    check voltage at battery while motor running should be no more than 14.5 volts (should be like 13,5 or so)
    check battery connection could be poor
    might have bad cell in battery

    later cd

    i was thinking that it could be the rectifier letting the stator over charge that battery. after i put a meter to check voltage ill know more.

    what ended up being the problem? I have a gp1200 1998, just put in a new stator and starter, now when you try to start it there is a white smoke coming from the positive battery cable, and I'm getting nothing like im trying to start it without a battery...NOTHING. Any ideas? Also the battery is only about 3-4months old and has very little use and a full charge. tried with different battery and got same result.

    Sounds like you starter cable is directly shorted to ground somewhere. Be careful, that cable could get pretty hot fast and start on fire.
