Testing Stator/Regulator

How would I go about doing this. My battery keeps going dead. Mainly just when the lights are on.



Stator or regulator?

Check the output of the stator wires you were showing in your earlier picture, and also check how much your battery is being charged, read up in the service manual in the stickys for the specs.........

Stock everything.



Like I said if I charge the battery fully it will be ok pretty much all day just for starting. But after I turn the lights on for about 30 minutes or so I guess it drains it to where it does not have enough to turn it over.


When I did turn on the lights it had been after running and starting it all day. So it's not like if I have a full charge and I turn on the light for 30 miuntes that it won't start anymore.


It's a gradual thing I guess is what i'm trying to say.

Here is how you can test the regulator.
http://www.electrosport.com/technica...ting-guide.pdf

My stator went bad and I replaced it with an electrosport stator. It had about the highest wattage out put, 300w. It also raised my reverse rev limiter because it doesnt have the rotor rotation coils on the stator. I still have a rev limiter but it is around 5-6K. Kind of nice because you can re hook the wire up if you by passed it, and have your reverse light work again.

Thanks a lot. I looked at the info on how to test it but i'm pretty stupid when it comes to electrical stuff like that.


And I don't have a fluke


So. Do you know anyway to test it using a regular volt meter?

a Fluke is just a regular digital Volt/Ohm/Ammeter. If you have an equivalent meter, you have all you need to do the tests.

So to test the regulator does the bike have to be running? Any info on how to test the stator?

Yes the bike has to be running, and you test the voltage out put of the stator in AC volts............

You have to take the regulator off to test it. What your checking for is to make sure the diodes only flow electricity in one direction.
