Bike not charging the battery

Ok, its been awhile since I posted on here. My 2000 SV is having problems. The bike is not charging the battery at all, I can ride it but the battey goes dead after a couple of rides, so I have stopped riding it. I just installed a new battery since I thought the original battery was the culprit, guess not. So what parts would need replaced?? It only has like 11,000 miles since I don't get to ride all that much. I laid it down 2 years ago and didn't get to ride it hardly at all last year. Suggestions?? I hate to have to go to the dealership and spend big$$ to get it fixed if its only the rectifer? or stator? Guess I will have to crack the Haynes manual open.

Re: Bike not charging the battery

Check the stator and upgrade your RR to one off a larger higher end bike. They usualy come with better RR. I just swapped mine out for a '05 GSXR1000 RR and it works great. quite a bit larger but will still clear the tail fairing. Several members have upgraded to Honda unit and are very happy with the setup.

Refer to my "solidFIX" for the charging system thread.

Re: Bike not charging the battery

I will check the stator and RR out. Hopefully its an easy fix i haven't been able to ride it due to not being reliable. Is there an issue with the SV's charging system going bad? I haven't heard of it before.

Re: Bike not charging the battery

If you kill a battery and then just drive around for 10-15 mins it wont charge the battery. YOu need to go for a nice long hour drive to charge up a motorcycle battery from dead

RR weakness is not unique to the SV, part of the problem of 1st gen SV's is where they hid it in the tail where it can't get cooling air, a duct venting air toward the heat sink fins helps a lot, a computer cpu fan can help too.

there are some RRs from other bikes that have better heat sinks


it's very unlikely a stator problem

The SV's RR is destine to failure by design

I have a battery charger. I just bought the battery charged it fully and in 2-3 quick rides it drained the battery. the bikes charging system is broke.

Re: Bike not charging the battery

If I was a gambling man... I'd bet that the R/R is shot. Go get yourself a used GSXR or similar RR off ebay.

check the statoralso. Just in case I'm wrong.
