You have a poor connectioin somewhere due to corrosion. I would begin by cleaning up the battery poles and the cables there. Then trace each battery wire and clean the other end with special attention to the ground wire where it is connected to the frame. Finally get a can electronic spray from any auto parts store and spray all of the connections in the headlight.

Any ideas to why my VIP champion won't hold it's charge? It's dies out even while riding.


the stater is probably bad, not recharging the battery. if your mower is not charging and the battery goes completely dead it may die.

I bought a new battery yesterday and installed it. When I got home this morning, my car was jerking and and finally it died when i parked my car. any ideas?


The alternator is bad, it is not charging the battery, to confirm it get another battery, then start and remove one battery head if it goes off, that means the alternator is bad.

If the battery is no good , this can cause some of the problems described, as the charge system tries to put out as much charge as it can, and not be able to charge the battery.
Try a volt meter on the battery, should be around 12v engine stopped and rise a couple of volts with the engine running.

Bought 18 yr. old grandson his first bike about 3 weeks ago (I'm his grandma). It is a used 2009 HD 883 Sportster. Only had 285 miles on it. First clue to troubles: The first day he rode it, his father...


Yes the brakes will work if the bike does so you can take a breath of relief because there is no brake booster it is just hydraulic pressure from the hand and foot switch. What i think may be happening with this bike is a faulty regulator rectifier. This will cause the battery to die with the key off AND it will also cause the battery not to charge correctly when the bike is running. It may hold a charge but will not charge further. What this unit will do is keep the voltage consistent from the alternator charge.

Took my bike out, WR450f 07 model, got to the shop and had something to eat, came out and bike wouldn't go, headlight globe was blown, actually smashed, was no spark so replaced spark plug and checked...


My thoughts...Light globes are made to withstand voltages of less than 16 volts. So if you are finding your headlight globe burnt out, it's because the system voltage has exceeded this. Have your voltage regulator replaced which will remedy the problem. Over voltage will have an effect on other electronic components such as the CDI unit and wreck your battery too.

Bike Died - No Power


i would check if you have a short somewhere.....but first make sure your battery connections are tight....gauges turning off and on while riding is usually a sign of a loose connection meaning you hit a bump or something and it briefly clips out...did the bike actually turn off??? i dunno....but that seems to be a very odd problem....take out the battery, put it on a trickle and let it charge to full cap....then reconnect making sure the terminal connections are secure and see what happens.... if that works, we''ll have to start diagnosing further, but like they always say, check the obvious first !
