Du hotline I had a dead battery and the bike has been without battery charge for a couple of months. I replaced the battery today. All the gauges and lights, signals, horn work but I cant start the engine. I have tried it on neutral and on first using the clutch but it does not crank. What should I look for or try.

Check that the cable from your battery to the starter motor is not corroded and maybe broken.

SOURCE: bad battery

Don't rely on on whether the bike will start at a gas station to determine if the charging system is working. Get the multimeter out and do a proper test. Should be getting about 14.5 volts @ around 3K RPM. It's too easy of a test to to just skip. If it is charging then start looking for something else. Was the new battery properly charged to begin with? Loose battery connection? I suppose the GPS could be too much but you said that it was dying last november, so I would suspect something else. P.S. you need a properly charged battery to get an accurate reading for the charging test.

SOURCE: coupling is stuck / sticks together

The problem may be the clutch thrust bearing,if it seizes and you pull in the handlebar lever the mechanism may get damaged . A lot of play in the lever and rough action with no effect on the clutch is the result.It may just be the clutch plate slightly seized the results of this are proper handlebr lever action but as soon as you put the bike in gear in jumps forward ,try running the engine at tickover for 30 minutes to really warm up the bike then put it in gear,after a few trys things should free up.

SOURCE: My 2006 BMW G650 has a brand new battery that died after 3 weeks

Sounds like you need to check your charging system.Battery when engine running alittle over idle should charge at 14.5 volts. If it does not check the output of your stator by testing lead at the regulator rectifier... It may be you have a bad regulator rectifier...

Make sure all the basic stuff has been checked such as...

-fuel in tank at sufficient level?
-engine stop switch on RHS handlebar?
-transmission in neutral?
-side stand up if trans. not in neutral?
-check for damage to wiring under seat at fuel pump controller?

If all else fails take to dealer or call for roadside assistance to pick up bike and take it to BMW dealer for warranty repair. Use the warranty instead of trying to DIY it!

could have fuel delivery problem, ignition problem.... who knows without some diagnostic tools.

Charge and load test the battery. If the battery sat dead for as little as two weeks , it could be sulfated and no good. If it is a Yuasa battery it only has a 6 month warranty , grab your receipt and race back to the dealer. They will charge and load test it three times . If it does not pass the load test you will get a new battery if it is still under warranty. Grab your voltmeter and unplug the plug with three yellow wires that is coming out of your stator. The three yellow wires coming from the stator should have continuity with each other and no continuity between any of the yellow wires and ground. That is the test for the stator. If the stator is good , the battery is good , then you probably have a bad regulator/rectifier. I suspect you just have a bad battery.

Bike has been standing for almost a year - just bought it. New battery, but it seems not to be charging. Earlier today the bike gave up while it was running - missed and died on me. After a while it bump...


Hi, Gwillc8669 if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 3 years or older when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

You need to charge it until the gauge reads 0. If your battery has been dead for that long it could well be ruined and need to be replaced. Be sure to take the charger off before you try to start the engine or you could burn out your charger.

Instrument Cluster needles stuck -- Electrical Problems


Needles stuck indicative of instrument cluster complete failure. Cause unknown. This is second instrument cluster that has failed on this bike, first one failed at about 3000 miles, twenty-two months ago. This "new" one died in mid May 2008. Received word from Ducati North America that they will accept the warranty claim for the toasted instrument cluster!!! Am still concerned about cause...this is second instrument cluster for this S2R800. Seems to be an issue prevalent on some of these late model Monsters. Will update more after instrument cluster gets in and replaced by Bloodworth Ducati in Nashville.
