Question about 2001 Suzuki SV 650 S

2 Answers

I have a 2001 Suzuki SV650. When I purchased it (about a month ago), a new battery was installed. The bike was running fine, but 4 days ago, the battery died. So I hooked it up to a trickle charger, and let it charge. When it was fully charged, I hooked it back up. I had 1 return trip with the bike (about 15min each way) and then the battery died when I tried to start the bike up a few hours later. Does anyone know what may be going wrong with my bike?

The same thing happened to me (2002 sv650) and it turned out to be the voltage regulator. Check it.

Sounds like a charging system. same thing happens with cars when the alternator goes kaput. so i would say check your charging system weather it be an alternator or generator.

2001 Hyundia Sonata changed 4 alternators in 6 months, figure it has to be something else. Car will start and run fine and then will die while driving. Will start up again sometimes on its own and...


Two ways the the battery was the problem:
1. It was not the right voltage battery installed.
2. It was a faulty battery...which is very possible.
As of right now, you Sonata runs, correct?

I just put a brand new battey in my 95 katana but it still.loses power and dies and wont start


Sounds like your regulator/rectifier has failed. This is a fairly common fault on GS and GSX models, particularly the smaller capacity (below 750cc) models. Did the oil level fall below minimum at any time, because this can cause the generator on some models to overheat, causing a power surge which can burn out the regulator. Get the generator checked and fit a new regulator/rectifier.

My son's 2001 SV650 Suzuki battery was not holding a charge. We purchased a new battery. Next day, same thing. The shop said its the regulator, but wait, it still did not work so they said its...


G'day.
Well I was just going to log off & do some work & I saw your question & had to answer.
I HATE IT when people take advantage of female bike owners/customers.
It sounds like you could use all (or ANY) help you can get.
So I want to answer your questions as accuratly as I can get.
Should you now pay for another regulator-I should think not.-the shop should sort this out for you-If they fitted a regulator WITHOUT testing the stator(which they should have to find out what caused the regulator to go)-& then burn out the good NEW regulator because of the stator-& then now want to charge YOU for the second regulator-NO WAY.

I don't know what else to say!
Heres a link to the part you need & fitting a regulator is usually pritty easy -un-bolt it- dis-connect it- reconect new one & bolt in place.Heres the link with the part & price.It seems that there are two types of regulator.
One is $184.79 & the other $213.31(US)

I hope this answers your Questions & I do think that the shop should have just sorted this.You have to worry what will hapen if they fit the new regulator & if it still dosn't fix it!!!! : (
Let me know if I can help in any other way
Kindest of regards Andrew Porrelli

Check the stater it may need replacing. check timing, check plugs, clean carb jets, check air filters of breather box, check petcock of fuel tank. add fuel filter to see fuel flow. check floats in carb. check igniton plate, coil wires and plugs.
