It happened to me and it was the light bulb. someone had changed for a super bright blue. make sure there is no non standard electrical equipment on the bike. Also you only get a year to 18months out of a battery for this bike.

Where is the rectifier located on an unidentified mower/tractor?


It the machine has a rectifier it is built into the voltage regulator on the engine. It is considered a regulator/rectifier which both changes the AC voltage from the stator or alternator into DC voltage and then regulates the charge going back to the battery.

While riding at night my bike died and could not be started without battery jump. Where do ifind the magneto and regulator to test? and wht output should i be expecting?


its an alternator not magneto, there should be 3 wires white or yellow, going to the reg\rectifier, multi meter across any pair(unplugged) should show 50-80 volts at 2000rpm non of these should short to earth, multi meter across battery should show up to 14v at 2-3000rpm.with everything plugged back in
if alternator checks out, and no voltage more than 12 at battery , replace regulator,,

all assuming the battery wasn't fried when it ran out of acid

my guess is new stator\alternator required

Honda's are known for Regulator Rectifier faults, this sounds like the right sort of symptoms

My battery in 1981 suzuki gs 850 g keeps dying on me, I charge it up everytime I come back from a ride,the battery is only a few weeks old,could it be my voltage regulator,or a wire that has some of the...


Start the bike and put a voltmeter across the battery; you should get a reading of probably around 13.5V. If you're getting only about 12V or less, the battery isn't charging. From there you will need to go to the alternator terminal on the regulator and see if you're getting more than 12V. If you are, the regulator is probably bad, if not it could be a bad rectifier if there is a seperate rectifier or a bad stator. Good luck and safe riding.

For my honda cbr400, how does the stator affect the regulator rectifier? does it also affect the cdi in the process?


The stator is essentially an alternator (generator) that produces alternating current (ac). The rectifier converts the ac currect to direct current (dc). This dc currect is not very stable and is considered noisy. Alcohol, the voltage os proportional to the engine speed (rpms). Therefore a voltage regulator is added to keep the voltage at an acceptable level and not damage anything on the circuit (battery, radio, even headlights have a shorter life if too mush voltage is sent to them. If the stator is burned out (common on bikes from the early/mid 1980s, then there is no current produced and the battery ends up powering the system when you ride. The battery will eventually die and your bike will stop running. Hope this has what you need.

To check the stator, you should have continuity between all three yellow wires and no continuity between any yellow wires and ground. If the stator tests good you probably need the regulator/rectifier.

Having problem with bike keeping charge new battery but wondering how to check stator, i took positive cable and negative cable and bike died wandering if it supposed to stay running with one or the other...


yes it should just replaced the regulator rectifier on my friends bike same problem as yours he kept replaceing battery and rechargeing it. it was the regulator( 5 wire box just to the left of the seat on his 01 gsxr 750) it costed 81.00 from bikebandit.com
to test it you can start by putting a volt meter on the battery and checking volts off (12v) and then running, it should go above 13v if the volts dont go up then its prob the regulator rectifier box to check your stator i use my meter for hertz or cycles or a tach one wire to ground and one wire to the yellow wires from the stator one at a time the tach should read same as the one on the bike on all three wires
hopefully it reads good cause it is a whole lot easer to replace the vrr than the stator

You need to use an ohmeter and test the stator to see if it is grounded out. Pull the plug going to the regulator and put one lead to a good ground and then poke the other lead in each of the connector holes to the stator. do this with the motor not running. If you have continutity on either wire to ground then the stator is shorted/grounded and must be replaced. If everything is ok there then the regulator is bad.

Bike not charging


Sounds like regulator/rectifier, stator, or charging rotor.

Overcharging battery!?


If it goes over 17 then there is definitely a regulator fault, regardless of what the stator is doing. The very purpose of the regulator (it 'regulates' the voltage within limits) is to NOT allow the output dc voltage to climb when the stator output rises (normal) with increased engine rpm. In other words - by nature of way it works normally, the stator AC output Voltage will rise as the engine rpm increases - it will continue to rise all the way to peak engine rpm. The Rectifier/ regulator with its double-barrel name performs two functions: the first - rectifier - converts the AC output of the Stator to DC volts - if 'UN-regulated' the DC volts would also climb proportionally to engine rpm. But that is where the second function of the Rectifier/Regulator - the Regulator - comes in. The Regulator's job is to stop the voltage rising over a certain threshold even if the stator is trying to drive it higher. It does this by 'shunting' current to ground (short circuit effectively) in a series of pulses; this controlled operation is called regulation. The limit is going to be 15V absolute max and more typically 14.5 or so. If the output rises about this value then it absolutely is NOT regulating. Failures of the regulator where they simply don't regulate and allow full voltage to pass are rare (but not impossible) - much more likely to be short or open circuit, neither or which would give the symptom you have. It still sounds almost like you maybe wired it incorrectly? The stator is inside the left crancase cover - whether or not it has its own problems, have nothing to do with the lack of regulation causing battery volts to go to 17V.
