Lake of power

I need some help.... I put a new battery and without charging it i went for a ride. When I pulled into the gas station to fill up I cut her off and that was the last I saw of any power. I tried to jump it and got nothing. I charged the battery and still get nothing. I'm at a loss. If anyone has any clue as to what I might have done or what I can do to fix it

Please let me know. ThanksCheck your connections to your fuses and to your grounds. Assuming you are connecting the jumpers up to the battery terminals and you charged your battery back up I can only assume that you have power at the battery. And if you checked your fuses and they are good, then it must be a problem either: 1. between the positive battery terminal and the fuses. 2. between the negative battery terminal and your ground(normally a bolt on the frame). 3. between the fuses and every component on your bike(which could be your ignition switch failing, but unlikely). These connections often fail because of either loose connections or corrosion. So just a quick inspection of each connection can shed a lot of light on the problem. ,,,

Battery issues????


I would recommend having the battery tested to see if you don't have a dead cell or something. Also, if you filled the battery with distilled water, it is not a gel cell, or a maintenance free battery. The life of these "maintenance" batteries are typically 1 year, and would be best to replace every season. Furthermore, to extend the life of your battery, I strongly suggest getting a BATTERY MAINTAINER from either your local parts store, harbor freight tools, or motorcycle shop. These are not very expensive, and usually run about $40.00-$60.00. Much cheaper than replacing batteries all the time. I have a gel-cell that I run in my 1989 Yamaha Virago, and using the maintainer, it's going on the 3rd year in the bike. My battery stays so hot, that I can jump other bikes with ease. Hope this helps.

Bike died during poker run


I would eliminate the possibility of bad gas first, considering you had just filled up. Move on to the other possibilities after eliminating the simple ones first. Battery, spark plugs, plug wires, other ignition problem, fuel delivery problem.

Battery will not keep a charge.


Get a 2 amp charger and charge the battery fo 3 hours or so. While the battery is charging,check the fuses and check the wiring harness connections between the flywheel and the battery.

Start the bike and rev it up. Use a DC voltmeter to check the battery voltage while running. The voltmeter should read 14+ volts. If not then there may be a problem with the stator.

Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

Power issue


Check your connections to your fuses and to your grounds. Assuming you are connecting the jumpers up to the battery terminals, and you charged your battery back up, I can only assume that you have power at the battery. And if you checked your fuses and they are good, then it must be a problem either: 1. between the positive battery terminal and the fuses 2. between the negative battery terminal and your ground(normally a bolt on the frame) 3. between the fuses and every component on your bike(which could be your ignition switch failing, but unlikely) These connections often fail because of either loose connections or corrosion.

Bad battery


Don't rely on on whether the bike will start at a gas station to determine if the charging system is working. Get the multimeter out and do a proper test. Should be getting about 14.5 volts @ around 3K RPM. It's too easy of a test to to just skip. If it is charging then start looking for something else. Was the new battery properly charged to begin with? Loose battery connection? I suppose the GPS could be too much but you said that it was dying last november, so I would suspect something else. P.S. you need a properly charged battery to get an accurate reading for the charging test.
