Where is alternater located on my 2000 fat boy?

The alternator (rotor and stator) are located inside the primary cover on the left side of the bike. They are behind the compensator sprocket. If the problem is the stator, make sure to replace the four stator bolts. Don't reuse the old ones or they may come loose and cause you more problems.

1987 intruder 700 battery not holding charge

THe alternator is not charging. I would check the wires on the left side gong into the stator under the side cover and see if any of them are corroded, broken, etc, there is a fuse type thing in the line, Then if all checks out, get it started again and put your volt meter on the wires and see if you can find some high voltage in the AC mode. I have see a stator drain the battery .

Where is stator located, left or right side.

Your stator is on the left side of the engine when you are sitting on the bike. It is mounted in the left engine cover.

I need to know where the stater is, and how to change it myself on my 1983 gr650 tempter

Your stator is bolted into the left engine cover , You will need a stator and a gasket. Simply drain your oil into a clean container so it can be put back in later, unplug the stator from the harness behind the side cover, unbolt the left side cover of the engine, gently tap on it and pull it off, the stator in in the cover and can now be unbolted and replaced. If your bike battery slowly loses it's charge over a weks time , you may have a weak magnet on the flywheel. Very hard to diagnose, all you can do is replace the fly wheel if the new stator does not fix a slow discharge problem.

Need to know how to install a regulator and estator in cavalcade ,1986 model? Also, need to know where they are located.

The Regulator/Rectifier is located ontop of the headlight. You can see it through the grill there. To change it requires the removal of the fairing, false tank, seat, instrument cluster cover. The Stator is located on the left side(sitting on the bike) of the motor. You can change it by lying the bike over on something soft, old mattress or the grass, on the motor - remove the left rear (secondary) cover and the stator cover. NOTE the lay of the wires and the wire guard. Remove the stator and follow the wires up to where they connect to the Reg/Rect behind the right indicator light. If you were only doing the Stator, then some people splice the wires in behind the left sidecover with heavy duty splices and solder combined.

Not charging battery

The stator is on the left side of the bike while you are sitting on it.

It is underneath the primary cover, the largest one on that side. It can be reached by removing the primary cover, primary chain, clutch basket and the sprocket on the end of the crankshaft. I myself would not tackle a job like this at home. Gaskets are another issue on reassembly. The stator is a coil like winding of copper wire around which rotates a heavy round metal flywheel type piece that has magnets afixed inside of it, as the flywheel rotates around the stator, it creates the electricity, just like a hydroelectric generator you have seen on TV only on a smaller scale.

Regulator..battery in good condition..not charging when running

Check the stator first. Remove the stator to regulator plug on the left side front of the engine. Test for ground short between the pins and engine case. There should be infinate resistance between pin and ground If there is any continuity, replace the stator. If the resistance test is good, check vor voltage. Start the bike and run up to 2000 RPM. There should be at least 60V AC at across the pins. If either of these tests fail, replace the stator. If these tests are good and it isn't charging, replace the regulator. Good luck.

2002 gsxr 600 bike shuts off

Did you put a full charge on the battery b4 you put it in? The charging system really dose not charge until like 4 or 5 thousand RPM's. So just starting it in the garage doesnt really charge the battery. Put a full charge on it and it should be fine.Also buy a trickle charger. It will keep this from happening again. Its a commonly over looked issue. If it dies again going around town the replace the stator. ( left side of motor )

Have you checked the output of the stator? When the bike is running above idle - say 3000 rpm's, you should see a voltage across the battery terminals of at least 14.1 volts.

If the stator is good, then I would next look at the amount of lights or accessories installed.

Also, if I remember correctly, the early 80's GL's were notorious for having a problem with the 3 yellow wires coming from the stator. The plastic connector would eventually corrode and either kill the stator or burn completely.
