Bike is Dead- Voltage Regulator??? - May 19, 2008, 01:15 PM

Rode in to work this morning and when I went to flash my ID at the guards so they would let me in the compound I notices my gauges were blinking on/off and on my way to my parking spot the bike died...completely died. Even in the on position I am getting no juice. I have been having trouble keeping a charge on the battery so I was trickle charging it over night and bump starting when necessary for teh past few weeks thinking it was just the battery. Finally I bought a new one a few days ago- all was fine but I had to bump start the bike this AM because the battery was drained.

I am thinking this is a classic voltage regulator problem and I just need a new one.

I ride a 2000 R6 w/ ~30K Can anyone confirm my theory or have any other ideas?

Thanks

It's very possible. I'm starting to have the same problems with my R1... I just got a new battery in the fall so it sounds like it could be...

Eiii You're scaring me! My new battery just got here today. Hope I'm not going to have the same issues. Let us know when you find out for sure what's up.

yup check to see if your battery is getting a charge. Also check all wires leading to the battery!!!! A bad ground will cause this problem also.

all the wiring is a-ok. All is hooked up right and the battery is brand new so that is why I am thinking next piece to be fauly may be voltage regulator

test your own theory. Get a voltmeter and check it at the terminals while it's running.

Should read 13.5-14.4 volts.
