SOURCE: My BT1100 will not start.

Normally I would say it was dirty terminals, but a jump start should by pass that. Because of the clicking sound, start with the terminals, then try to find your stater motor and try to identify where the sound is actually coming from (ie take the seat off). The solenoid is the next thing that makes that noise, and finally if all else fails, then your starter motor is cactus. I cannot find a manual for you, but have a look yourself, you might find a comparable one that will help you.

SOURCE: I have a '99 FZS Fazer 600, and it won't start.

i had same problem turned out to be electrical issue check all your wiring connections under the seat and under your fuel tank and if there all fine try checking that your fuel pump motor is running mine wasnt because of damp on my wiring connectors. when you turn on the ignition the bike should click a few times and your fuel pump should come on look under your tank looks like this with 2 tubes running from your fuel tank
this needs to be running or you will be riding the bike on gravity fed fuel and as soon as you open the bike up you will not get enough to the engine and will cut out hope this helps

The battery and stator.Both needs to be checked and replaced.The stator charges the battery when bike is running.If the battery is old, as per me battery life is approx 2 to 3 years.In your case battery not holding charge. Replace the battery, this should take care of problem.But if problem is same then stator also has to be replaced.-------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Sounds like the starter is dragging, when the bike gets hot the starter barely turns. And those bikes don't actually have an alternator. It's like a magneto system that keeps the battery from draining, but doesn't actually charge the battery. I would take the starter off and have it tested.

it sound like you may have a alternator discharge problem . Charge the battery take it for a ride when you get back try starting the bike if it starts fine disconect the battery over night then hook it back up the next day if it starts fine their is a draw from something. if it doesn't start you have a bad plate in side the battery discharging it 9replace the battery) if the bike doesn't start after your test ride the the alternator has gone bad or is not hooked up correctly.

It sounds like the alt is having charging problems. A good or new battery will build itself up after it sits by itself. You can take it to Auto Zone and have themtest the charging system while it is running. Does your lights come on automatically when you start the bike? If so check your charging system. Hope this helps please leave a comment.

Bike was left on and battery fully discharged. It

Were you having trouble with the battery before this incident? If not, then charge the battery with a charger...NOT a trickle charger...for 12 hours. After this, check the voltage with a volt-ohm meter, it should read 12v -14v. Install in the bike, connect and check it again with the volt-ohm meter, it should hold the same reading as off the bike.

Try to start the bike, if it starts, check the battery again, now it should read 14v or a little more. Turn everything off and try to start it again. If it starts, the battery is still good but don't leave it on like that anymore.

If you get anything less than 12v after ther charge, the battery most likely has a dead cell and needs to be replaced.

My 2000 harley davidson motorcycle wont hold a charge

Get access to the battery terminal posts, star the bike and set the meter to "Volts DC". Touch the leads to the positive and negative posts and see what the meter reads. If the voltage is between 13-15 volts then the bike is charging, if thats the case the bike is charging but your battery is hooped. Start with that and if the bike isnt charging then write back again for trouble shooting instructions.

Bike cranks and wont start

Hi .... Sounds like regulator/rectifier is defective. Fully charge battery and try starting again, place multi-meter across battery and it should show 12.8-14 volts. If it doesn't replace reg/rec unit.
