Does the positive on the triumph sprint connect to the neg on the battery


Hi, Kjd1948 not that I am aware of and I don't have the year of your bike but wiring diagrams on a 2002 Sprint show 1 black wire coming from the negative terminal and 2 brown wires coming from the positive terminal any other wires added were after the fact and could be color coded wrong but you would be blowing fuses or melting wires or draining the battery if a true positive source wire was hooked up to the negative post on the battery, trace the wire in question and see where it goes. Sorry, you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Triumph despair not, for a mere $0 you can download another one. For more information about your issue and free valuable downloads that you will need please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Yamaha r15 positive terminal and negative terminal have joined together ...and the power supply is stoped what is the fault


You have shorted out the battery and most likely melted the wiring. Check all wiring for signs of heat and replace, check all fuses and replace blown fuses. Recharge battery or replace, you are lucky it didn't go up in flames.

I changed the starter solenoid on my 01 cbr 929rr an when I put the new one on the harness under the fuse box started smoking , bike, lights , dashboard dosent light up nothing, what could it be


I will be working in the dark hear. I am assuming the solenoid
has 4 wires connected to it.
When you reconnected the wires you most likely installed
a wire on the wrong terminal, or the new solenoid is defective, and has a terminal shorted to ground. Read the remaining information and use the Ohm Meter to see if one of the terminals on the solenoid is shorted to ground. The solenoid will need to be mounted as when it was installed to test for a grounded terminal, or if you are proficient in using a Volt Ohm Meter you know there are other ways to check the solenoid without it being mounted.
Most likely it opened the main fuse. Look in the Fuse box and see if a fuse is open, don't replace the fuse at this point. Repair all the burned wires or damaged items created from the overheating. Remove all of the wires you attached to the new solenoid. Separate the wires where they do not touch each other or the vehicle. Using a Volt Ohm Meter place the negative meter lead to a good chassis ground. If the negative post of the Battery is handy hook it to the negative battery post. Check for around 13.7 volts on each wire you removed from the new solenoid. No voltage should be on the disconnected solenoid wires, Now using the Ohm Meter Setting, check each of the same wires for direct continuity to ground. You may have one wire that shows to be grounded. Use a wiring diagram to see if it is applied to ground. Should the wiring diagram show the wire not to be applied to ground, locate where the wire is shorted to ground. Use some viable information indicating what terminal
each wire should go to when reconnecting the wires. Connect one wire at a time to the solenoid making sure it is secured to the terminal and making good contact. Each time a wire connected, Use the ON/OFF Switch and trying to start the engine, hold the switch in the start position for 5 seconds while looking for smoke. If you see smoke release the switch and return the switch to the off position. And CRY. If the wires are reconnected correctly you will smile and not cry.

I need to install a cigarette lighter


Is it a Harley part? If so, the red wire or wire with red connector on it goes to the positive terminal of the battery. The other wire goes to the negative battery terminal. If it is an aftermarket part, or just has 2 wires, the wire that is attatched to the body (the outside) goes to ground or the negative battery terminal. The other wire goes to power or positive battery terminal.

How can I install the garmin 665 to my bike harness without damaging the garmin gps or my bike electric components. I want to connect the power cord to my battery directly. How should I go about...


I don't particularly recommend connecting your GPS directly to your battery. Hooking it up in this way puts you at risk for running down the battery, since the GPS will not turn off when you turn off the bike. You might be able to get the same solution by running a positive lead from one of the fuses in the fuse box. That would get you a switched power solution without necessarily complicating your installation.
However, whether you're connecting directly to the battery or through the fuse box, you'll need the same basic materials: a 12v cigarette lighter charger for your GPS and an in-line fuse to protect the GPS from power surges. Use a cigarette / 12v power port in your car to double-check the positive / negative assignments to each side of the cigarette lighter charger. Then, keeping track of those wires, cut off the charging end, so you have 2 bare wires. Add the in-line fuse (10 amp should be fine; 5 amp might be appropriate, too) to the positive wire. I suggest soldering the leads, rather than using crimp or pressure connectors; motorcycles have a habit of vibrating everything loose, over time.
Once you have your prepared charging line, run it down from where you plan to mount your GPS to your chosen power supply. Install the negative wire to ground by attaching it to a frame or motor bolt, rather than directly to the battery. This will be easier if you attach a loop terminal that fits between the bolt and the tightening nut. On the positive side, if you're connecting directly to the battery, attach another loop connector to the wire and sandwich it between the positive terminal of the battery and the primary power lead. If you're going into the fuse box, you may be able to sneak a bare wire in between one of the fuses and their fuse holder. Simple friction may hold it in place. A more elegant solution would be to attach that lead to the terminal with a dab of solder. Place your lead on the incoming side of the fuse, so that your power drain doesn't go through the existing fuse and blow it.

New battery but have no power what so ever


Check the fuses. One or two are probably blown. Also check battery wire connections; The black wire hooks to the ( - ) negative terminal and the red wire hooks to the ( + ) positive terminal. If you have a gel battery then all should be okay. If you have a lead-acid battery, has the acid been added to the battery? Please rate my answer. Thanks.

Hi ,
It sounds like you have blown the main fuse . Change the main fuse and before connecting your battery i would run a quick check over the bike to make sure that no wires are earthed . the best way is to take a ohm meter and check that the positive terminal is not in contact with the frame of the bike anywhere . Just put the ohm meter in series ( one terminal to the positive of the bike and the other terminal from the meter to the bike frame of motor . If the meter does not show anything , the fuse is blown or no contact between the positive and the frame/motor If the meter shows some reading , it means that the frame /motor is in contact with the positive of your battery and you need to test the harness ( wiring loom of the bike for any faults .) Best of luck and let me know how you go .
