how long did it run on the new battery? did you charge the new one before starting the bike?

if youve got a volt meter measure the voltage at the battery as the bike sits off, youll want around 12.8+
start the bike and measure the voltage, it should be above 13.4 if its in the 12s or less you have a charging issue which could be caused by the rectifier, the stator or both.

ok now you know its not charging
so youve narrowed the issue to the stator or the rectifier

easiest thing to test is the stator

find the plug for the 3 wires (often all yellow) that go into the rectifier
imagine them as being labeled A B C

with the volt meter set to resistance measure each of the pairs of wires and note the readings

AB
AC
BC

I dont know off hand what the values should be but consistency is what were looking for , if one is vastly different that the other pairs then theres a problem with the stator

second step in testing is to start the bike and rev it to about 3k

set the volt meter to AC voltage and measure the 3 pairs of wires again and note the voltages for each, youre looking for around 42v AC

What he said.

42v minimum.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.

hes only had 3 hours to test the stator...


wheres our results
