some additional advice would be greatly appreciated......
i checked all my connections and all my wiring and everything looks good besides the fact that my stater is only pushing out 19 amps when at idle, is it supposed to be much higher? is it definently this or could this be caused by something else? i have already bought a new regulator rectafier and would like to avoid buying a new stater if that is not the problem

Can't you have the stator bench-checked at an alternator/starter repair shop? If so, I would do that first. Can it be rebuilt? Not sure on that one.

I am ready to dump this bike in the river and start from scratch. After close to a month of trying to figure out what was wrong with it I gave up and brought it to the shop to get diagnosed. They found that the "new" reg/rec was not pushing out enough power to charge the battery and decided that it was almost definitly a cheap, faulty part. Bought a new one and believed that I once again solved the problem but the same this happened again today; with it dying as I was riding and not having a charge on the battery. I saw a guy as I was broken down who told me he had the same problem with his 1994 cbr600 and the only fix he could find was to install a reg/rec that had an additional part built on that kept it from frying out. Is this a possible option or was this guy just pulling my chain, Otherwise what is wrong and what can I do?

I have never heard of an additional part that is conected to the regualtor? The system doesnt hav alot to it. Battery, stator, reg/rec?

Was the regulator brand new when you bought it? Or used? was you battery fully charged and good?

If it keeps blowing regulators it is possible that you have an intermittent short to ground or possibly an intermittent open. This causes the regulator to spike to max output constantly and can burn out a solid state regulator. Check the rotor and stator. I would very carefully inspect all the connections to and from the regulator, stator and anything else in the charging circuit. Wiggle wires while testing with an ohmmeter. Disconnect, clean with contact cleaner and reseat all connectors. Pull asnd reseat them several times while looking for corrosion. You can clean corrosion with a common pencil eraser.

Some Hondas do have regulator problems but usually regulators will last several years. There is probably something wrong that your mechanic missed.

It is possible that someone has an aftermarket regulator or modification to address this issue. You need to do some Googling and join some CBR sites to see if there is a common fix for this problem.
