Suzuki Ltz 400 battery not charging help plz

Recommended Posts

Hi I just recently had a full engine rebuild that’s all fine but the battery is not charging so the mechanic Said it’s the stator or the rectifier  so just bought them and it’s still not charging the battery. What else can it be.

It could be that the battery was drained and is now bad, I would get it tested. But more than likely if it was fine before, your mechanic left off a ground or something else. I would start testing wires for voltage.

While the bike is running take the battery terminals off of the battery and test for voltage with a tester on the terminal wires.   See if you get DC voltage and if so what is the voltage?

Ok for the replies getting the quad bk 2nite so will give it a try 2moz and let u no. Thanks.

He did say there is voltage coming out the stator into the  rectifier but nuffing coming out the rectifier into the battery but it’s a new part.

I think you have to go through all of the wiring with a tester as well as make sure all wires,plugs,grounds are properly reconnected. Especially because it’s a rebuild a wire could have gotten hit someplace.  Second if the bike runs take the battery off and run the bike and test for voltage on the terminal wires. Lastly I would reinstall the old rectifier if you still have it and try that.  Look for fuses etc.  Aside from that you will have to look into the engine to verify that the stator is working correctly and all of the components were installed properly.  Get the bike back and try those few things and see what happens.

One of the wires that plug in to the rectifier was Brock.

      Back again with another headache, maybe you guys can help me out. 
      Picked up a 87 Bayou 300 not running of course, all stator wires melted 
      on the motor and also no spark. I checked the pick up coil ohmed out good. 
      traced the wires and led to no cdi box, yes missing. So ordered it and while waited 
      fixed the stator wires, had to wire direct to harness. Get the cdi installed and after a lot
      of other things started it up. Battery dead so used a batt charger to start it. Now when i shut
      off the charger the motor died. So i check charging voltage...nada. I see voltage regulator is 
      old and catalist leaking so i replaced it. Same thing no charge. I check stator and no voltage 
      with it unpluged from harness while running. Soooooo i replace stator. Now Stator wires have
      23v and up to over 50v at higher rpms. So i know its charging now. Connect everything back up and 
      no charge voltage at battery! Still dies when i shut off charger. All 3 yellow stator wires have good voltage, checked
      harness from stator to regulator and is good. The white wire has battery voltage at regulator, the brown wire has battery 
      voltage at regulator when key on. The Black/yellow stripe has good ground. I get 3 volts at battery when i shut off charger. 
      If i connect old regulator i get 7 volts when i shut off charger. Do i have a defective new regulator? Im stumped. when i 
      figure this one out i have a big wiring problem on another one ill let you in on.  Az

      Good morning!
      I have a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350 4X4 and I need to rebuild the carb. I have the dual-cable throttle model and I'm having a terrible time finding the correct kit for it. I'm not opposed to replacing it, but the only ones I'm seeing do not have the dual cable throttle system. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Jay in WI
       
      P.S. I can send pictures if necessary.

      This 700 was run out of oil. Seized the con rod to the crank....yada yada. So, I rebuilt the engine and now it will start and run for about 5 seconds and die. I replaced the fuel pump with a cheapie from ebay and it didn't change. I replaced the O-rings on the injector and still didn't change. So, the tech at the Yamaha shop said that the most likely problem is the cheapo fuel pump. I got another more expensive one and it still didn't change things. I asked him where the power to the injector comes from and he said the CDI box. But since the thing does run a little, he  ruled that out. Any thoughts?????

      Ive got a Big Bear 350 4x4 that has been sitting for a couple years. It was put away running but now the pull start wont move and the starter wont turn it either. Any ideas what I can lube up or bang around to loosen it up? Thanks

      Anyone know if the stator cover gasket needs sealant?
      Thanks
