YOU NEED TO TRICKLE CHARGE THAT BATTERY TILL FULLY CHARGED AT A RATE OF 1 TO 2 AMPERS IF THE BATTERY WONT HOLD THE CHARGE YOU WILL NEED A NEW BATTERY THE NEW BATTERY WILL NEED TRICKLE CHARGING AT THE SAME AMPER RATING FOR AT LEAST 16 HOURS THE REASON WHY YOUR LIGHT WHENT OUT IS NOT ENOUGH POWER TO SUPPORT EVERY THING FROM THE BATTERY

Bike wont start, something with the Battery circuit or battery, we can push start the bike so the bike does run, I charged the battery and had the battery tested and it tests out fine, when I put in bike...


From your description, it sounds like a bad starter motor. That is provided all of the cables going from battery to relay, and relay to starter are not corroded or have poor connections. The relay is a weak point, so it may be damaged as well if the starter has been pulling too many amps.

2002 600r won't turn over


I dont know a lot about newer motorcylces but I can try to narrow it down for you with my knowledge of motors in general.

First off unless it has a kick start, it wont start on a dead battery, if the battery died while trying to start it, it is possible that the battery was too weak to do so and may need replaced. Try putting it on a trickle charger and having it tested to make sure it isn't just bad.

from there check your spark, hows the plug? coil? no spark = no start.
still nothing? check fuel, start with the filter, or if the plug was wet when you checked it that SHOULD mean its getting gas. if you have spark and you think your getting gas or cant tell, try using starting fluid (take off your air filter and spray it in the intake tube as you try to start it, if it fires up, runs for a few seconds then stops, there's a good chance its a fuel issue.
Just a few ideas for you to look into, I know cars but not bikes but the concept is basically the same. good luck, hope you can get it running again before the weather gets too cold to enjoy it !

I keep trying to get it to turn over but it keeps clicking and wont turn over. im thinking its the starter but it worked fine yesterday i had to jump it and it would turn over yesterday. i left it in the...


Most likely it is your battery. If it started when you jump started it then the battery was too weak, and it won't hold a charge, so when you park it overnigt it is not strong enough to start the bike. You may have loose or corroded cables and that can lead to a weak battery because it wasn't getting charged like it should. Unfortunatly when bike batteries get that weak they usually need replaced. Unlike a car battery they can't take the punishment of improper charging.

My garage got very cold during the month of December and my bike does not want to start now. It had started but it turned off and smells like it is flooded. What could be the problem?


Bike should be fuel injected so very hard to flood. Most likely battery was weak from cold and couldn't turn over and spark enough to start. Try charging battery for a few hours, beware of sparks if you smell gas. Hook charger up then turn on.

Motorcycle wont start


If cranking is slow it could be a sign of a 'near to dead' battery.
When cranking on its battery there is a too low voltage and weak or no sparking.
When jump starting or pushing the bike, there is a good spark and the engines fires up.

Check also the spark plugs! And carburettors cleaniness

Starting problem


Sounds like you might have cooked the battery. Try with a new one, start the bike and see how it runs. Hopefully you didnt fry anything else.
