Hi,

Initially, a couple of possibilities that you can check/explore:

  • starting relay (most likely);
  • start switch;
  • starter motor;
  • loose wiring, connector, terminal; and others that could not be discounted
  • insufficiently charged or weak battery;
  • neutral sensor/switch/light;
  • sidestand switch/sensor;
  • alarm/security system.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My VTR 250 2003 won't start. The lights are all working when I turn it on but when I go to start it it turns over for a second then it's dead. whats up with that? Battery perhaps?


Very much sounds as though the battery is run down. In such a case you will se symptoms exactly as you are describing them, lights work but only cranks once. If you continue to try and start it, the bike will likely eventually die. It may be possible to push start your bike but your first destination after that should be a battery shop which will perform a free diagnostic of you electric system to make sure it's just the battery or if perhaps your alternator is failing to charge.

Cheers.

Starter


could be the wires need cleaning or new ends.or low battery power. check battery for 12 or 13 volts.if good on volts disconnect starter wire(dissconnect battery first) then hook up dc volt meter to starter hot wire and a ground at the battery.watch volt meter when u press the start button,do you still read more than 12 volts. if not replace solenoid.

1998 honda vtr firestorm starting problem


Hi Samantha!

Yepp, i know whats wrong. Its the generator on your bike that dosent work properly. The generator dosen charge your battery. So when your drive the engine, the lights, the flash etc take all the power of the battyre and since the genarator coulden charge it properly it dies.
Buy a new, or if you can find a used, generator and replace it, alternative take the generator to someone that can pull it appart and replace the coals in it. Sometimes thats more expensive to change the coals then it is to buy a used one.

Good luck with your bike

Honda VTR 1000 Low fuel sensor problem


Hi,

On most bikes, the fuel level sensor is inside the tank and basically is a dampened float. The entire assembly could be accessed beneath the tank and would be connected by a single connector with two terminals. This pair of wire would then go to the instrumentation/cluster to trigger the fuel level gauge or in your case low level sensor. Often the connector would become loose or the terminals corroded. The sensor inside the tank could be tested with a continuity tester (DVM/VOM)

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
