Another RECTIFIER?

hey guys me again with another dumb question? what does a RECTIFIER do?
I know a stator charges the battery right? So if you are have charging problems why is RECTIFIER also important? thanx for the advise!

The stator has magnets and wire coils that creates a/c (alternating current) power from the magnet's forces acting upon the coil windings. One wire attached to each of the coils goes up to the rectifier. Since A/C voltage switches between positive and negative pulls it is no good for a motorcycle that requires a direct power and direct ground. The rectifier only allows the waves of power to pass on to the battery.

Too make it simple...It(regulator/rectifier)Converts the AC current (which a stator produces) to DC current, which all the on your bike requires.

Cars are the same way.

The generator/stator makes very low load power; basically free power... one small device converts it to a power/ground. Done. Less amperage/electricution etc.

InfoFAQ: Tell me about the Regulator Rectifier. What does it do?

Answer: The regulator rectifier is a combined unit. It does the rectifying part as well the regulation part. It is part of a battery charging system. It gets a power feed, an AC power feed from the stator. Most of these regulator rectifiers and Stators are 3-Phase, for charging batteries, so there are three wires coming from the stator feeding into the regulator rectifier. Then the regulator rectifier “rectifies” it, and “regulates” the power to 14.5 volts and feeds a DC out to the battery. There are some single phase, regulator rectifiers as well that basically do the same thing. You have two wires coming from the stator, feeding into the regulator rectifier which is then connected up to the battery, so there is a DC output going to the battery.

Why dont you just take it to M.U. or Sunny's or go get a 8mm and open the stator case if you have already checked everything else...I've seen 3 different threads on this problem you're having, I dont know that much about bikes either, but I know this is driving you crazy.
