zx6r 03 not charging, need serious help!!!

Hello, i got an zx6r 2003 last year and did a renovation on it, powdercoated the frame and stuff, but when i was done my bike wont charge, keeps drain the battery after some hours of rideing,
i replaced the battery, regulator and the stator, still the same issue, bike feels weak at idlespeed when you brake it will easily die, i checked the groundcables to the frame and that but nothing, i dont know what to do, been having this problem for 2 month soon, the battery voltage is around 13.6 - 13.8, manual says 14.2 - 15.2

Battery voltage should be close to 14 when the engine is on.

Do u have any aftermarket electronics installed?

Hmm. 13.8 is not too bad but not that great either.

If this happened right after u added the LED light, try disconnecting it and see if it makes a difference. U might have a bad unit thats drawing a lotta power.

Did you sand or file the powdercoat off where the ground cable attaches?

And did you check charging system output at idle (1600ish rpms) or did you rev it to around 4000 rpms as per the manual

leave your voltmeter on the battery and turn on the key, what does it drop to?
then when you hit the start button what does it drop to?

woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
