my 99 gsxr-750 has charging problems
Basically what happened is that I tried starting my bike and it acted like the battery was dead. I decided to try to jump start it by connecting it to a car (the car was off). it started ok, but when we disconnected the jumper cables my bike died. Figuring the charging system was probably broken since I didn't do anything else that might have caused the battery to drain, I tried letting the battery sit connected to the car battery for a few minutes. it gave me enough charge to get to a bike shop.
they told me I need a new battery, stator and regulator. and wanted to charge me a ridiculous amount, so I got the battery, had them charge it, and was able to ride back to my apartment.
I did a load test and it didn't look like any voltage was going to the battery at 5000 rpm. The shop said the alternator wasn't outputting anything too, so I believe that the stator needs to be replaced. but how can I tell if I need to replace the rectifier too?
tldr; I am pretty sure I need a new stator for my bike. How can I tell if I need a new rectifier? is it true that if the stator goes bad then the rectifier goes bad too?
