Question about GAS Motorcycles
Posted by Anonymous on
Smoking is a bad sign. Probably damaged the battery and it needs to be replaced. If you are talking about the cable, I would check continuity and if it is grounding properly and potentially replace that . If you suspect the cable, you can check by taking a jumper cable, only clamping the negative terminal and then putting the other negative clamp on something ground, like the engine or frame (try a few different spots). If it starts up fine using using this jumper cable trick, you are not getting good ground.

The problem may be a pinched fuel or vacuum hose, or a weak/collapsed vacuum hose. The problem may be varnished fuel/carburetors. It may be an electrical problem: loose connector or defective conductor. I cannot help you other than this without having the Duc and performing a few tests. The Monsters are fun to ride.

try cleaning the battery terminals, check the battery voltage when you hit the starter, If you run it too long and it isnt charging a good battery you can damage the regulator again, same if you jump it off a car battery, it can cause damage
