battery not charging on gsxr600???

i got an 07 gsxr600 and the battery keeps going dead constantly, i charged the battery all the way and then drove the bike for an hour, then at a stop light it died, so i go to start it and its dead, so i had to push start it in the intersection, then when i get home i go back into town to buy a new battery(i needed another anyways), i charge it all the way then go ride it some more and it does the same thing, so which would it be the rectifier or magneto?

magneto

no expert here at all and I'm just poking fun with the comic but I think most people call them stators rather than magnetos

It's not your battery, most likely the rectifier.

Stator or rectifier. Easy fix EXCEPT the plug is under the airbox. What a PITA!

Could honestly be either or even both.
Make sure to check the entire system out to determine the cause of the issue before replacing parts.

buy an owners manual, properly diagnose it. OR take it to a reputable shop, ie. patrick (Motorcycles Unlimited)

"over the phone" and "over the internet" diagnosis will not get you far.

I say stator. I had a costumer that kept coming in with his bike dying. I'd throw a regulator on it cuz that's what he told me to put on it. It would charge for abou a week then die again. Put a stator on it an rechecked all the regulators I put on it and they were all good.

But def check the stator. Or just replace both and prob solved

REGULATED VOLTAGE

Start the engine and keep it running at 5 000 r/min with the
dimmer switch turned HI position.
Measure the DC voltage between the + and - battery terminals
using the multi-circuit tester. If the voltage is not within
the specified value, inspect the generator and regulator/rectifier.
(9-10 and -11)
NOTE:
When making this test, be sure that the battery is in fully-charged
condition.
Regulated voltage (Charging output):
14.0 15.5 V at 5 000 r/min

GENERATOR COIL RESISTANCE

Disconnect the generator coupler.
Measure the resistance between the three lead wires.
If the resistance is out of specified value, replace the stator
with a new one. Also, check that the generator core is insulated
properly.
Generator coil resistance: 0.2 0.9 Ω (White White)
∞ Ω (White Ground)


ELECTRICAL SYSTEM 9-11
GENERATOR NO-LOAD PERFORMANCE

Disconnect the generator coupler.
Start the engine and keep it running at 5 000 r/min.
Using the multi-circuit tester, measure the voltage between
three lead wires.
If the tester reads under the specified value, replace the generator
with a new one.

Generator no-load performance:
65 V (AC) and more at 5 000 r/min (When engine is cold)
