I have an 86 zuk intruder 700 with 8000 mi on it, new battery but lately hasn't been starting for me. It is draining itself dwn to 10 volts lights still wrk but again won't start. Im thinking its an alternater issue but I was wondering if there could be any other possabilitys. Any advice would be greatly appreciated including location of the alternator. I've put 1200 k on it this season and it started and ran like a top why all of a sudden...

It could be the stator or the regulator/rectifier, or something as simple as a bad ground.

Testing with a multimeter will help track down the issue. Start at the battery and work forward through the charging system. When testing the regulator, a diode function on the multimeter will help a lot.

There are some threads here on charging system diagnosis, use the search.

charging issue on Suzzy

Check battery voltage with engine off, and then with engine running at a high idle.
You may want to peruse the Intruder Alert site, for other ideas.
