Bike won't start - 2004 Fatboy.

I have a 2004 Fatboy, and the bike won't start. Last ime I rode was mid to late October. The lights come on and there seems to be fuel going to the injectors, but it simply does not want to click over.

Any assitance would be great.

Why does the 30 amp circuit breaker behind the battery box on my 1990 fatboy click once when i push the ignition button? The bike won't start.


Try to reset the circuit breaker. also check for an earth fault on the starter motor .If this is not a circuit breaker and is a relay, you should make sure everything is ready for a start, (ie : in neutral, sidestand up and clutch in and that the battery is charged.) the neutral light being "on" doesn't mean it is in neutral. I hope this helps.

I rode the bike with oil light on then the bike died and won't start now


I will assume bike is a 2 stroke and say you seized the piston in the bore. when cooled it may still turn over but the damage has been done internally. It will probably require a rebore and oversize piston.

I have a 1999 Suzuki Marauder VZ800. Lately I have been having problems with the battery. Before you say go buy a new one, the battery will be fine for a while, but then it won't be able to turn the bike...


it sound like you may have a alternator discharge problem . Charge the battery take it for a ride when you get back try starting the bike if it starts fine disconect the battery over night then hook it back up the next day if it starts fine their is a draw from something. if it doesn't start you have a bad plate in side the battery discharging it 9replace the battery) if the bike doesn't start after your test ride the the alternator has gone bad or is not hooked up correctly.

Because of extensive travel, my bike has been basically sitting for the last two years. I just put in a new battery in it and the first time I rode it it rode great. Now the warning light (don't know...


The indicator icon or light you are seeing is most likely the "check engine" light, and if viewed closely looks like a tiny engine. A review of the owners manual might be helpful. Fuel that is two years old is not going to combust/burn properly. I'd start with draining the fuel tank and putting fresh gas in the bike. If you installed the new battery yourself double check the terminal connections and look where the negative cable ends on the vehicles frame. Many electrical malfuctions can be traced to bad "grounds"or loose connections.(the bouncing on the seat). Take some time to look carefully around. The vehicle's ECM (Engine Control Module) is capable of storing one or more "trouble codes".

Fob on 2004 fatboy


The FOB is a security device that will help protect your bike. If it is far enough away (i think 20 feet) your bike will not start, Without the FOB the fuel pump will not run and the lights will flash on and off. When you come back to the bike with the FOB the bike will run normaly. So do not leave it with the bike unless you want it gone when you come back.

Charging problem


stopped for lunch back on bike it started fine. About 20km later I heard the engine revs on my speakers running autocom of the bike the speedometer started going mad jumping from 30km/h to 220km/m, all over the place. The last time this happened was in France and the bike did not start again, battery was flat, bike shipped back to Ireland. Back in Ireland the dealer kept it for few days, battery was fine just needed to be charged, could find no other problem with the bike. While this time I rode straight to the dealer, about 20km away. When I stopped the bike was dead, no power. They did a test and said the regulator is faulty. Was waiting for new one from Aprilia but it did not arrive today so they took one from a new bike. The bike is charging when reved but does not want to charge at idle so they need to go fishing for the fault. It now also seem my clocks are broken as a result of al of this. ,Check to make sure that all of the chassis grounds are free of corrosion and properly connected. I have never had an issue with charging at temperatures ranging from below zero into the mid/high thirties (Celcius). Even at low speed you will be turning 3000-4000 RPM which should have the charging voltage between 14-14.5 V. Put a multi meter on it and see what voltages you are getting at different RPM's,,,
