Motorcycle will not start


My first question is did the bike work OK before it was stripped and painted?
It is possible paint has got onto the main earthing (ground) point on the chassis/frame. I would first check that there is a good earth connection from battery to frame and all light units. Other than the turn signals coming on do any other lights show when you turn the ignition on? If no I would try checking the battery. Remove the battery from the bike AND THIS IS MOST IMPORTANT remove the negative lead first then the positive.
Check the battery has voltage approx 12.5 to 13.2 volts is OK, next connect a 21 watt bulb to the terminals and see if the light dims over 1 minute. If OK get a dedicated motorcycle battery charger (a charger for a car is no good) with an output of less than 1 amp. Charge the battery for a few hours. Refit battery into your bike AND THIS IS MOST IMPORTANT TOO re-connect the positive lead first then the negative.

WARNING never try to jump start your bike from a car/van etc. The more powerful batteries in these vehicles will fry your bikes electrics.

ALWAYS use a dedicated motorcycle battery charger.

ALWAYS remove and refit your battery as stated above.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Bike gives a click as if it has a dead battery but the battery is charged and starts other bikes fine


If the batteries good its probably a bad ground. make sure the hot and negative wires are good from the battery AND where they end up. The ground wire usually grounds to the frame somewhere, trace the ENTIRE wire!

I have a 2005 harley davidson fatboy and my problem is that when i try to start the bike it clicks really loud ?, the volts on my battery are 12.80, but when i put the bike on the 200 amp engine start it...


You cannot go by a volt meter reading to tell whether your battery is good or not. The battery will read 12 volts and still not have enough current to light a decent bulb on your bike. This is because the volt meter is designed not to load the battery down. You starter puts a tremendous load on the battery. I'd also avoid using the "boost" or "jump start" position on the battery charger. You can get a voltage spike from those things and take out some expensive electronics on your bike. Take the battery out of the bike and take it somewhere that can "load test" the battery.

Good Luck

Charged battery, then checked out put was on 11.3 an it should be 14.4 or better where do i start ?


11.3 indicates that your staring out with a low battery.

a fully charged battery should be at least 12.5 volts before you even start the bike.
Once the bike is started the voltage meter should read 12.8 + volts at an idle.
Once the bike is reved to 2000 RPM the voltage meter should read 13.75 - 14.80 Volts.

I would start withe a good battery. Have it load tested before you install it to ensure it is a good battery. Your local auto parts store load test them for free.

I cant't start my wave 125cc this light on the meter but once i hit the electric start button everything goes off and we i release the e start button everything go on again.


Your battery is most likely very flat, it has enough power to run your lights but not enought to turn over your engine to start it. Best thing to do is try to bump start it if the bike is a manual, put the bike into 2nd or third gear down a hill, get the bike rolling with the clutch in and let the clutch out when you get to good rolling speed. the bike will **** into life. Let the bike run for a good 20 mins. Battery should be recharged enough to start the bike again.
If the bike is an automatic you will have to use a battery charger.

My bike runs real good and starts easy but just


Sound like the magneto is not charging the battery properly, and your bike is then running off the battery while running, sending it flat.

To test this, start the bike, then remove the battery from the bike, it should be able to run without the battery connected. Make sure the positive lead does not touch metal on the bike.

Using a multimeter, check that you have 13.8 volts at the battery while the bike is running, anything less than this and your bike is not charging the battery properly.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have you checked the 30 Amps main fuse and its holder clips? It would be integrated with the starter relay. The fuse or the fuse holder may have heat related problem(s) causing it to loose conductivity when hot.The fuse may require replacement even if it tests good and/or the fuse holder would need cleaning / crimping. To locate the starter relay (main fuse), follow the battery cable from the + terminal of the battery.

Please postback results.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
