SOURCE: Bike won't start and run.

Is your fuel pump functioning? you should be able to hear it inside the gas tank when the ignition is turned on and the handle bar control is in the "RUN" position.

It does sound like your problem is the bike is not getting fuel. Inside the tank with the fuel pump there is also a fuel filter, if this is plugged up you will not get enough fuel pressure to run the bike.

If the pump is working and the filter is not plugged up then its possible your injectors could be contaminated, they would have to be removed and cleaned.

Besides the solutions above you could check the fuses and see if the EFI fuse is blown or faulty wiring or a short in the fuel system wiring could give you the same symptoms.

This is the best I can do without more information or actually looking at the bike.

Hope this helped a little.

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.

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.

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

Rattling noise coming from transmission.


Hi, David I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. Good luck and have nice a day.

I get fule but the car wont turn over what could ir be


If the engine won't crank at all check your battery leads for cleanliness and tightness - particularly the black earth lead where it also connects to the bodywork/engine block.

If the engine still won't crank get somebody to boost-start your battery using their car. If your car then cranks and fires up it is probably your battery at fault: either discharged or it has failed.

If your car won't crank when being boosted it may well point to a cable/start motor/solenoid problem

2001 1200 sportster cranks and backfires, carb and fuel good, could it be crank sensor?


Wasted spark system. If fuel and electrical is all good/correct it is often the case in these symptoms that motor cycle spark plugs that although looking good and firing outside of the engine are breaking down and will not fire under compression pressures on a power stroke but will fire unburned fuel on the unpressurized exhaust stroke when the plug again fires in a wasted spark ignition system and when so firing the result is a backfire, usually quite loud.

Just did top end on 02 cr80rb. Fired up was running great. Than through the gears started loosing power in lower rpms. Stopped bike and than it wouldn't kick back over. Checked plug for possible foul,...


ouch.. Hey Bagger,, sounds like she seized up... not a good thing...
1. Will it kick over at all??
2. if it kicks over, does it make any grinding or metallic sounds?

What exactly did you do to this bike? IN DETAIL.. why did you rebuild it..what happened that it needed rebuilding?
PLEASE respond on here, in detail,

Thanks..

Replaced stator and battery, bike still givin trouble


the regulater is located between tha battery and the gas tank .There are (3) white and(2)red wires .See if they are showing signs of damage from heat more than likley they are because when you "boost" or jump these bikes you burn a very weak diode witch regulates the charging time from the stator i would check ebay for the best price on a new regulater rectifier you may need one.I had the same problem with my 2000 model r6.good luck bro!

2002 vtx1800c cranks but does not start.


hello and welcome
as i understand the vtx cranks but does not start. a good place i would start to look is the spark plugs. first you can verify that the plugs are not blackened over and wet. this would happen from fouling. with the vtx not turning over properly with the old weak battery alot of fuel was used in the cylinders and possibly fouled them out. ive seen that be a very popular problem. the other it to check for spark if the plugs appear to be fine. this can determine if something was faulted in the ignition.
