Did you have the battery on a battery tender all winter? If not it may be shot. Check the main fuse. Check that the battery is not hooked up bckwards and that the posts and cables are all clean and not loose,

SOURCE: electric start dont work

You probably have a bad switch

First look to se if there are any fuses
also see if horn works

FIX for determining if starter works


to find out take jumper cables and put the red cable on the plus side of the battery and the black on the minus side of battery(ground)

Put the black lead(ground ) on the frame of the bike near starter and touch the red to the starter lead( you may have to peel back rubber boot over starter nut

when you touch the starter nut it will spark and should spin over

if it does then you need to remove the screw assembly that holds the starter button and remove and clean it out with electronic cleaner (you may have to replace it if so go to honda shop and order new one


Good luck

SOURCE: honda cb750 f2 1978fault on old bike ! electrical problem

From your explanation it sure sounds electricals, but surprising to hve a total failure to the electricals and thn it reappears after 30seconds!
Best would be to go through the wiring especially frm the battery onwards, the fuse box .
Since it is totally disappearing it should be a fault to those main wires could be lose connections somewhere!.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1999 road king wont start

Its your fuel pump if you can't hear it. And its inside your tank. Not a hard fix if you have a book that tells you how to remove it. Alot of procedures to follow to get it right. And yes it does work off a relay.

2012 Harley Road King won't start. Tried jumping the bike with a portable jumper. The bike started twice but as soon as the jumper was disconnected the bike died. On the third attempt some smoke came from...


Go to your battery find out where that smoke is coming from. It sounds like summer your wires melted together. That was cause everything the short out, make sure your battery is charged, take it out of the bike and charge it and make sure you got about 12.67 V coming out of it. When you tested smoke coming from anywhere as bad. You could have some wires melted together file your wire harness, make sure that's not so

On my way to work at 4AM, headlight began flickering and then my engine light came on, what is wrong? My bike is running, what would cause this?


You might want to test your charging system. You charging system might have went bad on you and you're running off the battery.

Charge the battery fully and then connect a digital volt ohm meter to the battery. Red meter lead to positive, black meter lead to negative post. Put the meter's function switch in DC VOLTS, 20 VOLTS or greater scale. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. You should read 14.5 to 15.0 volts.

Good Luck

When I turn on the ignition switch on my '01 Road King nothing happens-no power to anything. I've checked to make sure the battery is charged and has good connection. Any suggestions as to what to check...


Hi Slowhand62, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for drop in aprerage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v while cranking replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor.

Did you add gas additive and run motor prior to storage? If not Gum in carb could be the problem.If it won't kick over it's either gas or spark.Make sure the battery is fully charged,I have used starting fluid to start hard to start bikes with good results.Use Caution Read Directions.Good Luck
