Check for a good ground from motor to frame and from frame to battery. And if battery is more than 1 - 2 years old (on a dirt bike) replace battery with a known good one. - if this does not fix it check the start switch for dirt and corrosion

When you try to start, does the batter voltage drop?
If not, then does the switch put current to the starter solenoid?
If it does, then check for current at the starter solenoid. It should at least click. If there is no current to the stater solenoid, then it is the switch. If the solenoid clicks, but there is no big drop in battery voltage, then it is the starter. You might be able to clean the brushes and commutator in order to bring it back to like.

2004 Honda CRF 230 F charging system


Hi, Johan before testing any electrical component in the Charging System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
2. To check the regulator unplug it from the stator. Take a test light and clip it to the negative terminal of the battery and then touch first one pin and then the other on the plug that goes to the regulator. If you get even the slightest amount of light from the test light the regulator is toast.
To do this with a meter: black lead to battery ground, red lead to each pin on the plug, start with the voltage scale higher than 12vdc and move voltage scale down in steps for each pin. Any voltage is a bad regulator.
3. On the other part of the disconnected regulator plug. Set the multimeter for Ohms x1 scale and measure for resistance across the pins of the stator. You should read something around 0.1 to 0.2 ohms for a 32 amp system.
4. Then check for continuity between each pin on the plug and frame/engine ground. The meter needle should not move (infinite resistance)(digitals will show infinite resistance) if the meter needle does move (indicating continuity)(digitals will show some resistance), recheck very carefully. If the meter still shows continuity to ground the stator is shorted (bad).
5. Set the meter to read A/C volts higher than 30 volts (the scale setting for voltage should always be higher than the highest voltage you expect or you may fry the meter). Start the bike, and measure from one pin to the other on the plug (DO NOT cross the multimeter probes! - touch them to each other). You should read roughly 16-20 vac per 1,000 rpm.
6. If the battery was good under load test, if the stator is NOT shorted to ground, and the stator is putting out A/C voltage, then the regulator is bad (most likely even if passed step 2)

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting/leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty pulse coil.
8. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
9. Faulty ignition switch.
10. Faulty run/off switch
11. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
12. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Charged battery on bike had funny smell now no life bike is a ccm crx230cc the same bike as a honda crf 230 have i blown the fuse or got a duff battery.


believe the battery may have failed. The burning smell would have been a cell inside of the battery failing. Some of these bikes run a 6 volt system and battery, and if you have hooked it up to a 12 volt charger, than the battery would not have handled the extra voltage and failed. Also a good chance the fuse has blown. Follow the red battery lead from the battery to the coil. somewhere along this wire should be the main ignition fuse.

Dirt bike quits running when slowing down.


I'd definately clean the gas tank out & blow the screen out with air. Replace or install a fuel filter,drain the carb(s) & remove the bowl to clean that. For the starter I'd take it off & clean it & the connections real good & try again. If that doesn't work get a test light & check if it gets power to the solenoid on top when trying to crank. If it lights & doesn't crank,you need a starter.
