Default How to know if regulator or stator is bad

2006 CBr 1000rr, When to start the bike, gauges all lit up when key turned, hit the starter button then click, everything went dead. Checked all fuses, figured battery was shot but when i jump (cables to another batter) the bike it will start and run but as soon as i remove the cables its shuts right off and no power at all, how do i know what to replace??? Ive been told voltage regulator & possibly stator..

Sounds like the battery is no good.

Try a good battery and test the voltage while its running. Hopefully you have 13.5 to 14.5.

Check your voltages. The charging systems don't charge all that much at low rpms, if at all.

That works fine on a car, but not on a bike. If your battery is dead, the alternator is not enough to power everything.

Are you serious??? so if the battery is straight dead, and i jump the bike, the bike shouldnt stay running??? Ive never heard of that.. when i jumped it i tried it with & without the bike battery hooked to connectors, the same thing happened, as soon as i unplug the jumper batter the bike shuts off and no power at all
