I was told that the bike should run off the alternator once started and since mine cuts off when you remove a battery lead I have a charging problem.

I've done the service manual checks and I believe my stator is working fine, almost positive my regulator rectifier is working fine and after studying the charging circuit I think the battery has to be in the loop for the bike to run. Can anybody confirm this?

If so, then I think I just have a bad battery and my charging system is fine.

Thanks for all the responses. Just wanted to update anybody interested. At the track I didn't have a multimeter so when we took off the battery leads while the bike was running and it cut off, we assumed it was the charging system. I've been able to check it since though and I can read a voltage of about 14.5 with the bike running, so the charging system is fine.
