    Default 93 sporty charging issues

    Got a friend of mine who has a 93 sporty chop that is no longer charging the battery. He said he change the stator and the voltage regulator out for new ones still nothing and its got a fresh ground on it. Any suggestions on this?

    is it a new battery? how many volts is he putting out while its running? there is always the chance of new bad parts but id be inclined to think its a poor connection or miswiring first

    If he is using the same battery again it won't work. I had a problem beofre that I thought was my charging system and it just turned out to be a slight bit of water in the ignition switch that was causing a false "on" and ate my coil battery and regulator. Just saying try everything. Test the stor and regulator with an ampmeter

    just attach the meter to the battery terminals while its sitting there idling and than maybe step it up in revs at a constant pitch, so idle-test, hold it at a little gas- test, open it up like quarter turn and hold it-test and see what its putting out at each interval

    14v is everything working fine
    less and its not charging- bad stator or connection some where
    more and the voltage regulator isnt working and has/will fry the battery
