I have been riding my S440 to work several days a week and it seems to be running out of charge in the battery. Its a brand new battery so I dont think thats the problem. I charge my battery at night ride the bike to work then home and thats usually about it. After that it has trouble starting again. I know how to check a cars alternator but I am completely ignorant about motorcycle electrical so I need some guidance to see why it keeps dying on me. The EFI troubleshooting manual is downloadable on this webiste on the homepage under manuals. I believe it will tell you everything you need to know! A popular upgrade for the commuters is to swap the stator and regulator for the ATV versions, which offer more charging to the battery. Another thing you can do is switch to an LED taillight (see my writeup finally finished for mine) and use a Battery Tender Jr. at night. The Tender has helped me a lot lately because mornings are about 45 degrees, and the batteries like to give up quick!,,,

Hey Bill try this if you think it's your security system causing the problem. Or maybe you already have but anyways lock all the doors then use the door key not the key fob if you have one. But anyways put your key in the drivers side door lock and manually unlock the door. Most modern vehicles this will reset and disarm the security system. But I would really have the fuel system check

you should always have the charging system checked before replacing components.the alternator may have been the original problem or something else in the charging system.however if it was the original battery it was probably due to be changed anyways.the problem with the seat is you may have a short in the seat heater system,possibly relay,switch,or a wiring problem in this circuit.

Hard to turn the power steering wheel

If it is hard to turn the steering wheel the first thing to start doing is to check and make sure that you have fluid in the system. The next point is to see if there are any leaks in the system. After that you want to check the color of it. If it is not clear and starting to look like used oil then there could be a good possibility that it is clogged somewhere. If you know how to change the fluids then i would do that anyways but if not go ahead and send it to a shop and they will be able to clean it out and replace it for you. This should be done anyways between 40-50k miles to keep everything running smooth. Hope this helps you out!

Have a good one!

My windows movie maker was corrupted... how can i fix this problem?

First try running (start-run) "sfc \scannow" and let us know if that fixes it, SFC stands for System File Checker and you can ask it to fix problems that it finds although I think it does that automatically anyway. Hopefully its just a problem with a system file and sfc will fix it for you, otherwise check back with us and we try again :)

Sounds like system does not recognize the key. Have system scanned to be sure as this could also be a intermittent starter issue.Most pass-lock systems can learn up to 10 keys,( try another key if you have one). Hope this helps!
