Hi
Depends what the engine is mounted on it will be a 4"x4" box with cooling fins. Go to kawpowr.com for parts.

I have a 2000 zx12r bike was not charging put a regulator on it now it is overcharging around 15v at idle regulator getting really hot someone has run new wires from regulator to battery any ideas


Hi, Daniel make sure the regulator has a good, clean, tight ground, the systems check below is geared towards Harley Davidson so exact numbers might differ slightly with book specs on your bike but the basic principal is the same, in order to check out any main electrical system, you have to start with a fully charged battery 12.5 volts or better, and be able to pass a load test if necessary. "WARNING" never plug or unplug any electrical connector with the engine running !!!
1. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check 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. Check the voltage drop at the battery when you hit the starter button, anything below 9 volts you might have a faulty battery.
3. Check voltage at the battery with the bike running at 3,600 RPM should be 14.3 to 14.7 volts. If you are not getting these numbers, you might have a faulty voltage regulator.
4. Make sure voltage regulator is "GROUNDED" and functioning properly, watch the video below on how to test a voltage regulator.
5. Unplug the connector to the alternator and hook your multimeter leads to the alternator (pin/socket selection does not matter) set the multimeter to AC volts, at an idle the multimeter should read 16 to 20 volts AC. at 2,000 RPM 32 to 40 AC volts, 3,000 RPM 48 to 60 AC volts. If you are not getting these numbers, you may have a faulty alternator rotor.
6. Set the multimeter to OHM'S, connect one lead to the alternator (any pin/socket) and the other to a ground, the multimeter should read infinity. Connect both leads to the alternator multimeter should read 0.1 to 0.2 OHM'S. If you are not getting these numbers, you have a bad stator.
7. Check all wiring in the charging circuit for worn or chaffed spots and all wiring connectors in the circuit for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets, which is the # 1 offender.

I have a kawasaki zx9r 1998 and i have two problems overcharge battery and melt coil


Thats very high. The voltage should be around 13 or 14.5 volts. Sounds like the voltage regulator you put on was bad too.

Kawasaki fb460v overcharging battery???


It sounds like the voltage regulator is bad. It may be located on the blower housing which covers the flywheel. Should have a large plastic plug connecting to it. If you don't see anything like this then give me the engine spec number so I can look it up. It would be something like "AS09" and should be located where the engine model and serial numbers are.

Put a new alernater an still over charging


Over charging could be the result of several things including:
    Faulty Voltage Regulator
  1. A car's battery will overcharge if the voltage regulator isn't working correctly. A voltage regulator is usually part of the alternator, and is used to keep a steady flow of voltage to the battery. If the voltage regulator is defective, it will send either too little or too much charge to the battery. If it sends too much, the car battery will overcharge. The voltage regulator is easily replaceable at an easily affordable price, sometimes for as little as twenty dollars, as of 2009.
  2. Faulty Alternator
  3. Sometimes the alternator itself can be at fault. The alternator is the device that converts the mechanical power of the engine into electrical power to charge the battery. When an alternator breaks, it usually stops creating electricity for the battery, which will then eventually die. However, if the wrong alternator is placed in the car, or if the alternator is running at the wrong pace, it will create too much energy for the car battery, causing it to overcharge. The alternator is another easily replaced part.
  4. Incorrect Charger Use
  5. If a battery charger is used to charge your battery outside of your car, improper use of the charger can result in overcharging. If a battery is placed on the charger too long, it can result in overcharging, and a significant decrease in your battery's lifespan and efficiency. This is why it is important to read about your specific battery and understand how long it needs to charge to be effective. Too much charge will lead to problems.
  6. Faulty Battery Chargers
  7. Sometimes chargers can be faulty. Their settings may be wired incorrectly, or the charges labeled incorrectly. As a result, your battery may be getting overcharged, even if you are carefully monitoring your charging. This is a problem that is hard to avoid, as manufacturing mistakes can happen anywhere, anytime without warning. It is a good idea to test your charger regularly to see if it is running correctly.
  8. Heat
  9. Extreme heat in the summer can also have an adverse effect on the car battery. If the battery has been previously overcharged, extreme heat can increase the problems caused by overcharging, and exacerbate any other problems with the battery. This problem can be hard to avoid if you live in a warm climate. The only real way to ensure safety against this problem is to avoid overcharge in the first place.

I've got a '71 ford custom w/305.The battery overcharges to the point where it boils the water out.The alt. & voltage reg. have gone out twice since this started.The back of the ammeter looks like it...


while it is acting like a faulty voltage regulator, have you been able to monitor the voltage when overcharging? Are the grounds all in good condition? I seem to recall this many years ago. I'll shake the cobwebs loose if you contact me back and see what help I may be.

How old is your battery? Has it been overcharged?
The battery voltage at rest should read 12.8Volts when fully charged. If, when it is charging from the engine, the voltage exceeds 14.8Volts, suspect an overcharge as that will damage the battery and reduce its output power. I can't see there are any shorting problems as you would notice the hot wire smell.
I remember my old Honda 4 had a battery overcharging problem, many years ago, causing the side lamps to flatten the battery within half an hour. There was no regulator fitted to that old model, all it had was a large Zener Diode to stop the voltage going too high and mine was open circuit, boiling the battery!
Hope that helps.

My 1987 dodge dakota is not holding a charge, altonator tested and good battery only a year old but have to push start it to get it to run and my lights are really dim


You need to bypass voltage regulator to be certain alternator is charging properly. When you full field alternator it eliminates voltage regulator. If it indeed is good it will overcharge. If it overcharges as it should when you bypass/full field alternator then the regulator, or its connection or the place it attaches to is rusty & wont conduct a ground.
