05 Honda charging issue??

Anyone have a Honda 04-07 with a bad charging issue I.e (stator,rectifier,battery,wiring harness) if so can someone chime some light on the issue. Where to buy a decent stator that will last. I know Hondas are real sensitive with low battery charge

Considering the year, it could be all the above. Have you put a volt meter to the battery before, and while running?

Start with the battery and battery connections. A dead cell will screw everything up. If the battery is good, pull the plug between the stator and rectifier (should be 3 wires). Check impedance between all three leads. Should be less than 0.02 ohms. Anything higher and the stator is bad. Buy OEM. Third party stators are hit or miss. Another thing to check is Voltage at the battery while running. Should be around 13.5v at idle and near 15v at 5k RMP. Check this while checking battery and before pulling stator plug.

My money is on the stator. If he used a third party stator, it might have been faulty. I bought a third party stator that didn't charge properly. Went OEM via cheapcycleparts.com and haven't had an issue since. Tony at HoP advised me several times to avoid third party stators. I decided to save a few bucks and ignore him. It just ended up costing me more money.

Hondas are notorious for bad rectifiers.

So what exactly is happening? Isit starting then dying? Or just not starting at all? I ask because I have had a similar issue where my battery would die in a week if it wasn't started and run or not plugged into a tender.

BUY A VOLTMETER

this one works great, and you can measure while you ride (with things under load)

http://www.aerostich.com/5-function-digital-meter.html

It does act funny when it gets wet though...but I just needed it for one simple test.

Anyway, a regular $15 didgital coltmeter will work pretty well.

Get a new battery or a good loaner

Measure between terminals with the thing running. If your not getting 14+ volts, I'd gamble on the stator.

Mine was running as low as 11 while riding. Killed a new battery in a month.

Old stator has a burnt out node.

OEM one was about $300

My sister had an 04 CBR600rr and it would fail to start after the bike warmed up even with a brand new battery. It would start cold everytime. It was due to heat reflection on to the regulator rectifier. I replaced it with an aftermarket one and its been fine ever since. Research the R/R problem on those years and you will see plenty on it. Honda even issued a new part which is a heat shield, but that doesn't fix it if the R/R is already damaged from overheating. If you ride alot of low speed riding, or in traffic, or in Houston at all in summer its possible your R/R is bad. It was $130 to get a new one, and it took more time to take the fairings off then to replace the part.

Well the bike won't start unless its on a battery tender as soon as you unhook it the bike dies out. I remember my 929 would do this and it ended up being my battery. I'm gonna replace and keep a back up stator and rectifier on hand cause I hear the issue is horrible. I'm gonna test everything out first to see if I can determine the problem.

That's what happened to mine. Replaced the battery and all was good, but I'm afraid it is something more so I am going to be trying out the voltmeter on it to make sure.
