Hi, i have a 2016 r6 and been having problems. I have put 2 stators in it. If this one fails dose anybody know the issue? When i take tge cover off over a court of oil comes out, thats seems a lil much rigth?
The point of this post, is to aid in quickly identifying why an alternator may not be charging. Basically we will test to confirm that the alternator is...
My overall voltage drop between the engine/alternator and battery was excessive.
This caused the alternator to run full-field the entire time the engine ran.
So the alternators were running SSSUUUPPPEEERRR hot, as they weren't designed to run full-field for extended periods... which BTW is why you don't run on a bad battery.
One of the alternators had scorch marks. Replacing the regulator wouldn't have had an impact... the core windings or/and their soldered connections themselves were damaged.
Voltage drop testing requires a loaded circuit, and the best results are acquired when the circuit is fully loaded. Unfortunately in the short time it takes to do the testing, you could burn out another stator. (some aren't very good quality)
Make sure your battery is good. Take a look at your connectors. Voltage drop test all of your connections - engine to regulator - engine to battery - regulator to battery. Test your negative side (because bad grounds are really bad) and then see about your positive side.
It's not uncommon for the regulator connectors to corrode on the older bikes.
