Gilera dna 50 full battrie working every think as it shud battrie getting charged when going around now what the problem is when i turn normal lights on if turns clocks off and starts flating battr

Hello Alvin!

Had to do some research on your machine and hoped there is a "Users Group" where you could go for help. No joy. You are stuck with me...??

If your scooter has spent a lot of time outdoors, I'd be suspicious of corrosion in the electrical connections. I own an Italian machine myself ('87 Alfa) and ground connections have been troublesome.

Start with you battery connections, making sure they are clean and sound. In fact, remove both and check carefully inside the cable sheaths, where the wires can be damaged. Clean the terminals well before putting the cables back on.

Then start looking closely on the frame for ground attachments. Disconnect any you find and clean the frame attachment point and the wire connector. A light sanding should clean things up.

If things are still not right, start pulling each connector you can find and inspect for corrosion. Be careful, since old plastic can snap, so try to figure out how they come apart before overpowering them. Usually a "release" pin of some sort.

You have no doubt noticed by now I'm giving very general advice, since I've obviously never seen your Gilera. Frankly, many electrical gremlins in older machines are caused by corrosion and I suspect you may find this is your problem.

All the best.

New battery fitted started 4 days in a row left for two days then started then today battery is flat again started with leads went one mile up the road stopped bike and it would not start again battry...

It may need a regulator.
put a multi meter across the battery terminals
It should read 12v or a little more with the engine stopped.
When the engine is revved it should rise to around 14v, if it doesnt rise, it isnt charging

Will a faulty ignition switch stop the battary from charging.alternator,r/r,battary are all fine.Its a 955i triumph sprint st and the year is 1998

A guess. If you are running on "start" you might not be charging. But then, if you are running on "Start" I would suspect the starter would also be running. You didnt say this was the problem.

Is your battery going dead? Your alternator is putting out? Check the rectifier.

New battary wont stay charged

Poor wiring. CHeck the connections leading to the temperature gauge. If the battery won't stay charged it maybe a symptom of short circuit. Check the wirings, there maybe worn electricals making contact with the chassis. Worse case is the charging circuit is not working. (alternator, regulator)

1999 Ducati 996 Will not start

yes, it is either the ignition relay which also runs the fuel pump or the feul pump itself is either locked up or just has gone bad. you should charge your battary then try it again and that does not work you can try hitting the feul pump with a small hammer after you have removed it from the tank, this sometimes will get it going again. i've had brand new bikes just out of the crate need a shock to the fuel pump to get it going. it's a contact problem between the brushes and the commutator of the starter motor. something else to look at before toy take the pump assembly out of the tank is to varifey voltage at connector body of the fuel pump under the tank. find an electrical diagram to find out which wires send the voltage to the pump, if you have voltage there at key on then you will have to pull the pump out. hit it with a small hammer on the body of the pump motor and plug the assembly back into the bike and hold the pump upright over a small container to catch gas that may come and turn the key again. if it does not run you will have to buy a new pump.
