1985 Kawasaki Ninja 600r Stator Problem

Hey guys, so im new to this forum, just joined today. Just trying to figure out the problem to my bike. So here goes.

I was riding the bike to school one day and noticed the lights were going dim and then going back to normal, i have a built in voltmeter on the bike, so i checked the voltage and it read 10-11v. So i was like, hmm, that doesnt seem right. I rode it for a little while longer, and then the lights stayed dim and i noticed the voltage was at 8-9v, i came to a light and the bike stalled. I couldnt get the bike to turn over anymore. The battery was dead. So i replaced the battery just the other day, had 12.8v before start up. It took me FOREVER to get the bike started. Literally had to jump it with a car WITH THE NEW BATTERY, to get it to start. Finally got it warmed up and running, on the new battery alone, and the voltage read 10-11v running. I then reved up the engine to about 3-4k and the voltage did not increase. So i checked the stator yesterday, and after probing it, i had about 30-40ohms resistance at the plug with the bike off. Now i havent checked for AC voltage yet, because i cant seem to get the bike started. It had problems starting when it never did. I have been told that the stator is the problem. But before i go throwing a couple hundred dollars worth of parts at something, i would like to know for sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Guys! I am a Service Technician for General Motors. So i do have a very good understanding about electrical and motors, just not too much with motorcycles!

By the way it sounds its either your stator or the regulator/rectifier check to see if there is resistance to ground from the stator first then check the A/C voltage output. I would have to look at my service manual to know the exact specs.

hi
Here is the serious advice. Sometimes there is a need to brush up the cords adjoing the stator. This will give you instant result if your stator coil in not burnt out. If there is a burn out you need to replace it. But try to brush up the cords...
Good Luck!!
