    For clarification: I already have a corbin seat on the bike. Where is the battery located so I can charge it? Do I have to remove the seat? Thanks. Tom

How do I start the yamaha riva125cc w/electric start? Do I have to hold the gas or throttle. It's a '94.


Are you actually trying to start the bike with a battery charger switched on and connected to the battery. If so then you are at risk of blowing the whole electrics system battery and charger. Try removing the battery (undo negative lead first please) connect a dedicated motorcycle battery charger to it and allow the battery to reach full power. The charger should have an output of no more than 1 amp. Car chargers will wreck your battery DON'T USE THEM EVER. When the battery is fully charged refit it (positive lead first please) then try to start the bike. You cannot expect a battery charger to give enough cranking current to start a bike it is not designed to do it. NEVER USE A CHARGER WITH A JUMP START FUNCTION OR TRY TO JUMP START USING A CAR BATTERY LINKED TO YOUR BIKE. Both of these will fry your battery and possibly make it explode. Good luck

2008 yamaha R6 YZF: i have to use jumper cables everytime to start it everytime. i brought battery to be tested. they said battery was good, and recomended a charger. i purchased charger and charged over...


It sounds like the battery you are using doesn't supply enough power to start the bike. Using jumper cables starts the bike because of the additional power you are supplying it. Make sure you are using the correct battery. Check to see if there is a more powerful battery available for purchase.

You have many options.
-bring it to a dealership and have them charge / test it.
-buy a charger yourself and charge it.
-buy a trickle charger and charge it yourself.
-buy a brand new battery and not worry about it for a couple years

My tocco does not turn on att all , no life, i press the power button and nothing happens , no matter what i try the screen doesnt come up :(


It sounds like you may have a battery or charging problem.

If you use a home charger try using a car charger to see if your home charger has become defective. Same if you use a car charger - use a home charger.

If neither charger charges the phone:

1) Take the battery out of the phone.
2) Look on the battery and locate the connector(s) that provide power from the battery to your phone.
3) Take a pencil eraser and (gently) use it to clean these contacts.
4) Replace your battery and turn your phone on.

If this doesn't work, take your phone to your cellular provider's service center to have the battery checked.

Note: Battery's purchased on the retail market can cost up to $50.00. However, many batteries are sold on eBay for less than $7.00...

Hello, have a 2003 XL 1200 custom that wont start,what is happening when you kick it over and it starts clickin then starts to die away like battery going dead. cheers Jes


I think you hit the nail on the head, Jes. Sounds exactly like your battery is going dead. Just to make sure, take the battery out of your bike and take it to an automotive parts store. Have them test the battery. They'll usually do this free of charge. If your battery is over two years old, it's probably bad.

Now, if you purchase a new battery, get the highest CCA (cold cranking amps) battery you can get. Also, consider the purchase of a Battery Tender or a Smart Charger that will connect directly to your battery via a short pigtail. Do not use a regular automotive battery charger. Put the pigtail on your battery and when you get of the bike, plug the charger to the battery. This will increase your battery life tremendously.

Good Luck
Steve

Engine wont turn over at start


Hi, Do you have an alarm & Immobiliser fitted on your bike as these drain the battery on your bike very quickly? If so i would recommend removing your battery and fully charging it with a decent amp-age charger. If you have your garage attached to your house then i would definitely recommend purchasing a trickle charger and when not using your bike keep this plugged into the mains and you should not have this problem again. all motorbike shops sell these chargers If after this the battery goes flat again i would suggest purchasing a new battery. This is a common fault as most motorbikes sit in the garage through the winter months and if not kept on charge will deteriorate. Hope this helps.

How to start motorcycle? It's been sitting idle for the winter, and I believe the battery is dead, can I hook it up to a charger? And where is it located on the bike?


Battery location depends on the bike but usually they are under the seat area.

They battery can be charged, but select a decent charger for bike batteries. If the battery is dry (out of water/acid) the battery will most likely be NS. You can pry off the plates on the battery and top up with distilled water and try charging but I would just get a new one and charger at the same time. You can get trickle chargers, that you leave connected to the batt when not riding the bike and it flicks on then off to keep the battery topped up. I had my car on one for a year and it was fine.
