Question about 1998 Suzuki RG 150 Gamma

1 Answer

Starting problem I put a 55 amp 12v battery charger/ jumpstart on my bike for about 5-10 mins and now it wont run right. What could I have done to it? The battery holds a charge and the bike tries to crank but wont run or will die out very easily. It ran perfect the day before and the reason the battery was dead was my fault, I left the lights on. Where do I start PLEASE HELP.

Sounds like you might have cooked the battery. Try with a new one, start the bike and see how it runs. Hopefully you didnt fry anything else.

How do i charge the battery on a 1992 honda shadow vlx 600c


First check the battery voltage using a multi-meter set to DC and volt range if reading is below 12V battery has probably one dead cell get a new one, if between 12v and 13V battery should be OK to charge. Remove battery undo negative lead first then positive. Please do not use a car charger or any other charging device that has an output greater that 1 Amp you will fry the battery. Charge the battery for as long as possible. Recheck volts across the battery if above 13V refit battery connect positive lead first then negative.
Start your engine, when warmed up check the voltage across the battery terminals it should be well above 13 volts. Increase the revs and watch the meter the voltage should increase to about 14.5 volts. This shows the battery is being charged. Please remember batteries on bikes only last a few years and short rides do not put enough charge in your battery. Buying and using a motorcycle Smart charger does help. I use a CTEK XS 0.8 12V Motorbike Battery Smart Charger & Conditioner. You get a small wiring harness that fits to the battery with a rubber connector that connects to the chargers plug. This unit will help to keep the charge in the battery topped up.

Motor blows fuse


there is a short in the system that is connected to that relay/fuse. Could also be melted wires if you tried to ever jump start it from a car, start position on a charger or jump start box. Jump starting a motorcycle should never be done. The gauge of wires on a motorcycle are much lighter than vehicles.
It is VERY rare but i have seen batteries that are reversed polarity. Check to make sure battery is 12v + when you test it. Not 12v -

This is a possibility. The header says you're working on a 1979 XLH 1000cc Sportster. This is not a 250cc bike and it takes a good battery to start and engine of this size. I've never seen a CCA rating on the battery requirement in a service manual but it does say that the battery should be capable of at least 32 Ahr.

Good Luck

Bike engine light came on shut bike down wont start battery level is 10.6. Everytime I try to start the bike I get a code 0005 raw or so I think that's a code anyway. Any ideas what's wrong oh I checked...


Battery needs to be over 12v for the bike to start, with the bike running it will be about 14v
if you charge the battery and it wont hold 12v----new battery
If the bike starts and doesnt show 14v aprox---- new regulator

My Ducati 750 Monster Battery is Dead. What kind ...


A smaller car 12v 4 or 5 amps charger will do the job, the slower the battery is charged the better, so use the lower setting if available.
charge it out of the bike, this way you can check the water level, and if it overflows it wont spray acid over your engine and frame.
If it doesnt start the bike after a charge, get a new battery, as running a sad battery can overload the charging electrics. and dont jump start it of a car battery that will accept more amps than the bike can produce

put a volt meter across the battery terminals, should read over 12v stopped and rise to 13.5v with the engine running.
If the voltage doesnt rise there is a problem with the charging circuit.
Be carefull starting from a car, as this can cause damage to the bikes electrics, as the bike tries to produce enough amps to charge up the car when the bike starts, and overcook electrics.

Bike stalls out in neutral and wont start back up while riding


It sounds like the battery may be bad in spite of Auto-Zone's pronouncement. The connectors to the battery may be bad enough to make a poor connection to the battery posts. Is the battery water level up to the line in each cell?
Re-jet one step bigger as the baffle removal will make it run lean.

1993 Kawasaki 750R - Charging issue - Weird!!!


i know this sounds silly ,but when you bought the battery had it been activated,new batterys are critical in their first charge and you cannot use a standare type automotve charger,if bought dry the battery needs to have the acid filled ,left to sit for at least 2 hours prior to charging,once it has sat for the 2 hrs with the acid in,the new battery will need to be charged with a "cteck"or similar type charger for at least 13 hrs before it can be put into normal service,what happened with yours i think is that sure you gave it a charge but it has only recieved a "surface charge"and will be usable for a very short time,it may recover for a brief period and go again untill the surface charge dissipates,(or in other words ..runs out of charge)best thing you can do with the battery is take it to a auto electrician and have the battery cycled and conditioned,this is not expensive to do and will give you piece of mind,after conditioning the battery shouldngive excellent service,i have the battery in my goldwing coditioned about every 12 months and i have the same battery that was in the bike when i bought the bike 8 years ago and still no electrical or battery problems(costs about $25 to get it done)once a year but that beats $280 for a new one...hope this helps

2003 Yamaha 650 Classic No power from the battery or a charger.


At 55 amps you could charge the batteries on the space shuttle. A 2 amp charger is plenty. You cooked the three year old battery so a new one will be needed. Get the new battery then worry about the fuses only if the bike is still dead. The fuses are under the battery side cover if I recall correctly. Look under the seat if not by the battery.

Please rate this solution as a " FixYa ". Thanks!
