Re: s-750DD

Not sure if this will help... however an altmeter will allow you to test along your electrics for any faults. You can check at the lights for example and throught the system.

I have a 1997 Kawasaki Prairie 400 4 by 4. It has sat for a while and I would go start it and stuff but after it sat for awhile I rode it and it rode fine. Now It bogs when I push the throttle. Help

Hi, Bridger 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 idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 3 years or older 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 better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

I have a 1999 Suzuki Marauder VZ800. Lately I have been having problems with the battery. Before you say go buy a new one, the battery will be fine for a while, but then it won't be able to turn the bike...

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.

NzWhat sort of charger would we need to charge the battery at home of our SJ50QT scooter? Thanks

If the battery is 12V, which i think it is, than any small 12V charger, the plug in trickle charger is the best, i have 3 of these and leave them connected 24 hours 7 days a week on my toys (bikes+car) which i dont use regularly.

I recently bought a 2005 softail deluxe and was told before purchase the battery was going out so the seller put a new battery on before purchase. I rode the bike for approximately 3-5 days with no issues...

If you are buying a multitester also consider buying a small motorcycle battery charger. They make ones that have a remote charging cable that you put on the battery one time and then you have an easy way to connect the small charger up when the bike it sitting for long periods. This will keep the battery fully charged and ready to go when you are.
Some batteries are sold only partially charged and you need to bench charge them fully before running them on the bike. Depending on your bikes energy demands the battery may never fully charge up during regular use.
If you put the multitester on DC voltage check the battery to see what its resting charge state is.
If the battery is reading less than 10.6 volts its probably down too low the recharge itself using the bikes alternator. Charge it until its resting voltage is 12.0 volts. Then your bikes alternator can make enough juice at 14-15 volts to recharge the battery while its running.
Good luck and be careful.

It has been rode of and on for the last 4 yrs. It runs like it is out of gas but the choke will let you ride. It still will not run but about half speed.

replace your air and fuel filters. Make sure your battery is fully charged. Buy a battery charger and hook it up. Change the spark plugs.

I have a 2003 dyna wide glide,,lately we charge the battery and can ride for bout an hour and half and then it won't start,,can you please tell me what the problem is ? Have to jump start it,,then put it...

I would first ck the charge rate at the battery. Between 13.6 - 14.2 is the happy zone. If above no good, if below, charging hard.. Ck the battery fluid level. If less than 1/4 you can go ahead and frown cause the battery is trash. Fill it up with distilled water and put it on a charger no larger tha a 1.5 amp chharger. Trickle charge for 24 hrs and if the battery is savable it will take the charge. Now the charging rate. The condition of the battery affects the charging. Supply and deman. Once the battery is charged up, take a reading with the bike running again. Bike needed to be running on fitst reading too, sorry. If it's in the happy zone you're set. If not , replace the battery if a load test at the parts store fails. I say battery first becausebecause it is cheaper than a stator and the battery on a bike is prone to failure because of vibration, and servicing inadequacies. No offence. Let me know how it all turns out. Good Luck, Ned-

Battery does not hold charge new battery fitted

Sounds like a charging issue. First check all wires and make sure they are clean and making good contact, then check for proper voltage at the battery. I ride a harly so I don't know the exact voltage to look for but it most likly is around 13V at the battery if it isn't you need to look at your voltage regulator and stator.

Can't charge my e-scooter

ok you do not need a new charger. the problem is you let the battery get too low. the battery has to have a little bit of power left in it to send to the charger, if it dosent then the charger can't tell if there is rilly a battery hooked up or not. you shuld probubly get a new battery. or you can email me and i will tell you a few things you could try to jump it back to life.

Schwinn S180 won't charge

NashvilleDan, this scooter has 2 12v 10 amp batteries in series, you should read over 24 volts at the charging hub if the batteries are good. I would think that if the scooter sat for over a year you have bad batteries, They can be purchased at battery plus.
