hey guys new to the forum. but a tech for these bikes.

Hey guys I dont own a hawk but have a lil po dunk shop in charleston S.C. and it seams that the 96 hawk here in town have found me. I work on allot of these and REALLY like this motorcycle. I own kawi's but i like the amount of bike you get per $ in the hawk. We are ALWAYS working on these bikes so if you guys need any tech info let me know i will be glad to help if i can. Here are some upgades i have seen that have impressed me.
I dont like D&D but on the hawks there nice. saw one with high mount carbon canisters, sounded good!
LP lower cal. this thing completes the bike! def a must!
Corbin seats everyone has them so must be nice!
lighter wheels. WOW makes bike flickable like you wouldnt imagine!
Later folks
Randy

AH!! problem were seeing. if you wreck the rearsets are very labor intensive to replace vs other bikes.

hey i am having a problem with mine. i believe it is that stator. i can charge the battery and run it for a bit but the gauges give out and it the engine eventually cuts off. i bought a brand new battery and it still did it. there is a new voltage regulator rectifier on it. what do you think?

This is a comon bike problem. 1st swap the reg/rectifier out again if you can. YES people ship bad parts! 2nd step would be the stator. sucks i know but that is the next step.... There is a way to test but for those tools you really should stop by your local shop....
As a added tip clean the contacts for the rectifier plug. {Common R-6 problem.} when the rectifier goes it usually arc's in the plug making bad contacts.
Hope it helps
Randy

is there a way to take a voltage tester and put on the stator or maybe a couple wires before the stator to check it?

Welcome!
What Kaw do you ride? Back in the day I had the pleasure of ridding my dad's Kz900 that was nowhere near stock and was pulling near 100 ft/lbs of torque right off the line, so I just held on and grinned

Yes
If you have a manual on the bike it will tell you witch prongs to test for ac current going to the regulator and what volts it should be. i would start there. try searching the net for a pdf of your bike.

Thanks for the welcomes

I have a 636 and I use to race a zx10r currently building a zx14. My chick rides a gsxr750
