Question How To Check The Stator Voltage???

hey guys my battery is rapidly draining and i asked the guys at the dealer what it could be and they said it might be a stator issue... they said it probably wasn't the regulator...

so I'm wondering what is the process for checking the voltage in it? i have a multimeter btw. also someone mentioned something about having to have like the original specs for the voltage in the stator or something? how can i get these for a GY6 qmb139 49cc engine? also should i post this in the repair forum?

thanks.

May not be your particular model, but the results are the same.
Start here http://www.thegsresources.com/garage/gs_statorfacts.htm
and follow the other parts.

That is also the sign of a worn out (sulphated) battery.

The first thing you should do is charge the battery and have it load tested.
About 90% of the cases of "my battery won't hold a charge" is because of the battery itself.

THEN......there is really no reason to test the stator voltages IF the battery is receiving sufficient charging voltage when the bike is running; that being 12.8 volts or higher. If the running voltage never goes below the resting voltage of the battery, then it's likely that your charging system is OK and there is no reason to take it apart for other tests.

Have you read ALL of the information that is available to you in the link that I posted yet?

Save the "dude" crap.

If you want better advice, you need to supply ALL the facts.

At what point are you going to stop guessing and take it to a mechanic ??

If you have bought 4 batteries, you have wasted about $200 already.

I'm done.
