My1991 mazda 626 will not rev up over 3000 rpm


DO YOU MEAN WHEN YOU ARE ACCELERATING? Or do you mean sitting and reving the engine? If you are just reving the engine in park then the rev limiter is kicking in.

When driving the bike with the lights on it drains the battery and when i go to start the bike again it wont start. I have recently put in a new battery and started putting it on a optimiser when i park...


Have the charging system checked. Most likely you've got a bad stator (the generator), or a bad rectifier/regulator. Your bike's charging system should put out at least 6 amps of DC current, measured at the battery, at roughly 4,000 RPM.
You can also do a quick and dirty check with a regular volt meter by reading the battery voltage with the engine running. Hold the RPM's briefly at about 3,000 and the battery voltage should rise to around 14.5 volts. If not, then the charging system isn't functioning properly.
Keep in mind, too, that letting the engine idle for extended periods of time will kill the battery (even a properly functioning charging system does not put out much current at an idle).

1993 Kawasaki 750R - Model M , charging issue - WEIRD !!!


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, have you checked the 30 Amps main fuse and its holder clips? It would be integrated with the starter relay. The fuse or the fuse holder may have heat related problem(s) causing it to loose conductivity when hot.The fuse may require replacement even if it tests good and/or the fuse holder would need cleaning / crimping. To locate the starter relay (main fuse), follow the battery cable from the + terminal of the battery.

Please postback results.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
