SOURCE: Honda Shadow 600 c won't start in gear after battery change

The kickstand switch is either bad or bent out of position. See if you can activate the switch manually. Does the bike run now? If so, the switch is bent out of position. If it still won't run, jumper the wires together until you can replace the switch.

SOURCE: Hi,I just bought a 84 honda goldwing interstate.

The bike may be discharging the battery. you need to test stator output,voltage regulator,and the fuses. Does the battery need to be recharged to restart?

my 85 v45 magna was doing the same thing. I removed the solenoid & the battery cables. I cleaned both sides of all the connectors (even thought they appeared ok) I put it back together & now everything is fine. Good Luck!

Yamaha r6 2005 wont start.

Could do with more information maria6666.

Do the ignition lights come on when you turn the key? Battery connected/Charged
Has your red kill switch on the handlebar been knocked off?
Does the starter motor turn when you press the starter button? Battery connection/charge
Does the fuel pump relay click/or fuel pump make a whirring noise when the ignition is switched on? Battery connection prob/poor earth/fault on fuel pump relay
If when the starter button is pressed the it just clicks - battery needs charging.
Has it got enough fuel in it?
Is the fuel tap turned on?

I could go on but it would be easier if you could describe what happens when you try to start it.

Basically, it needs petrol to burn and electric to make the engine turn whilst making a spark to burn the petrol.

Have you any friends that could help you? Are you in a group of bikers/friends who you could ask?

Bike wont stay running

If the bikes charging system is not working there will be no power to the coils, and no spark (once the battery is drained). Try putting a good, fully charged battery in the bike and check the charging system.

There are certainly several things that could cause the symptoms you describe. Based on the information you have provided that is what I would check first.

2006 Aprilia RS125 doesnt start

Hi .... Try switching the petrol off just prior to stopping the engine and start up again with the petrol OFF. There's enough petrol in the carb to start the bike. A good battery should show over 12 volts. Take the plugs out and give them a good clean or replace them. Is there a petrul pump fitted ? A two stroke needs to be ridden quite hard to maintain efficeincy, higher revs etc ........ let us know how you get on ?
