Default Battery not charging!


I have a 1987 Honda VFR400 nc24. When ever I use my lights, indicators and back brake while the bike is stationary, the revs drop or the bike switches off. It seems that the battery is not been charged and therefore when I use these things, the power is been drained. Does anybody know what the problem might be?

Most likely a bad Regulator/Rectumfrier. Could be a bad Stator.

Sounds like someone could use a Manual. (yeah, I know it's a grey-market import, your local Honda Stealer don't have one, blah-blah-blah. He can get one, and it'll cost you about 4 Jacksons)
