Gsxr600 problems!!?(STATOR VS BATTERY)

hey guys,

I replaced my stator a week ago, but yesterday the bike did not want to start again!!! I ask this guy about it, he ask me if i also replaced the battery. I said no, well battery are not suppose to last forever, he said. Could it be the stator problem again, or was he right about the battery? If the stator is burn out agian what could be burning it out? I havent tested with a volt meter yet, I will do on Friday tho.

An old trick I was taught was to remove the battery cable after the bike was running and see what happened. If the stator was out, the bike will die....If the stator is charging like it should, the bike will stay running...BUT, this was done with old bikes (78 model CB and such). I'm sure it still stands true though.

Could have a draw on the battery that is killing it with the bike off. The only problem is that you are in the same boat without a VOLTMETER & the skill set to use it... Could have had this thing fixed by now if you woulda just taken it to a shop.

Well I was on it for a week i maybe put 100 miles on it, and when i was done replacing the stator i check the voltmeter on the battery at 5000 rpms it read 14.5 volts! I have the the voltmeter and the skill set, the only thing I don't have is (time) to be messing with it. And I don't have money to take it to the shop ether.

are u getting any power at all???? it could be your rectifier. Your A regulator regulates the voltage, preventing overcharging of the electrical system.
A rectifier converts the AC current form the alternator, into DC current for use on a battery system.. if ur not gettin any power at all even with the ignition on then u blew a 3 amp fuse dat ull find under ur seat. just follow the positive cable and u will find a little box with a clear cap.. there should be a green 3 amp fuse there and ull have a spare. just replace it. i just had this problem on my bike. but again do this only if ur not gettin any power at all.

either take it in somewhere, or buy yourself a nice DVOM and owners manual.

I think it is the stator again but why would it burning up though? I mean i can fix it but, the problem is that it is burning up the stator or shorting!!!!!

Word of caution: If your rectifier is bad and you have a short in your wires (which caused the rectifier to go out), you will go through a couple of stators before you figure it out (which may have just happened). I've seen this many times. Check your wiring at the rectifier and trace it back. When the rectifier is not working properly, your wiring harness over heats and eventually creates a short. This short then fries your stator.

Charge the battery, turn the bike on (engine running). Check your voltage at the battery. If the voltage drops as you give it gas (or does not increase) your rectifier is no good.

There is a way to test the stator with an ohmmeter. If you have a short somewhere, your stator is now also fried. This happens most of the time. Check all of your molex connectors - that is usually where the short occurs.
