SOURCE: bike will not start no power

Touch a 12" piece of wire to one terminal then touch the other end of the wire to the other terminal. Got a really good spark? No spark = bad battery. Okay, so you do get a good spark. Check the wiring harness for an unplugged wire. Also check for loose connections and burned wires. Bad ignition switch? Kill switch turned on?

SOURCE: bike wont turn over

Use the voltmeter to check the battery while you are trying to start the bike. If it drops below 10v the battery is bad. If it stays at 12v or more look for a loose cable or poor ground.

SOURCE: LOST POWER WHILE RIDING

It is likely that youve popped a fuse
The battery would have to be totalled to behave like that
But it sounds like the battery isnt being charged properly. Make sure the voltage across the batt terminals is at least 13.5v at tickover rising to no more than 15.5v at higher revs
Make sure the battery connections are TIGHT as well

New Battery in Bike, turn the key and nothing happens.


Get a test light probe so you can follow the power lead from the battery to the fuses. It will show you where power is getting to and where it isn't.

You've checked the connection from the fuse to the batterie but have you tried to bypass the keyswitch, it could be the switch doesn't connect inside or the key doesn't turn the switch inside.

1999 800vs replaced battery when key is turned on to start bike all lights on speedometer light up should be just green neutral.bike just clicks will not turnover


Actually when the key is turned on all the "dash" lights come on neutral, oil, temp and what ever else as soon as the bike starts the lights will go out. If the lights come on while the engine is running then you have a problem or it's in neutral "green".

For the bike not starting a few things, first off the battery even though you say it's new may have been sitting on the shelf for a while and they do loose power so it may need charging. The newer bikes the headlight light comes on when the key is turned on which robs the starting system of power to turn the starter, the batteries need to be good on these bikes or it's just not going to work. If the headlight comes on and looks yellow or amber then there isn't enough power in the battery. If it's a nice bright white light then there is power and the starter may need to be serviced.

If the bike has been sitting over the winter I'd guess the battery has just lost power and requires charging.

Cheers be safe and have fun with your motorcycle

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.

Battery drains after 3 days of no use


Even though the battery is new does not mean its not faulty!
Also you might want to check the bikes alternater and make sure it is charging the battery when you are running the bike!
I hope this helps you!
