin on the plug and frame/engine ground. The meter needle should not move (infinite resistance)(digitals will show infinite resistance) if the meter needle does move (indicating continuity)(digitals will show some resistance), recheck very carefully. If the meter still shows continuity to ground the stator is shorted (bad).
5. Set the meter to read A/C volts higher than 30 volts (the scale setting for voltage should always be higher than the highest voltage you expect or you may fry the meter). Start the bike, and measure from one pin to the other on the plug (DO NOT cross the multimeter probes! - touch them to each other). You should read roughly 16-20 vac per 1,000 rpm.
6. If the battery was good under load test, if the stator is NOT shorted to ground, and the stator is putting out A/C voltage, then the regulator is bad (most likely even if passed step 2)

My 2010 Ducato 3ltr m/home with 24K The engine battery keeps going flat, I think something is draining it, Once running the engine is ok and will restart but next day flat Can anyone offer any advise

Hi, A fully charged battery is 12.6. The link below is a short youtube video on how to find out if a car battery has a power drain, The video starts with the guy loosening the negative lead to the battery then turns the multimeter on and sets it to 20 DC, plug bottom of lead to current mode and places 1 multimeter lead on top of the terminal inside the negative lead and the other multimeter lead on the negative lead and wiggle the negative lead off the battery, The current being drawn from your battery should be less than (5.0) 50 mille volts..... The reason he takes the negative lead off after connecting the multimeter this is to save any codes from the car as technically the battery isn't disconnected.....

How to check my voltage regulator in 1989 Honda Civic

put a multimeter across the battery terminals and start the car
at idle it should read 12 volts and when at 2000 rpms it should read 14.5 to 14.8 volts at higher rpms it should still read those volts
if it goes higher then it is suspect
make sure the multimeter is set on dc volts setting

Bike not charging battery

There are 3 reasons for your problem, it is either the battery, the rectifier or the alternator. to check if it is the rectifier, (which is the most probable cause) all you need is a multimeter, put the probes on the battery terminals while engine is running the reading should give you 12v, then rev the engine a bit and the voltage should increase to between 14, and 15v. I however the voltage stays the same, goes lower, or gets higher than 15v, that is the rectifier. I f that is working normally take out the battery and take a reading from the multimeter it should give +- 12v if it doesn't try to charge it for 24hrs, if it doesn't get recharged, then get a new one.

Flickering battery light

The alternator is old and tired, having a hard time keeping up with the task of running all the elecrtricals AND charging the battery. If you put a voltmeter on it with the engine running, it would show the alternator's output at the low end of acceptable performance. Have it tested to be sure.

Electric blade clutch won't work and battery went dead

If you have a new battery and it went dead that quickly I would check the charging system on the mower engine. Many of them use a voltage regulator and if it goes bad it will not properly charge the battery. Get the engine running (do not engage the PTO) and use a multimeter set on DC voltage. Place the multimeter leads on the battery and you should see approximately 13-14 volts DC at the battery terminals when it is running. If less then that then it's a problem with the charging system and further tests would be needed to figure out if it is a bad regulator or charging coil.

New battery fitted started 4 days in a row left for two days then started then today battery is flat again started with leads went one mile up the road stopped bike and it would not start again battry...

It may need a regulator.
put a multi meter across the battery terminals
It should read 12v or a little more with the engine stopped.
When the engine is revved it should rise to around 14v, if it doesnt rise, it isnt charging

1985 ford LTD - replaced alternator & battery, checked wiring OK. Car will start but cuts a few minutes later, also not holding a charge.

Are you sure that is a charging problem?Check if the carb injects gas at the moment the engine runs off,if there is spark on the ignition cables,as for no holding the charge,make this tip,disconnect the positive cable of the battery and get a multimeter,connect one terminal to the battery post and the other terminal cable,and disconnect every fuse and relay and possible part that consume a charge,one part at the time,when the reading on the multimeter goes down you did find the problem that its consuming the charge.
