    Not really sure how to test it without a Multimeter. If there's a Supercheap anywhere near you, you could stop in and see if they'd loan you one or buy one. I do know there's a big fully stocked supercheap in Alice Springs, but that could be 1000+km away from you (there's also a couple bike shops there). Maybe if you're real lucky and your near a Cattle Station they might have one you could ask to use. Probably the best you can do is inspect all the wiring for any damaged connectors or insulation and make sure everything is tight and pray the RR & Stator are good. I've seen failed RRs on Hondas that wiped out the battery when the failures happened the batteries were super hot and boiling the acid out of them (overcharging), the stator could also be the culprit (didn't charge the battery), but no way to know without doing some troubleshooting with a multimeter.

    Here's a comprehensive video on how to test a Regulator/Rectifier.

    check the stator:

    Looking on ebay I see a lot of inexpensive Chinese mosfet regulators.Do they hold up? Even if you bought two it's still cheaper than a OEM regulator.Anyone try one?

    Bit of a update
    Riding with multimeter hooked into a wired charge port
    13.1-13.2 v
    Idle 13.8-13.9
    Headlight hi beam on 13.04
    +Light bar 12.98v
    Stator unplugged and measured at the reg plug idle 25v above idle 60v
    Does this sound reg related or stator ?

    Is this with a new battery installed?

    Voltages seem pretty normal for a stock charging system with a good battery. I run about 1 volt higher then that since swapping to the Yam regulator and eliminating the stator harness plug above the engine. You might check that plug for melting or corrosion. Odds are you just had a battery die. Actual failures of stators/regulators on TE630 have been rare.

    Yes new battery with those readings
    The one that died was put in new in the morning did about 300km and about 7 starts then flat and not taking charge.
    Right now am sitting at 500km to get it checked or 700km the other way to where I want to be but no easy recovery if it dies.

    @WILL_S the wires that come of the stator are run too close to the exhaust. Check them for melted insulation. When they short out it will cause the battery to stop charging.

    How old was the battery before the one that was put in and died in one day? What symptoms did it show?

    1. Yes, I'd check the wires near the header.
    2. Check the stator wire plug above the engine.
    3. Check the plug at the regulator for signs of heat/corrosion.
    4. Look at every fuse.

    for correct recharging of the battery, about 13.8-14.5 volts are required at 4000 rpm with the lights on. otherwise the battery does not last long. monitors all electrical connections of the generator near the exhaust manifolds and the voltage regulator

    combine the yellow wires individually with a tin solder. then isolated with insulating tape. most likely your problem with insufficient charging voltage depends on what you see in your photos. This is the work done on mine 20180526_160738.jpg

    you should also check the passage of the yellow cables in the middle of the exhaust manifolds. this is a very hot spot and as the miles go by the cables burn. look for a new route for these yellow cables. below I put some photos of the work done on my TE 20170604_150441.jpg 20170604_150349.jpg 20170604_152832.jpg

    My stator wires have no issue at the headers .
    New plug on yellow wires small improvement.
    Second earth from reg back to battery ground small gain.
    Tried a ktm 990 reg and we got 14.5v
    Then ran second red wire from husky reg straight to battery and we get 14.6 .
    Looks voltage drop at a couple of points in the loom.

    my connector under the voltage regulator is in these conditions. the recharge values are regular. I will cut and sold new connectors IMG_20190802_163345.jpg

    and it took more of an effort than you might realize to make it happen.... you can thank Woodschick and Dirtdame

    Is there any aftermarket kickstand to fix the problem?
