SOURCE: 1998 Honda CB750 battery dead sometimes for no apparent reason

sounds like a bad charging stator circuit.  May be a bad rectifier or voltage regulator.  You need a multimeter to check each component.  It also simply could be a bad battery.

SOURCE: burgman 250 will not start

Ck fuses and wire connections first. If no problem seen, get bike running and disconnect the ground cable @ battery. If bike dies the problem generally is in the stator or regulator assembly not keeping battery charged. Bike will run untill the battery is too low to keep the ignition system energized and the bike will die. If it continues running w/the ground disconnected, the battery could have a dead cell which will drain the battery in a very short time whether it is running or not.

SOURCE: i have a 05 gsxr 750, replaced battery, now no start.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, try starting with the clutch lever pulled in and / or the sidestand folded up.  Additionally, determine if there is a clicking sound.  If there is, then it would most likely be the starter solenoid.

Good luck and thank yu for asking FixYa.

I parked my Polaris 500 about a year ago just put new battery in started right up but doesn't go into foward or reverse


If it is stuck, try to rock it back and forth while attempting to shift. This has worked for me in the past. It sounds like oil wasn't replaced after going through mud / water before storing.

It seems to me that you may have a battery that is ready for retirement. I'd suggest putting a new battery in it first of all.

ATV will not start. no power to lights, starter.


make sure that your battery terminals are clean and are making good connection, sometimes when alot of mud builds up on my bikes battery it wont start also try to start it by the recoil is it has one or the kick start cuz when the battery is dead and you stuck in the trails you can start it by this and it should start

if this doesnt work let me no
