    so i went out after letting it sit for 30 min and it started, i hear the battery wont charge at idle so should i throw a voltometer on it and if its 14.4 take it out, try not to stall it and rpm high?

Sounds if regulator is not working or poor connections within charging circuit

    14.4 is good even if battery removed, i read your post correct.

    looks if battery has a weak connection

    cold is good

    but heated open circuit

    look around ignition wire or kill switch for poor connection?

    is this correct the when stalls engine cranks over good but will not fire-up

    also can be water in fuel

I have a 1990 kx 250, just had the top and bottom end done. Rode it for four hours and it died! Replaced the cdi box with new one, replaced the coil and stator and I still have no spark'

chec battery-must always be at 12.6volts-any lower and bike wont function--inspect connections for corrosion--also make sure carb and fuel delivery are correct

2001 Suzuki GSXR 600 starting trouble.

The stator is probably it..I had the same problem...After you change it the bike will run so much better. That's why it ran good with the new battery...Then it started draining it..It takes a special tool to get it out..

I have a 1996 f3.. we replaced the voltage regulator last year and got a new battery at the same time. this year i take it out and things are good for the first 800 miles i rode. now i can charge the...

look for 3 wires coming from the stator to the regulator, the same color, these should be the 3 phases of the stator and any pair of these should put out maybee 50v AC, with the bike running.
Also each pair of these should have similar resistance(engine stopped)and none grounded to earth
Then put the volt meter across the battery, it should read somwhere around 14 v DC with the engine running.

No AC -stator problem
Yes AC, No DC- regulator problem
Voltages can vary between makes and models, but hopefully this is the simple explanation

Honda shadow starts fine then stalls

your battery is toast get a new one when you get a new one ride it for awhile if it dies on you while you are riding your stator is dead and you need to get it replaced its really easy to do yourself.

Replaced stator and battery, bike still givin trouble

the regulater is located between tha battery and the gas tank .There are (3) white and(2)red wires .See if they are showing signs of damage from heat more than likley they are because when you "boost" or jump these bikes you burn a very weak diode witch regulates the charging time from the stator i would check ebay for the best price on a new regulater rectifier you may need one.I had the same problem with my 2000 model r6.good luck bro!

If battery is running down. The engine may not be charging the battery. Check charging system. If running on battery, the bike will run fine for awhile then die as the battery can no longer provide spark to the engine. If charging system is less than 13.0 volts could be a ad stator or regulator. Make sure the battery posts are clean, a bad ground can cause problems too.

08 650 executive, new battery but charging system doesn't charge

Your running off the battery until it dies. Check your chargng system. It should put out 13.0-14.5 volts. If not then the current will flow from what ever source has the most voltage. Thus, your dead battery. Try changing he voltage regulator and then check the stator next. Sometime stators can have burned section on them and reduce the voltage produced to the battery. Also check for really good connectin to the terminals. This can rob current and voltage by upt o 40%.
