SOURCE: Replaced battery, bike cranked, after riding 4 miles, just ticks

check battery leads (both ends) , Then make sure battery is charged 100% (verry important) Get out your (Digital) volt meter set it to DC volts Connect leads to the Battery, it should have at least 12.6 v , Watch meter and start engine, if meter drops below 10.0 volts your battery may be weak and will have to be replaced, or your starter is'nt mechanicaly efficient and will have to be fixed or replaced. While engine is running note voltage should be 12.6-13v volts, then rev engine to 3000 RPM , meter should read 13.5- 15 vdc. If not you have a problem with your stator or regulator/rectifier.

SOURCE: bought a new battery rode

To check the output of the charging system, first, you must start with a fully charged battery. Then connect your DVOM (Digital Volt Ohm Meter) across the battery. Red meter lead to the positive post and the black meter lead to the negative post of the battery. Put the meter's function selection switch in DC VOLTS, 25 VOLTS OR GREATER scale. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Your meter should read between 14.5 to 15.0 volts.

If not, find where the regulator plugs into the alternator. A Big Twin is in the front of the engine and the Sportster is behind rear cylinder. In the stator side of the plug, there are two metal contacts. This is where you're going to check the voltage output of your stator. Put the meter's function switch in AC VOLTS, 50 VOLT OR GREATER scale. Start the engine and insert either meter lead into one metal contact and the other lead into the other contact. Do not allow the leads to touch each other or the engine case. Bring the engine to a high idle. If you're working on a Big Twin, you should be reading at least 30 volts, a Sportster should read about 25 volts. If you don't read this much, your stator is bad, If you do read this much, it's probably the regulator. But, since you said that you've changed the regulator at least once, I'd guess maybe another problem. Make sure you regulator is grounded to the frame. I always put one of those star type lock washers between the regulator and the frame on both mounting bolts. The regulator must be grounded.

Good Luck
Steve

Red light came on (not the reverse light)


What picture is shown w/the red light? Did it come on while bike is running or just when key is in the on position before you crank/start the bike?

I would say its the coil. A crank or cam sensor could cause one cylinder to miss, or go completely dead, but I doubt it would affect two cylinders. And you would get a code for either sensor.

107,000 miles and my "should be serviced soon"


Hi,
The computer is programed to have a general check up for every 100,000 miles. Thats why it shows that message.
You have to go to your dealer to reset the computer and have your car get a general maintenance check up.
Hpe that solve the problem!
Thanks for using Fixya!

The shear key on the crankshaft timing gear keeps shearing. first time it bent valves.put a new motor in(30,000 miles) drove a few weeks. key shesred .I cut grove in crank so I could put a long key in it...


the crankshaft bolt may not be torqued correctly or for some reason inst "pinching" the balancer/gear tight enough to prevent the hammering effect that breaks the key.

Keyless entry will not operate nor can i crank 2002 escalade


i think the battery in this key is dead. the ignition is suppose to recharge the key through normal use. if the key is not used often enough, it will lose its charge and need to be reprogrammed by the dealer.

try your other key to see if it will work. once you get them both working again, make sure to rotate them every 6 months so both maintain a full charge.

if you find the ignition is not recharging the key, then a trip to the dealer will be necessary to get it fixed. you might still be covered by the 4 year bumper to bumper warranty as long as you are under 50,000 miles regardless if you bought it new or used at a non BMW dealership or private sale.

good luck

Will not fire


When you turn the key, do all of the little lights on the tach light up and stay lit before you try the starter ? I ask because my key-switch has become a little fickle this year. Sometimes when I turn the key, I can hear the electronics going through the pre-start sequence, but, only one little light on the tach comes on, and then I know that it's gonna act up a little. When that occurs, the engine will crank but will not start. Have to turn back the key and do a little jiggle and wiggle of the key on the tumblers while turning the key to get everything working
