If this is an after market alarm system make sure that there is no corrosion on the wires and that the posts are clean. Try borrowing a battery to check if it's a battery issue. It could be low on water...I'm not sure if you have checked that.

Disconnect the alarm, give the battery a full charge and see if it manages to hold the charge. If not, measure the current flow through one of the battery terminals. Should only be one or two milliamps..!

2000 Honda CBR 1100 XX Super Blackbird sitting for 5 years


Hi, Anonymous if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will not idle unless the choke is full on and run poorly then stall, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition and in the future pour in a bottle of fuel stabilizer and injector cleaner for you FI folks at least 2 times a year and before storage.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or more, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper "LOAD" test on the battery and replace as necessary, you may have 12.5 volts or better but little or zero amps, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and the battery needs to be replaced.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank if it rusty there is a cheap and easy fix. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUYr_7SwGms
5. Remove and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil soaked elements must be replaced. Gause mesh and foam elements can be cleaned by soaking them in a container big enough to completely cover them with a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid for small and medium size elements, for monster size double the formula and let soak for at least one hour then rinse with warm water shake off excess and let air dry, "WARNING" do not use compressed air as this will embed micro-sized dirt and road grime and destroy the mesh pattern and stretch foam elements out of shape just squeeze it like a sponge and let air dry, use a fan if you're in a hurry. When completely dry spray a very fine mist of air filter oil evenly around the whole element.
6. Remove the carburetors, disassemble and decontaminate with a "CARB DIP" or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Check intake manifold and seals for leaks and cracks.
8. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.
9. Replace spark plugs with new ones and check for spark.

2005 kawasaki 750 vulcan,starts hard and doesn't seem to be charging,is it the stator??


i have found on these bikes that if the battery is not strong enough it does not crank the engine fast enough to start easily. Especially like it sounds like you are concerned about the charging.Maybee jump start the bike with a strong battery of a car or powerpack and see if this still happens. Beware when jump starting not to short the leads you could blow your CDI.

Put in new battery still no power. was riding and everything went dead. the bike is a 98 cbr 1100


Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, have you checked the 30A main fuse? It would be inside the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

Seems like fuse blown


Does the bike run right now........all lights work, horn blow?? If it runs good and all electronics work, then don't worry about it, it may have been a relay kicking on when you introduced the battery to the system.
hope this helps

CHARGE BATTERY, THEN START BIKE UP. AFTER RIDING


Sounds like you are not getting a charge from the alternator. You need to check battery voltage with a meter with the engine off, key off. Then again with it running, and the voltage should increase. If not, it's not charging.

My 2005 Crf 250 r will not start by kicking when cold if you roll it it will fire right up like it should runs great after you get it started the first time what are some simple things that i could try to...


Add water to the battery. Enough to cover the plates in each cell.
The battery may be on its' last legs. If you don't have a 1 or 2 amp charger, push start the bike and ride for a few hours. This should charge the battery < IF > it will still take a charge. If it won't take a charge and hold it then it's time for a new battery.

The reason you can push start the bike is that the flywheel is able to spin fast enough to generate enough current to provide spark. Kick starting won't do that. Just because a battery has SOME power does't mean it has ENOUGH power to do as needed.

Please rate this answer. Thanks hunterdan01!
