Check all battery connections. Also the negative connections on the frame and motor. All must be clean and tight. Also test alternator output at the battery terminals. Should be 14.5 volts. If it's not test it at alternator. If not at alternator replace the new alternator. If you do have it at new alternator but not at battery you have a connection problems somewhere. If you have it at both you might have a parasitic draw condition.
