sitting is the worst thing for a bike. you have a bad battery. if you have to leave the bike for a long time, put it on a battery tender or at least start it up once a week. the gas will go bad in the fuel system and the battery will fail. also, when you get a battery, make sure to get a good one from the dealer, dont get the cheap ones from walmart or autozone. a factory battery will last 2-5 years. you will be lucky to get 1 year from a cheap battery.
if the headlight dies right out when you crank the motor then the battery is usually dead. It may read on a voltmeter that it has 12 volts but that does not necessarily mean the battery is charged.Have the battery checked and charged properly then try and start the bike again.Regards
All you should have to do is remove the seat (lift the lever on the back right side of the seat and slide it off toward the back of the ATV). There should be a "pop off" cover behind the battery - Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the "button" tabs and then remove the cover. You can now remove the battery hold down strap and remove the battery.
1) Make sure the ignition switch is OFF 2) Remove the seat 3) Remove the rear fender lid by removing the clips 4) Release the rings and remove the rubber band 5) Disconnect the negative terminal lead from the battery first, then remove the positive terminal lead 6) Remove the battery 7) Clean the batter box before replacing with the new battery
Could be a bad regulator/rectifier. You need to check to see what the charging system is putting out at idle, and probably 6-7K RPM's. If you have anything above 14V, you most likely have a reg/rec problem. If not, look for a short in the wiring somewhere.
i could not find a schematic of a 96 cbr400rr, so guessing this bike is not from the USA. however, there should be a master fuse near the battery on the positive side mounted to the battery box somewhere. i would check this fuse first to see if its burned out.
also, is battery fully charged? might have to top charge the battery to get good juice if its old (>3 years) and been sitting for a bit.
what we need to do is find out if your stator isnt working or if your regulator is bad
you need a volt meter on the ac scale and check across the battery with the engine off and with the engine running and with it running and with the lights on
let me know what you have for readings
