        ........ and you are confident that the problem is in the charging system rather than the battery itself?

      Rob.
    I forgot to mention a new battery was put into the bike by the dealer when I bought the bike (6 month ago). I couldn't test ride the bike the first time and the battery wasn't charging properly. Some weeks later it felt weak and I bought a charger. I only charged it once or twice. It was winter and I didn't think much of it due to the few mods on it which could drain battery and the cold weather.
    This battery was a cheap one which ended up failing when my bike "accidentally" dropped to the side and saved itself by the crash bars  :020:  :756:
    So I replaced it by a Yuasa YTZ14S early Sept. (I was recommended a YTX9-BS by Battery World) but the bigger one fitted perfect.
    So as far as I know, battery was amazing, and this was the reason I realised I had an issue after my new one drained recently

    Check out the videos at roadstercycle.com scroll down to 9th 10th and 11th.

    get yourself a digital voltmeter (relatively good one $50-$100 range at least.) and test the stator yourself, several resistance measurements with bike off and stator unplugged and and ac voltage tests when running. It's 3 wires, they are shorted to ground or not. shorted to each other or not, or burned open. Test ac voltage with it running, If the resistance and ac voltage tests pass, replace the rectifier after doing those tests, see videos,,,   Also examine the plug where the stator wires plug into the rectifier for any signs of getting hot. those connections fail on a lot of different brands of bikes

    Then follow the instructions in the attached Charging System fault-finding-diagram I found on the Web a few years back  :031:

    Sorry guys I forgot to update (not use to this forum thing)  :756:

    YES! all fixed and much much cheaper than the original $1.7K quoted by Kawasaki  :020:

    I was recommended an amazing electrical guy, part time retired and working 2 days a week, and got the stator rewind for $250. He also heavily tested the reg/rec and found no issue with it so no replacement.
    My battery was saved despite dying 4 times and the bike was back to me 2 days later.

    Never been so happy  :763:

    Thanks for your info. BTW, iīve got a Versys 1000 (2012) and after 500 kms in Spain...dead (despite a new battery installed). The mechanic told me a new stator is needed and got it via ebay (begonia sale), since major shops donīt have it below 400€. Did you solved the problem or found another cause of problem ?

    Thank you

    Three things need to be good, the battery, the stator and the rectifier.....
    Best have your battery charged and load tested... a local shop may do for free.  IF your battery is good, then check the charging voltage at idle, and at higher rpms (4000-ish), it should read 14-14.5V DC.

    Simple checks of a stator are resistance of the three coils, that they are not shorted to each other or to ground.
    A dynamic test is to check the output voltage while the engine is running, the service manual for a 2015 V1K says 40V AC at 4000 rpm, and should vary with rpm.

    Not a lot you can do with a rectifier, but....... these videos are some standard tests.




    I'm not sure what R/R the 2012 has... if I were replacing I'd go with one from Roadster Cycle, he sells genuine Shindengens...... you could go with FH020AA, SH775 or the big SH847.
    2016 V1000 LT,  '99 VFR 800, 2013 Fazer8 (project).

    Experience is a great teacher, she gives you the tests first and the lessons later.
