Question about 2000 Honda Valkyrie Interstate

Open Question

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 fues 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!!

    What sound is coming from the speakers ?? if the radio is having an internal component issue, you should still be able to hear something, even a crackle or hum coming from the speakers, especially turning it on or off...if you hear anything, even faintly, that'll eliminate the speakers as the problem...that would point to the antenna as the problem...let me know

SOURCE: charging problem on 2002 929 rr1 blade

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?

SOURCE: Backing up with reverse gear bike just stopped. It

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.

SOURCE: NSR250 MC21 92 Not hitting power band, fine until around 7000rpm

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.

SOURCE: problems with 1999 valkyrie interstate Radio

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.

I have a 1999 Valkyrie Interstate. How can I check to see if the alternator is working.


The fastest way is to get a multimeter and set is on DC volts, get to the battery and start the bike place the leads of the meter on the battery posts and rev the motor to about 2000 RPMs you should get a reading of 13-15 volts if the system is working if you dont get that reading then you will have to check the stator,and regulator.

The Valkyrie is notorious for burning the vacuum lines on the inside of the intake manifolds. They burn, get brittle, and break from back firing up the manifold caused typically by an aftermarket exhaust system. Stock bikes burn the tubes more slowly. Check all six tubes and replace this will probably solve the problem.

You have a very poor wiring job up on the front somewhere, is my guess. My advice is unless it is a genuine wire harness, remove it and reinstall with fresh tight sealed connections. You may want to look at your ignition switch as well ...
