Question about 2004 Honda Valkyrie Rune
Starter works fine, and I've ruled out all the related switches, i.e. kill switch, starter switch, kickstantd switch.
Checked all fuses and wiring connections
There are 3 seperate coils to the bike so I've ruled those out, just for now, because I just can't see them all failing at once.
I replace the brushes on and cleaned up the altenator.
I also tried purchasing a new ignition module, Dynatek 3000, and it has not made a difference. Although, on the Dynatek, I'm not getting the start up LED flash that I'm supposed to be getting when I first turn the ignition on. ( I'm thinking the issue may some how tied to the ICS but not sure. I guess the unit could be bad but it is a replacement......Dynatek has no info for me yet).
Another thing I have noticed is that my battery voltage may be a volt low, 12.2 Volts verses the 13 plus a specified in the manual. This seems like a stretch though. ( Just an FYI on this, the voltage being fed the Dynatech, when the ignition is on, is 2.3 volts. I'm not sure what it is sopposed to be?? I gues if it's not enough it could be of some type of impact, I'm just not up to speed on these type of issues).
Based on this, have you checked the ignition switch? these have multiple output wires on some bikes, and sometimes just one may fail, allowing the appearance of things lighting up, but no ignition. far as the voltage comment, you will never have over 12 volts until it is running (alternator must be turning). the 2.3 volts doesnt sound right though, but i cant be certain without study of the diagram. i would call that a clue. maybe it will help.
