Don't underestimate the power (lack) of a bad battery! Internal shorting can cause this too.

Thanks for all e help fellas. I'm not mechanically inclined to "operate" e bike so for now i'll leave it to e mechanic BUT i'll have e old alternator back and get someone (who knows it) to inspect further n maybe if it's reusable like what most of u have mentioned,i'll just replace what is needed and keep it as a spare. This is my 1st R1150GS and there's a lot i gotta learn. Ain't nothing like e Japanese bikes that i know of. Sold my Tiger800 for this 11 years old baby and never once regret it :)

Battery Voltage

Well Guys, looks like I got off easy, the #1 fuse was badly distorted and almost burnt. Replaced and all seems well. Thanks for your info.

The other part that might require replacement would be the regulator/rectifier. It is very unlikely that the stator windings have failed.

First things first...there is a chance that the drive belt has broken. It is easy to check so, I would go there first.

We're curious so, keep us informed of what you find.

Thank you.
You forgot slip rings

My belt was ok. Guess I'll let e mechanic do what he does best and I'll prolly work on e old alternator myself since I have all e nice people in here... I seriously have very little idea on how e alternator looks like. Will require more read ups and advices from u guys... Thanks for all e wonderful replies. Really appreciate it. Pardon me I'm still a newbie.
