Common Technical Issues: SUZUKI GS500F

BRAND: SUZUKI
MODEL: GS500F
YEARS: 01-03
CATEGORY: MOTORCYCLE

TECHNICAL ISSUE DETAILS
Suzukis GS500 models all have a permanent magnet battery charging system, consisting of a stator with three output wires, which feed into a regulator/rectifier. This unit rectifies the AC into DC and regulates this DC to 14.5V to ensure proper battery charging. The output from the regulator/rectifier connects to the battery through a main fuse. Common faults in this system: 1) Regulator/rectifier failure. The OEM regulator/rectifier is a commonly failing part. 2) Stator failure. The stator fails regularly. Causes are age, heat and vibration. Test and replace when it tests bad. We recommend using the fault finding chart. This guide will help you diagnose the charging system quickly. Note: Suzuki GS models use three different wire colors for the output leads from the stator. As the output from these wires is identical it does not matter how the stator is hooked up to the regulator/rectifier (Suzuki caused a lot of confusion doing this over the years). Our replacement stator has THREE YELLOW WIRES, and so does our replacement regulator/rectifier.
