The problem you are describing is due to a poor battery connection or a poor ground connection. Take the cables off of the battery and clean both the battery terminals and the cables with emory cloth. Get rid of all corrosion and other crud. Trace the black wire which is the ground to the other end and disconnect and clean it up alsl

I got the bike rode for a while it sat for a couple of weeks and when I tried to start it it was dead. I tried getting the battery charged and it didn't work. I got a new battery and that worked for about...


If the bike is losing ALL power, I'm talking about dash lights, headlight, tail light, ALL lights, it's probably something tripping the main breaker. The breaker should be located either under the seat or behind the trianglular panel on the right side of the bike. I'd look for a frayed wire near the starter or around the rear cylinder due to the head in that area.

Good Luck

Charging system problem

Sounds like your charging system is not charging the battery.

Put a volt meter on the battery, run the engine up to maybe 2,000 RPM. The voltage must be at least 13.8V, but not more than 14.5.

If that is all OK, your battery is worn out, and is not holding sufficient reserve. It would need to be replaced.

Appeared to have a low battery when starting my bike, but it turned on. Rode about 1 1/2 miles when it hesitated twice and then i heard a loud pop, sounded like a backfire. The bike turned off and i had no...


So is the battery...ignition needs "X" amount of Volts to run the ignition, the BANG you heard was the engine pre-igniting a fuel mixture in the combustion chamber - because the ignition didn't have enough juice to fire the plug...but the HEAT of the engine DID!
Replace the battery with one from WalMart and Ride!
Good Luck

Battery drained while riding


Sounds like you either have corroded wires going to your battery or your alternator is not properly charging the battery. Get the bike to an autozone and ask them to put their tester on it.

please mark this as a fizya! thanks
