Check the battery cables by removing them as they have been known to oxidied under the bolts. Check the negative side (ground) especially where the cable connects to frame again by removing the bolt and cleaning the frame and connection. The negative (ground) connection can also be connected to a bolt just above the starter motor. Check this as well.

Hi, Dwvalerio and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Air/fuel mixture screw improperly adjusted.
11. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Fuel tank empty.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.
16. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.
17. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
18. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.
19. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

I was driving my 2001 sukuie down thestree, it just died like you yurned the key off and it would not restart, hauled it home and now need to find the problem, it has pleanty of fuel.the lights in the...


wont CRANK or CRANKS Fast but will not start , which is it?
the fuses blew or the battery is dead (discharged)
battery voltage is 12.6vdc rested, if not and is lower, its discharged.

did warning lights come on before the STALL? (died is stall)
if yes, and the charge lamp came on, and was ignored this is normal
for the battery to die. with alternator dead.

try jumper cable starts yet? that be next after fuses. and battery volts. (no cranking)
if it cranks fast, still fuses. check. then check for spark if not a diesel. some GV have Diesels, (3 kinds too)

Siren works, but no power to instrument after recharging battery. Nothing changed on the bike, was just sitting all winter.


There should be a small fuse box near the battery with probably three fuses inside. Have you checked those?

Sparks from touching metal while disconnecting battery; now the bike won't start.


Have you tried disconnecting the battery again? (more carefully, please)

Here's a solution to the "sparking"... ALWAYS disconnect the Negative/Ground cable first. Once that's clear, then you can remove the Positive cable, if needed.

Removing the Negative cable is "safe", as even if you touch the wrench to the frame, that's its normal condition (voltage) anyway, so there's no danger. Once it's removed, there's no way to cause sparks, no matter if you touch the Positive cable to the frame or not... since the Negative is already disconnected. (does that make sense?)

Anyway, disconnect the Negative/Ground for 5 minutes, then reconnect it. If this is a fairly recent bike, it may have confused the ignition computer when you accidentally shorted the cable earlier. This should clear any errors... if that's the problem.

Sometimes it may take more than 5 minutes to clear, that's just the "general rule of thumb". If 5 minutes isn't enough, try 15 minutes or more.

There is a slight possibility of damage to the computer (if there is one) by what you did earlier... let's hope that's not the case!

Sometimes while riding the bike, it stalls after driving for sometime and then experienced hard start until it won't start again. Had battery checked and it was drained. Replaced with a new battery but...


Hi Anonymous, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for drop in aprerage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at "BOTH" ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v while cranking replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor.

Make sure your battery cables are tight at both ends. The ground connection on these bikes has a habit of vibrating loose.

Just changed battery. Rpms are lower than normal at idle. It's dying when stopped for any length of time.


All you can do is drive it tell it relearns, This is common when the car losses power. You could try clearing codes. This puts the Idle Air Control valve a a preset postition. Disconnecting the battery sets it at 0.
