Question about 2000 Honda Valkyrie Interstate
Hi, The radio on my valkyrie interstate is not powering up. The previous owner said it works but no luck. The bike seems to have been in the weather but it has very low miles on it. The switch buttons seem solid. The digital display illuminates as it should. I checked the fuse box and all is well. The radio is under the seat with an octopus of electric lines coming out of it. Any suggestions on isolating the problem? Thanks!! @
Hi, Mike21788 for this scenario you will need your service manual, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Honda, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

I'm thinking your battery is the wrong ah. 8.6 for that type motorcycle is quite low. I would expect around 12 - 14 ah. Actually you should not be draining the battery though. The problem may be in the alternator assy its self. Have you checked all three legs of the charging system coming from the stator? I have found the stator to be the culprit many times in this situation. The bike should not be draining the battery at all if the alternator is charging correctly. What was the oem battery ah that you replaced?

your low speed jets are stopped up ,the carbs need cleaning, go to walmart a buy some SEAFOAM, poor it in your gas tank ,start it up on choke, and when it start ot clear up take it off of choke, or ride it until it clears up. after it starts running good get it synchronized

Pull out on the lever and push it toward the front of the bike, hard if necessary. Rock the bike while pushing. If the bike comes out of gear it should start. The bike will not start while the lever is up.
Probably need to replace the switch behind the lever. Don't test it, just replace it.

Power valves on different 2 strokes operate differently. A yamaha version does a self diagnostic because its a cylindrical type, so cleans off excess carbon. The type that the honda uses is a butterfly type and so a diagnostics / cleaning action is not performed on start up, but does require cleaning @ the recommended service intervals. See NSR-world.com for further info.

Is this a factory install?
Based on what you are saying here ... I suspect you have a faulty ground. Make sure you have a good ground.
You can test this by making a temporary ground with a wire connecting from the metal case of the radio to the neg side of your battery. This may not be a teller since you say the trouble is intermittent. Your radio will probably never give you the chance to check it peacefully. It will always work when you have the tools out!
If in doubt, install a good ground. Use a very flexible wire, at least #14 or heavier, stranded or woven NOT solid. Fasten the new ground onto the metal case of your radio - make sure you don't create any shorts. Hook the other end to a known good ground on the frame, NOT the handlebars. To make absolutely sure, go to the neg side of your battery with your new ground. Also, make sure your antenna has a good ground and is not shorting to that ground (bad leadin wire).
Let me know if this works for you.
