    Hi, so my '98 VTR Firestorm was in need of a rectifier as the one in it wasn't recharging properly and was running super hot. As parts for these bikes are pretty scarce where I live, I had to resort to an unbranded rectifier which is said to be compatible with the CBR 600 F4i. All pins of this...

    Today we noticed that in our firestorm the rectifier would overheat within minutes after starting the bike and sitting idle. Looks like we need a replacement. Unfortunately there aren't any to be found. There are Honda CBR600F rectifiers. It would be helpful if someone could confirm if it would...

    I have a 2005 Suzuki gs500f. It worked fine for about 2 months and then it would die in the middle of a ride and wouldn't start. I put a new battery in it and it worked for about a month. Then I went to start it one morning after it was sitting for maybe 2 days and it wouldn't start. Tried...

    okay. I just got this bike and the only trouble I have with it is a battery problem. When I got this bike the old owners told me they took it to a shop and the mechanics told them that it was a bad rectifier. The battery will charge and I can run it for a while but then usually after I shut it...

    I replaced a stator on a VT1100C2 Sabre and it charged for a couple hundred miles, and then the battery died. I just tested it again and is showing continuity between all 3 leads and ground, just like the one I replaced. I don't know what it is but something is burning these up in my bike. I...
