    Hi folks,

    So I have a charging issue on my 2002 GSXR 600. It appears like the battery is not being charged much anymore. At idle, the battery is reading 12.3v. Once you bring the RPM up, the battery will drop as low as 10.5v. Battery is probably not the issue as it is only a 1 year old Odyssey battery... and it's a pretty big one.

    So two questions:
    • Has anyone every seen a stator burn out or is it usually the rectifier/regulator?
    • How can I check if I'm drawing too much current for the motor alternator?


    Thanks guys!

    Regulator/rectifier is the more likely suspect. If you download a manual, there is a procedure to test the stator and the regulator.

    I agree with Liduno the rectifier is probably suspect but the manual has a testing protocol for sure

    If i'm not mistaken the charging system on the GSXR's of that era had charging issues. The fix is to get a Rick's stator upgrade. I thought I had some issues as well, but it was the cheap plug that was on there. The plug got super hot for some reason so i cut the plug out and soldered things back together.

    I have seen a bunch of melted plugs.
