Voltage regulator may not be charging...gain access to battery and take reading with key off ..should read 12.6v or better...then turn on key and see if lights put on a load and voltage drops..then start engine and crank to 300rpm and with votmeter you should see it raise uo quickly to about 13.5 or 14v and immediate drop back down to about 13v ,,,if you got a decent battery,,,this will prove that the regulating system works. if not your stator is bad...find the connector to the stator and check any two wires leading to the stator for .1to1ohm this is a good reading, if not stator is bad. you said you had 4v is that correct? because if it is, your battery is shot and needs replacement.

My battery on my 94 Honda cbr 600 f2 wont hold a charge I jump it and it will run for a short while then die


With a voltmeter check to see if terminals show several volts higher than battery specs when bike is running. If so then replace battery. If not have charging system checked out.

How to determine if I have a Battery issue or a Charging issue with a 2003 H-D FXDXT? What should the Voltage of a "fully charged" 2 year old OEM H-D Battery be. I have a reading of 12.4/5 Volts. At a


Post by the "Owner". The "Fix" was a New Stator. (Broken Wire).
After recharging the 2.5 year old AGM battery 3 times with acceptable results each time. (13+ volts & 14.5+ Volts at high idle) Purchasing a new AGM Battery, a month & a half of "pulling my hair out, all the "great solutions posted on fixya", being stranded 3 times with a "dead battery", I took the Bike to the Shop/Trained Mechanic. Many Thanks to the Post concerning the broken copper wire & "fixya.com" for allowing me to Post. Thank You all.....

What is the problem? A 2003 FXDX-T with a 2 year old OEM H-D Battery. What should the Volts be on a "fully charged" Battery. I have a reading of 12.4 Volts. At "high idle" the reading is 14.26-27 Volt


With a reading of 14.2 volts at high rev I believe your stator is right on the money.I would say that a new battery is in order.Take the old one out ,charge it overnight,and have them perform a "load test" to confirm before you buy a new one. good luck

1995 Buell S2 Battery will not start the bike


Sounds like the battery is not holding a charge, if you connect a volt meter just after charging you will get a good reading, each cell of a battery is 2.2 volts so you should have a reading of 13 volts. Battery may have a faulty cell, which will drag the other cells down, is the electolite covering the plates in all the cells, this will affect the battery's ability to hold a charge. My Suzuki did this earlier on this year, nearly bought a new battery, checked and topped up the electolite first and its been fine since

Took my bike out, WR450f 07 model, got to the shop...


If the battery is no good , this can cause some of the problems described, as the charge system tries to put out as much charge as it can, and not be able to charge the battery.
Try a volt meter on the battery, should be around 12v engine stopped and rise a couple of volts with the engine running.

Does not run when I push the pedal, it is brand new and has run once for 2 hours on an 18 hour charge, called PP and they told me to move the red pedal wire to the blue location (bypass) nothing happened....


OMG! The exact same situation here! Bought through Amazon, no warranty. I am so bummed. It was rode 5 times by a five year old on flat ground. Now it is a brand new, non operational, made in China piece of $500- junk! I am furious!!!When you press on pedal, nothing happens, fully charged battery, etc. Volt meter even confirmed fully charged battery. What ever happened in your situation? I am so hesitant to buy other parts, or send it here, to put more money into an overpriced piece of ****. Way to ruin Christmas!

John deere l11 weak battery had to jump off the last 4 or 5 times and this time hook up jumper cables and turn the key and get nothing. no lights no click just nothing. tried 2 sets of cables


Remove the old battery and clean the cables and battery posts. Hook a battery charger to it and fully charge the battery. If it will not hold a charge or the problem continues, replace the battery as it has shorted or dead cell. After replacing the battery or if the battery appears good and then runs down suspect the alternator is bad. Check the voltage at the battery with the engine running. You should have at least 13.5 volts on a 12 volt system and 7.5 volts on a 6 volt system.

Bad battery


Don't rely on on whether the bike will start at a gas station to determine if the charging system is working. Get the multimeter out and do a proper test. Should be getting about 14.5 volts @ around 3K RPM. It's too easy of a test to to just skip. If it is charging then start looking for something else. Was the new battery properly charged to begin with? Loose battery connection? I suppose the GPS could be too much but you said that it was dying last november, so I would suspect something else. P.S. you need a properly charged battery to get an accurate reading for the charging test.
