SOURCE: charging system

I think 13.26 is very good for a bike of it's age. Especially charging a bigger cell battery such as a car battery! I wouldn't worry to much about your charging system looks to be doing just fine. almost sounds like your bike needs to be taken out for a Relief of sitting run.

SOURCE: battery does not hold charge new battery fitted

Sounds like a charging issue. First check all wires and make sure they are clean and making good contact, then check for proper voltage at the battery. I ride a harly so I don't know the exact voltage to look for but it most likly is around 13V at the battery if it isn't you need to look at your voltage regulator and stator.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: new motorbike battery wont stay charged.

Your bike's alternator probably isn't recharging the battery. You can check output yourself if you have a VOM or have a shop test it.

How long does it take to charge battery for the first time?


Depends on the battery... a "toy" battery may only need an hour or two....a motorcycle battery may need 12 hrs @ 4 - 6 amps - depending on the type of battery....a car battery may need 10 amps for a short time (4 hrs) because they come pre-filled and charged. I NEVER depend on the "charge" of a new automotive battery (of any type)..I always charge them for at least 4 hrs @ 10 amps before initial use!! ...they seem to last longer

BUT - AS a RULE = 10 hrs @ 10% of the rated amperage...

99 kawasaki ninja EX250 motor swap for a 98 NINJA EX250 MOTOR


I would try charging the battery. Take it off and put it on a slow trickle charge overnight. Batteries usually only last 3-4 years if it is an acid battery.

Is the 10 amp se-40ma battery charger to big for my motorcycle battery can it over heat or over charge it


A battery that might sit for a month at a time, would only need a trickle charge or about 1 amp, a charger of this type can stay hooked to the battery for the whole month. A 10 amp would be for a quick charge or only about 4 - 12 hours depends on how fast the battery lost the charge. A 10 amp charge would cook the battery if left for days.

alternator's go bad - even some new ones are no good - prolly a rebuilt one gone bad - test it -- charge the battery - - then drive it in the day time to the local advance or auto zone - they will test ur charging system - also - take down the vin number and ask the local dealer if there have been any recalls or service bulletins - on ur car -

My honda vf 1100 honda wont start after riding,is there a charging problem ? Thanks


Chances are, YES.

Simple chraging system test:
Start motorcycle
Turn HIGH BEAM light ON
Run 10 minutes or until warmed up good
Rev the RPMs to at least 3,000
Remove the positive battery cable

If the motorcycle dies, then there IS a charging sytem failure.
If the motorcycle continues to run, have the battery checked at a local parts store. If they do not know the Cold Cranking amps tell them 235.

If it is a charging system failure, send another question and I can walk you through diagnoses and repair.

The motorcycle dosn't run


You probably need a new battery. It is not uncommon for them to just be dead one day .  Check the razr website for replacement parts.  Thanks!
