Check the fuses. Check the battery with a hydrometer. Barring that, short across the battery terminals to check the level of spark. Check the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Chances are that the battery just will no longer take a charge.

Battery will not fully charge. is replacement battery available?


You need a new battery if your alternator is putting out 14.5 volts you can try a charger just make sure you disconnect both cables and try a charge of a charger if it still doesn't take you most likely have a dead cell which may as well be a dead no good battery

No electrical power on my 03 yamaha R6 with a brand new fully charged battery


Hi, Brian and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

I have a 2001 Yamaha R6, I'm having troubles


Without having a good battery that is fully charged and a load tester like they have at autozone your not going to find out. But the good news is that you can charge your battery and then take the bike there and they can check your charging system for you there for free.

2008 yamaha R6 YZF: i have to use jumper cables everytime to start it everytime. i brought battery to be tested. they said battery was good, and recomended a charger. i purchased charger and charged over...


It sounds like the battery you are using doesn't supply enough power to start the bike. Using jumper cables starts the bike because of the additional power you are supplying it. Make sure you are using the correct battery. Check to see if there is a more powerful battery available for purchase.

You have many options.
-bring it to a dealership and have them charge / test it.
-buy a charger yourself and charge it.
-buy a trickle charger and charge it yourself.
-buy a brand new battery and not worry about it for a couple years

I try to start the bike kill switch is on. all i hear is tickin under seat. the last few days bike has had a lazy start. just got it tuned up completely even put new clutch


Sounds like your battery is run down and the starter relay is clicking. Put it on a charger and see if it will start. If the battery doesn't hold a charge, it may be time for a new one.

I just put my battery in the bike. I went to start it up, it powered up but when I went to start it up it clicked off.


The battery has to be fully charged on a trickle charger before putting it into the bike. The charging system in a bike is small compared to a car and does not keep the battery fully charged. Therefore, it is a good idea to put a trickle charger on it when it is idle.

Bike was left on and battery fully discharged. It


Were you having trouble with the battery before this incident? If not, then charge the battery with a charger...NOT a trickle charger...for 12 hours. After this, check the voltage with a volt-ohm meter, it should read 12v -14v. Install in the bike, connect and check it again with the volt-ohm meter, it should hold the same reading as off the bike.

Try to start the bike, if it starts, check the battery again, now it should read 14v or a little more. Turn everything off and try to start it again. If it starts, the battery is still good but don't leave it on like that anymore.

If you get anything less than 12v after ther charge, the battery most likely has a dead cell and needs to be replaced.

Batteries dead


Hi,
You bike is equipped with a 12 volt battery. The best way to charge these is to use an automatic charger that will shut off when battery is fully charged. I usually charge mine on the 2 amp setting (trickle).
Depending on the charger, you may need to pick up some smaller clamps as most chargers' clamps are too big to clamp on motorcycle battery posts.
Hope this helps

Strting problem on my wind 125


what else could it be? I'm with stupida dead battery WILL NOT be recognized by a battery tender thats why the light wont come on. Are you trying to jump the bike using a car that is TURNED OFF? You can hook the 2 batteries together and that will help equalize your bike battery enough that the battery tender will recognize that you are indeed connecting it to a battery or you can buy a battery charger and charge it for 20 minutes (or barrow one) which will be more than enough for the battery tender to recognzie the battery. *edit I should mention that the reason a battery tender wont recognize a dead battery is it must see (feel) electricity from the battery. I dont know all the exact properties as in what votage it must see but if it doesnt see it it thinks its not a battery. A charger will try and charge it no matter what it may be. I mean you connect a charger to a metal bar and it will try to charge it. oh if you hook the two batteries together im not sure the bike will start though it may. I have never tried it with a bike but at work we connect two forklift batteries together for 30 minutes and that gives it enough of a charge for our battery tenders to recognize that its charging a battery.,
