My battery light comes on first time out this season kept it charged through winter 2011 deluxe after i shut bike down battery light stays on and slowly fades out bike seems well charged open wire?

Not an open wire. What is the charge on the battery. Sounds like maybe the voltage regulator is defective and the battery is draining back through it possibly. Disconnect it or pull the main fuse and see what happens then.

Two possibilities. 10 the battery is weak. 2) the battery charging voltage regulator is not charging the battery.--------- Most probably voltage regulator is the cause of problem.But get both the battery and regulator bench tested by local garage.--------Om some cases both battery and regulator checks out faulty, so both needs to be replaced.-------------

This will solve the problem or point you towards the cause of problem. Thank you for using fixya.

When in gear bike cuts out when moving off? is this problem due to a faulty stand switch. my bike has been in the garage over the winter and jusr run up to top up the battery,had no problems in the past.

sounds like its the safty cut out switch on the stand to me as well, you should see it by looking under the bike by the stand,,,its just a push in switch,,,
as for leaving the bike over winter with out charging the battery up,,,well smack your legs! you will soon need a new battery for that!
il give you a tip here!!!! get yourself a cheap solar charger of say 2.5 watts hook that to the bikes battery and leave the charger in good light,(sun light is good) but good day light works as well, this will keep the battery fully charged up all winter and can double the life of the battery,,,cheap power?

Engine will not turn over, clicking sound

Three things cause your problem:

1. Dirty terminals

2. Battery flat or not holding charge (Cactus)

3. Starter motor has had it and all it can do is click the solenoid in and out.

Solution: Take it to an auto-electrician and he will diagnose your problem in a few seconds and rarely charges for this service. OR, you could attempt to jump start it from another bike, if it is the battery, it will turn over.

Should i start it and let it run in the winter?

Yes, yes, yes! Keep oil lubing the engine. If real cold to ride just starting it up at least once a week and let it warm up all the way. Also check your battery for full charge. If standing for months add "sta-bil" fuel stabilizer to your gas and follow instructions. Will not hurt engine. I add this every winter to all my bikes. Your bike will stay in great shape.

Battery wont stay charged

Ok this is probably one of two things either you have a bad earth on the bike causing a poor re charge rate or your alternator / magneto has gone up the spout ?.
If it is a bad earth you will probably be getting other symptons as well for insatnce rear bulbs blowing or headlight bulbs blowing ..horn or starter ( if fitted ) works intermittently you get the picture . check around the bike to all points where the loom attaches to the frame or the engine ( usually black wire bolted to earth ..= frame ) remove and check wires then clean the area it was attached to with a bit of sand paper / emery cloth and refit especially the one from the battery Minus side Black ?. that will go straight to frame somewhere . If it stays the same after you do this you need to check the output of the magneto . with the bike running place a multimeter on the battery terminals voltages should be any where between 12.volts to 13.5 or higher check specs in manuel if not then Magneto / dynamo / alternator faulty finaly if all else fails ( and this was left till last as you said it was new check the ph of the battery ie sometimes new battries should be full of acid but are not .. just water I have had a few .. especially if they are the none maintanance type . .. hope this helps Regards vortash

Won't start without charger on battery.

when you charge the battery make sure that its cable is is loosen from the motor coz it can damage your charging system. on your case you have damage it already that's your light dims whenever you rev the rpm up. so change your voltage regulator of your charging system, charge the battery and it is done easy.

Ducati 620s - Won't Start - Dead

The battery has died over the winter. Indicators staying on is a sure fire signal of low battery charge.

The battery may have enough amperage to get the headlight and the horn working, but the indicator relays take a bit more.

New battery I'm afraid.
