Question about Motorcycles
I have a good battery but the bike isn't getting any power when i turn the key on
Definatly check all the fuses. If they are ok check all the connestion blocks between the battery and the ignititio. If that dosent work check you have a solid connection for th negative. If all them are ok then it can only be the ignitition system or the battery

At first glance sounds like the battery is bad. The voltage you read across a battery with no load is not a good way to test. Batteries should always be load tested. Also if you still have the original battery from a 2003 bike you definitely need to replace it.

Your battery MOST LIKELY has lost some of the battery cells, which will cause it to get a partial charge which will show it as a FULL charge when in fact it isn't getting a full charge. You should try taking it to get the battery tested and they can tell you if it needs to be replaced. I would guess they are going to replace it for you. A new battery should run around $90 for a motorcycle. Let me know if this helps you out. Jeff from fixya

SOURCE: My bike isn't getting fire
you need to multi meter test for resistance (OHMS) your dealer bike shop or service manual should have the expected range readings and should give reasonable idea how to test each stator or the coil or ignition coil - I have no idea what your bike is to offer any more specific but this is broadly speaking how you test the electrical side of ignition
pretty much any multi meter with OHMS setting will give you enough info on a fault as when you test it will be way out of spec range if is at fault for instance I just tested my own bikes stator and one of the readings was meant to be within 700 - 1050 range and the reading I got was 10 so accuracy of meter not to important when looking for faults if it is faulty it will show up easily
when you say spark plug is good do you mean you know plug is new or the plug is sparking well when you kick over or try to start bike with plug out of motor ?
maybe write back if you like with info such as what bike are we talking about and is the plug sparking at all etc
good luck regards Jamie
