    So I've just had my daytona recalled for the rectifier and it's still got a charging fault, I pulled over for a smoke and it wouldn't restart.
    Managed to bump it, a couple miles down the road fuel light and engine management light came on and then it died.
    If I replace the stator will it need a new rectifier as well or will it be OK?
    I don't want one to make the other go again if you know what I mean.
    The bike is starting to annoy me now with its reliability, not even my Italian bikes were this much trouble

    Have you checked what voltage is at each winding and output of the rr?

    I haven't checked the rectifier cause it's just been replaced and only ridden once, when I tested the stator I'm pretty sure it came back fine, I can't remember the stats now.
    but obviously there is still a problem.
    The only thing it can be now is the stator surely?
    It's had a new battery since the rectifier was replaced and it was showing 13.4v after I broke down it was showing 11.2v which was why it wouldn't start.

    A failed reg/rec will toast a battery if it's gone.

    I got the bike back with a new rectifier last Tuesday and today was its first ride

    Did they replace the battery?

    Otherwise I'd say you're on the right track with the stator though.

    I put a new battery on it last night for the ride today

    If you can bump it and check voltage you'll find out if it's the stator.

    If it has a new stator will it need a new rectifier as well?

    Sometimes but not always.

    Not looked at the wiring diagram but there is a fuse on most I have looked at between the reg and battery that goes so no charge to battery

    If you find out where it is exactly please let me know, that could save me a pretty penny.

    Just to clarify, will the bike still start with a blown 30 amp fuse as long as the battery has enough charge?

    Also the fuse is under the piviot bit of the tank and a pain to get to lol

    Had a quick look and the fuse is integrated into the starter relay so won't be that as it would kill everything from the battery.
     
  16. If the reg Rev has blown once but the battery keeps failing after it has been replaced.

    Check the battery state, if it’s goosed get a new one and try again,

    If it happens again then check the stator winding to see if they are toast.

    Replacing one parting a failing circuit will cost you a lot in the long run.

    I replaced 3 batts on my old cbr600rr before replacing the stator, starter, reg rec and battery just to stop the issue

    It had a new battery put on 2 days ago, which was charged before use, the bloody thing is going to a machanic, I can't deal with my bike breaking down again, he said he'll test it for free so it's all good.

    So my issues were due to the stator, one wire in the case wore through and the yellow wire that pugs into the rectifier also burnt out, next time I'll pay someone to fix it cause its a pig to get the wiring tidy. IMG_20190517_094249.jpeg IMG_20190517_093824.jpeg IMG_20190517_093816.jpeg

    pleased you got sorted
    I just got my bike moted this morning
    they were working on another bike with a running issue
    you wouldn't believe the state of the wiring when they found the fault (not a triumph by the way )
