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.

Engine light


Trouble codes are stored until such time they are cleared from the memory. Usually the memory can be cleared by disconnecting the negative battery cable from the battery for several seconds If the 'Management light' comes back on check for more codes.

My check engine light is on, what could be the problem? I recently replaced the battery w/ a brand new battery.


The check engine light is on because the engine management system has detected a fault, you need to pull the code(s) and follow that they indicate...
Battery would have little to do with the light on condition, but removal of the battery may erase codes... Find the error and attend to that.

Hi the battery is flat on my speed triple its


hi might be able to help,if the bike has been stood for a while and the battery is flat,you will need to either slow charge the battery(if it will accept a charge) or replace it,jumping the battery will only give the battery a surface charge and will not be adequate to run all of your electronics effectively,this may be why the engine management light is staying in,hope this helps..cheers

The engine light is not a worry. When you change a battery on a speed four the management system resets. What you need to do is let the engine go through a cycle of reaching working temperature and cooling again. This allows the management system to relearn the working parameters. Once this is done the engine light will go out.

Engine managment light xtype 2 litre petrol 2002 manual


Hi

I see you posted this in Nov O8 and expect you might be OK.

If not you might try this.

Try disconnecting the battery + & - terminals.

Turn the ignition key several times to erase the computers memory.

Reconect the battery + terminal then - and start the car.

Your fault code, will hopefully not return.

Hope this is of help.

Good Luck !

John.
