Accel Alternator Stator And GENERATOR ??????

Is it true that if you disconnect your battery while it is running it should not turn off? and if it does you have a stator problem?

On older cars you use to be able to disconnect the battery.


Now days the bike needs the closed loop to complete the circuit and distinguish between the two opposing poles.


DVOM, check the AC voltage at each of the three wires running into the connector of the rectifier. The other two wires are the power/ground. If the ACV is around 180(or whatever your bike spec is), your stator is ok.

If not, its time to pull the cover off and see whats going on.

Im a tech and only once out of 14yrs have I seen a battery w an internal short in it, killing the charging system.(on an x5)


Otherwise, the battery completes the circuit of the system and holds charge for cranking the engine over. The charging system is responsible for charging and maintaining the system while riding.

Keep in mind other things can be at fault too from draws or other things.


So happens last night my kickstand switch went out so my bike wouldnt run in gear... and my battery was already weak so I ended up pushing w no light etc

Dies when you put it in gear or while riding. If its intermittent it can be hard to diagnose.

Part of the joy of riding


It happens. The more you learn through this trial the better your experience will be for the next problem that creaps up.

same prob here. last year i was riding to work and all the sudden my lights and cluster started acting retarded. It was my rectifier but if this is your problem it is an easy fix just unplug the old one and plug in the new one.
