HELP ! ! ! Charging system problems
I have a 2001 ZX-6R with an ongoing problem with the charging system.
July 2008. At first I thought it was the battery, replaced the battery. It turned out to be the stator was blown. I replaced the stator(aftermarket). The bike seemed to work fine, for a week. It cut out while driving down 407 doing 120kph. Total loss of electrical power. Checked charging sytem and stator was blown again, two of the three phases were burnt like the original one was. Also found that the Rectifier/Regulator wasn't working, which probably blew the stator. Installed a new aftermarket stator and a used rectifier/regulator. Bike work fine for rest of year, and even at 2009 Bike Week in Daytona.
June 2009 the rectifier/regulator blew and took the stator with it. Replaced the stator again and replaced the rect./reg. with one from RM Stator in Quebec. Sept.13th bike wouldn't start after running for a hour ride. Battery was dead. Not holding a charge. Bought another battery, a GEL cell. Rechecked ther charging system and system not charging. Head light works, so I know the rect./reg. is working. Tested system and it looks like the stator is gone, again.
Anyone have a similar situation, or a solution?
