Hi,
It sounds like you may have damaged the stator when it dropped and cracked the housing. You will have to get the generator tested to make sure its charging. If not then it may have shorted out the rectifier.

Just check the oil pressure switch wire hasn't come off, or the switch is not broken.

If you need more information just let me know.

Thanks

Jason

Sounds like the oil sensor is shorted to ground
this is causing a parasitic drain on the battery
trace the circuit to find the damaged wire
cut and splice a new section and you should be good!

I am thinking of buying a Piaggio X8 125 with 50k km (31k miles) What should I look out for?, any advice appreciated, thanks


1. Check fluid levels--Oil, brake fluid, coolant levels, etc. Also if you can look at the oil and its condition. A bike with fluid levels that haven't been maintained, especially the oil could mean trouble.
2. Tires- Tires are often neglected, but can run a few hundred bucks right off the bat. Make sure they are not brittle or cracked, no nails, plugs, or flat spots. Check the tread life, you can go through tires quick so be prepared to replace them if the tread is low.
3. Chain/belt drive--Rusty chains will need to be replaced, see how much slack is in the chain. Check for kinks in the chain and if possible put it on a rear stand and spin the back tire to see how the chain looks. Properly lubed chains should be free of rust and move smoothly.
4. Frame--Look for damage in the spots on the frame that are most likely to be scuffed up in a crash or drop. Check out the sub-frame on sportsbike as this can be bent(get behind the bike and make sure the rear end lines up over the rear tire) Check the stator cover, and the clutch cover for touch up paint(touch up paint is a sure sign the bike has been down one way or another). Forks, check for leaks or cracked seals, this could be a couple hundred bucks easy.
5. Fairings--Make sure they line up and match up. Slightly different colors could mean replacements from a crash, misaligned fairings could mean the same. Beware of "custom" or new paint jobs, most of the bikes I have seen repainted were repainted because they were down and the fairings were bondoed instead of being replaced. A warning with street figher/***** bikes that weren't originally a ***** bike. Most bikes that are streetfightered have been wrecked and instead of replacing parts, the bike was chopped down to a fighter, just know that going to look at a fighter.
6. Handle bars--Check the ends of the bars for scraps, another sign the bike has been down. Turn them both ways as far as possible, there should be some clearance on the gas tank. Check to make sure all levers move freely and the throttle is smooth both ways.
7. Pegs--look over the pegs, see if they are scrapped, another way to tell if the bike has hit the ground.( Also with aftermarket levers, another red flag that they might have been replaced due to a crash).
8. Electronics--Check to see that all lights and blinkers work, check the condition of the battery, and all wires leading to it. A dead or weak battery is another 90 bucks or more to have to replace.
9. Forks- Check to see that the forks are true and straight. Check the fork seals for leaks, any oil coming out of them is a sign they will need to be replaced and it isn't cheap, also if the fork oil leaks down to the brakes a rebuild on them is necessary as well.
10. On the bike--If riding, and you are comfortable, let go of the bars and see if the bike rides straight at 20-30 mph, it should, also check for any excessive shaking. Check brake condition, and acceleration. Also if possible hear the bike start up from a cold start. You can hear a lot of weird noises on startup that won't be there once the bike is warm. Let the bike run to operating temperature and make sure it doesn't overheat and that the radiator fan(if applicable) turns on.
11. ASK ALOT OF QUESTIONS-- The best thing to do when buying something used is to ask every question you can think of. I.E. How long have you owned the bike? What problems are you aware of? When was the last oil change? Valve adjustment? Does it pass inspection? Has it ever been down, or dropped? Asking these questions will help you get a feel for the buyer and a lot of times people are 100% honest about things like that, but you won't know until you ask.

Dropping cylinder at 10rpm and possible generator /stater problem


It seems the charging system of your bike is not working
Recharge the battery and thn fit it in the bike and start it and check the charging rate.
Remember with lights 'on' it drains power from the battery butthe charging system of theengine takes over i.e. if its working alright, with your explanation, its for sure the charging system is not functioning.
Chekc the altenator and the rectifier.

Battery icon flashing


Your Stator shorted out and is charging to hi, 17-18 volts. Turn your key off, put your brake on (on the left handle bar) lock in place. Push your override (yellow button on left handle bar) wait about 5-10 seconds, now turn on your key and start the bike. Keep pushing the overide button once v2.1 goes away and you'll get into the voltage of the bike. rev it up to 4 or 5000 rpm, what is the charge, my guess it is around 17 or 18 volts. rebuild your stator

Where is the fuse panel on a 2000 intruder VL 1500


the fuse panel is under the speed sensor cover. it is the chrome cover on right side of bike. the same cover you have to remove to put oil in it. it is the one that does not have the oil sight glass in it. only 2 allen bolts hold it on.

Have 2000 tt600. Battery sems fine, but when i try to start it, all i hear is a click, but the starter motor does not turn over? any suggestions on what could be the problem?


First thing to do is clean the battery termnials check the fluid level of the battery if it is full charge the battery and then try again if it starts then your battery is low, take the battey to a shop and have it load tested to see if it's any good. If the battery is more than 3 years old then it has worn out. If you buy aa new battery buy one that is a dry cell. it is more money but lasts longer and if hit it won't leak out acid and you never have to put water in them. If that does not fix them problem post here for more help.

I purchased a 1995 yamaha virago and put a new battery in it before I drove off with it. On the way home between towns it cut out on me. I tried to restart but the battery was run down. I know vehicles...


I dont believe this bike has a rectifier, just a generator, located in the bottom forward engine case. You can test the generator by charging the battery, put the bike on the center stand, attach a DC volt meter to the pos and neg of the battery and run the engine, the volt meter will show 13.6 - 14 volts if the generator works. It is possible you got a battery with a dead cell causing it to never get fully charged... sometimes they're dropped during shipping and other handling. charge the battery and check the voltage, if it seems good, take it out bring it to an auto store and ask them to load test the battery, theyll do it free at most places. if it fails...the battery you got was a dud, take your receipt to the store you bought it and explain what happened and they should honor their service and replace it free. good luck. if the bat is good and the alternator is not charging there are a few other directions to go...

Yzf 600r Wont hold a charge? does it have something to do with the magneto or generator?I bought the bike back from a friend and he wrecked it and put a new generator cover on so he changed everything over...


It's not charging, or the battery won't hold a charge? Get a multimeter and test the generator with the bike running, should be 13.5-14.5 volts. If you get this, you need a battery, if not need to find the bad component in the charging system.
