Question about 1977 Suzuki GS 750

Open Question

I have a GS1000 Suzuki and I'm trying to replace the standard seperate regulator and rectifier with a single honda OEM RECBB model. How do I wire it up? From the new unit I have red, green & black going to one block and three yellows going to another block. (The current wiring on the suzuki uses standard connections and loom)

SOURCE: i have a 1980 suzuki gs1000 g. clutch?

Drain the oil and install a new oil filter. Dirty, gritty oil can make a clutch act this way. After the oil change , ride the bike for an hour or so. Now drain the oil a second time. Doing this will flush most all of the grit from the engine.

SOURCE: Faulty regulator rectifier- can't start the bike

I have a '07 C90T.
I have just replaced my stator. I replaced the reg/rectifier earlier this year. I replaced the battery one year ago in October.

I firmly believe what started the problem. Two guys that I told I didn't need help, but they pressured me to let them help. They hooked a battery backwards to my bike. A lot of people believe that's what shortened the life of the rectifier and stator.

But keep this in mind. The connections for the regulator/rectifier are not waterproof. I had done a lot of rainy riding and I first found a burnt connector on the discharge side of the reg/rect. My mechanic told me I needed to replace the reg/rect so I did but I soldered the wires and made them waterproof. I didn't do this on the stator side of the reg/rect and a few months later, when the bike quit charging again, I found that connector burnt, so I cut it out and soldered and waterproofed it.

Two days after we got back from a 700 mile round trip to Red River, NM, my bike quit charging again. This time though, I have a voltage meter on the bike, so I was aware of the problem before the bike could strand me someplace. Get one of those btw.
When I checked the old stator after I replaced it, I found the stator good but the pulse signal generator bad. It's required that you replace both btw. You have to, they are joined at the grommet.

Ok well, the battery cost $60 last year and I replaced it myself.
The reg/rect cost $140 through my mechanic and I replaced it myself.
Got the stator online for $173 shipped and they advertise a better stator that puts out 20% more power.
Not counting little things like solder, tape, heatshrink and such, I'm out a little less than $375 on my charging system.
I hope it's a done deal.
Again, some think the problems began when the battery was hooked up wrong, but I lean to believe the sub-standard Suzuki connections may have a hand in this.
Hope this helps. . . Joe

Start the bike and put a voltmeter across the battery; you should get a reading of probably around 13.5V. If you're getting only about 12V or less, the battery isn't charging. From there you will need to go to the alternator terminal on the regulator and see if you're getting more than 12V. If you are, the regulator is probably bad, if not it could be a bad rectifier if there is a seperate rectifier or a bad stator. Good luck and safe riding.

Your XL125 ignition system is designed to run off of battery power. You can remove all the lights but need to leave the battery, regulator, rectifier, and appropriate wiring in place. It is not designed to run like an ATC 110 (no battery) or a 2 stroke where you can run a single wire to a kill switch and down to the coil to power the spark plug. Put the harness, the regulator,the rectifier,and the battery back in and you should be in business.

Where do i start charging system not working 1978 suz gs1000


Start by checking the stater output from there the voltage regulator output.
stater voltage is ac. and should be 3 yellow wires going to the voltage regulator.
This voltage will hurt you!
It is a good start

Try a multi meter across the battery, much more than 14v engine running, and you will probably need a regulator.
The stator will produce 40-50v AC between any pair of the three same colored wires(probably yellow or white)
Make sure the battery is good and not shorted, and jumping off a car battery can put strain on the bike electrics as it will accept more amps the the bike can produce.

2002 suzuki intruder vl1500 not charging battery


Check the voltage across the battery with the engine running - it should be greater than 13.5V. 
If less, then you have a failure in your charging system, either the stator and/or the Rectifier/Regulator. 
See this personally authored diagnostic guide on how to determine which part is defective. Also has a recommendation for excellent replacement as opposed to std OEM.
