Hello,
I have a K1 GSX-R1000 that i have been working on for weeks, it has some problems in charging system
So I bought a new battery, stator, and rectifier, replaced all of them
but bike still has electrical problems,

the problem now is it only starts with jump, battery charges 13.0 V - 14.7 V while the bike is on, but the lights aren't stable and when i turn on the HI head light it dies after a minute, then after it dies it still can't start without jump
so i don't know is it stator problem or rectifier or wtf is wrong with it.

i checked all fuses are good, renewed wires, charged the battery, renewed the old stator and tried it, but it still the same problem
and yeah i jump start it while car is off, i did it once while car is on so i don't know if it made some mistakes.

Thanks in advance

Sounds like you have multiple wiring problems, but you're not very specific: what's the voltage at the battery? When is it at 13V and when at 14.7V? Is that with the high beam on? If not, what is it with the high beam on? Why doesn't it start? Does it crank? If so, how's the cranking speed?

The voltage when i turn off light (i disconnected lo light fuse) is 14.0 - 14.3 V when on idle and i think thats good
But when i turn on HI beam it drops to like 13.0 - 13.3 V on idle
And I don't know why it doesn't start again,
Yes it cranks for like a second then stops, like when battery is discharged
And now the engine sound is weird i don't know what happened to it

It might be that the battery has just been worn out from troubleshooting the bike. What does it read with the engine off? Have you tried charging it via an external charger?

It might be something as trivial as a bad battery cable connection. Leave the voltmeter connected to the battery terminals while you go through the cranking & high beam ritual. That may tell you something. If the voltage is OK do the same thing but with the voltmeter connected to the battery cable terminals. You can go on like that to the starter solenoid terminals and to the starter itself.

Any chance that you have a HID high beam?
