Sound like alternator is not charging the battery. Crank the engine up and while running disconnect the positive terminal from the battery. If the engine dies, you have an alternator problem.

2011 KTM 250 SXF will not idle


Hi, Anonymous if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

Get it relaced as that is not what I would expect to happen. Even with a flat battery, you should not have a white screen.

I purchase s10-3 netbook. i had problem with its battery which only runs 2 hours if it is fully charged. please assist!


How long have you been using the netbook? If it's brand new, then your battery life is too short. First of all, remember the following for ensuring that your battery performance is optimal:
1. A new battery pack must be fully charged before it is put into use.
2. A new battery pack needs to be fully charged and discharged a few times before it starts performing at full capacity.
3. Batteries discharge when left unused. If you intend to store the netbook for a while, make sure that the battery is fully charged before you do so.
4. Fully drain and fully recharge your batteries every few months.

If your netbook is new, then try one or more of the following and see how your battery performance gets affected: 1. Turn down the LCD brightness of your portable device.
2. Use built-in power management on your portable device.
3. Turn off LCD or other unnecessary accessories when not in use.
4. Set screen saver blank to 1 to 2 minutes of your netbook.
5.. Add more RAM if you can, as this will reduce the usage of the hard drive which exhausts the power quicker.

Hope this helps.

My 7540 shaver will only start when it is fully charged. After the first shave it will start only start if I lossen the foil. Do I need a new battery?


Hi, yes these batteries only have a limited life unfortunately. To prolong the life of your battery, always ensure the batery is completely flat before charging and always charge fully but do not leave charger on after charge has completed.
Hope this helps

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!
