97 GSXR 600 electrical issues

My rectifier went bad about 2 months ago, I replaced it with a used one. prior to that and still going on now my headlight dims a little bit with acceleration or whenever I press my brakes. If the symptoms that I am observing is like a car my altenator is going bad... meaning my stator is going bad? Just need some confirmation. Can I test my stator, the same way you can test an altenator by removing battery cable while the engine is running? Any suggestions will be greatfull...

i don't think that will work with a bike. but you should be able to test it with a digital volt meter. i would recommend obtaining a service manaul, it should give you direction on testing it. you can test it for shorts, grounds, and be able to check the voltage(ac) output of the stator.

good luck.

I agree. Get a digital voltmeter and manual. It could be the wires, connections, rectifier, regulator, stator, battery, or the moon may be in the wrong phase. Using a $20 voltmeter and directions in the repair manual, you can easily find out exactly what the problem is without wasting tons of money and time.
