Question about 2002 Honda VFR 800 ABS

1 Answer

My bike wont start. all there was was a clicking sound, so i took the battery and had it checked. the battery was dead and so i got a new one. Now the battery was installed and it still wont start. The funny thing is that when I hook it up to my truck and jump start it it works just fine. I would ride it around and the park and turn it off and it wont start again.

If you hooked it up to your truck.....you ruined the battery. You may have even damaged some of the charging system.

Put a charger on the battery for two or three hours. Now start the bike up and use a voltmeter to measure the voltage across the two battery terminals while the engine is running around 2000 rpm. The meter should read around 14 volts. If not, the charging system needs to be checked. If the charging system is working properly then yes, something is draining the battery. You will need to check all the wiring and switches to locate the source.

Chances are the battery will no longer hold a charge. An internal short could be why. Bike batteries seldom last more than two years. How old is the battery? Jump the battery from your car battery. If the starter works, the battery is bad, not the starter. You DO have water covering the top of the plates in each battery cell don't you? Please rate my answer, thanks.

Hi ,
Check all connection , fuses .
You may found that while riding a connection got loose and therefore lost the contact and power to the entire bike .
try to source from the battery and make your way to your ignition .

CHARGE BATTERY, THEN START BIKE UP. AFTER RIDING


Sounds like you are not getting a charge from the alternator. You need to check battery voltage with a meter with the engine off, key off. Then again with it running, and the voltage should increase. If not, it's not charging.

Cbr 900rr, bike just stopped running while riding, wont start?


Almost certainly a bad battery. Put a voltmeter on the battery and check it while trying to start the bike. If it drops to less than 10v the battery is dead.

sounds like you have got dead cells in your battery , they wont hold a charge , the loud click was probably the cells in the battery arking and killing the cells off ,id fit a new battery and all should be well.

I have 750 drifter. went to start it and I have lights and electrical but when I push the start button all I get is "clicking" noise. I checked the battery charge and it is full. what else can I check?


I took the battery out and had it tested at a friends shop. Turns out the battery really only had about 9% life left and the "clicking" sound was only the starter relay trying to work. The battery has a dead cell and won't hold charge anymore. Bought a new battery and all is well!
Thanks
