Check for grounding issues, make sure no unnecessary wires are frayed or grounded to frame such as power wires and the like.

SOURCE: no juice in bike with new battery

Hi I am Vortash common fault with this model bike was the ignition switch a quick test is put a meter across the the battery .. you should read 12 -13volts if the voltage drops when the ignition is switched it's usually is ok but not allways it is just a quick check sometimes it is intermittent now see how far the voltage drops if it is considerable chances are you have a short .. usually the rectifier or the starter feel the battery see if it is getting warm with the ignition on this will also indicate a short .. check for bad earth connections particarly from the battery to the frame.. Check all fuses in this country there was one on the main lead from the battery .. hope this helps regards Vortash

SOURCE: bike will not start or stay running on a full

sounds like the problem is your battery is not charging when you are riding. The most common cause is a faulty regulator / rectifier. Contact a motorcycle wreckers for these parts, or your yamaha dealer.
Easy way to test is, when your bike is running, and the lights start to dim, before the bike shuts down, using a volt meter, test the voltage at the battery terminals, should be about 14V. If faulty rectifier,no charge going in to your battery, then the reading will be low, about only a few volts. If you dont have a volt meter, then any mechanic shop can do this test for you. best to have this done before buying any parts.

I found petrol in the crankcase of my '95 Yamaha fzr 600 (3litres) which had drained from the tank after a period standing. The question is in the absence of an in-line shut-off valve & as it has


I am not familiar with this motorcycle. I have not seen a majority of motorcycles manufactured. Those I am familiar with all had a way to turn off the fuel just below the tank. I suggest you ask this question at your local Yamaha parts desk. You will be doing me a service if you post the reply on this question. Thank you.

You need new battery for sure.When you install the new battery, check it with a volt meter (D.C.) that it charges at 14V +/- 0.5V at idle with your high beam on. If it doesn't, you need a regulator/rectifier as well.

I have a 2000 Ford Focus. One week ago the battery light came on and stayed on for two days when the voltage drained and left me stranded on the side of the road. I took the alternator to a rebuild shop...


Sounds like the alternator is still not making the correct voltage to charge the fully. The battery light comes on when the alternator doesn't make enough voltage to charge it. Your alternator might still be charging, but not putting out required voltage. I would have your alternator & battery tested. Hope this helps you.

It seems like something is draining the batery. For a battery to go dead on you like that there must be something draining the battery while the vehicle is switched off. It could be something like a short across some circuit. The first and easiest test is charge the battery and then to disconnect the battery negative cable whenever you park the vehicle overnight etc. and see if the battery still runs down.
As a more positive step is to disconnect the positive lead from the battery and wire a bulb like a tail light bulb, between the terminal and the removed lead. The bulb should light up. Make sure that everything on the vehicle is switched off, the bulb should still be lit. Remove and replace the fuses one by one until the bulb goes out. That is the circuit that is running your battery flat. Check all the components on that circuit until you get the light to stay out and your problem should be fixed.
Check your charging system. With the engine running at about 4000 rpm, a volt meter across the battery terminals should read around 14 to 14.5 volts and drop to about 13.8 volts with the engine at idle. If this does not happen, the charging system may be defective. Even with lights on the voltage should climb, but will drop lower at idle.

Headlights and speedometer dim and flicker on 2001 Yamaha VStar 1100 custom? Thinking it is the battery (about 1-1 1/2 years old) not sure though?


Sounds like you need a new battery or to clean connections. Bike is not getting enough juice causing dimness and flickering. Hope this helps.

Just bought 1989 fzr 600 wont start been told battery drains when running.spark is orange,on test help


Hi, Paulheywood3 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Severely discharged or damaged battery, you need 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
8. 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.
9. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
10.. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
11. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC,or BAS).
12. Faulty neutral, clutch lever, or kickstand safety switch.
13. Faulty fuel pump fuse or relay.
14. Security alarm needs a reset.
