SOURCE: Battery termanals coming lose

this time there was alot of smoke coming from under the seat. I found the Start Mod had a melt down. Now I'm still waiting for part to come. Has anybody had a similar issue? The bike is an'06 TT with only 710 miles. I bought it used with 660 mile on it.Let me start by saying that someone is not getting the the battery terminals tight to begin with. These are just bolts not Ridley bolts and should be tightened as you would tighten any bolt. If you find that bolts are continually getting lose there is a product called Loc-tite that can be applied to the threads to prevent loosening. The smoke is a different matter. Generally when this happens we find aftermarket lighting or changes in the original wiring. You now need to see a mechanic,

SOURCE: New Battery. After riding Bike for several hours,

Faulty Stator( alternator).When the bike is running, at that time its continuously charged by the stator.
----------- In your case the stator is faulty, so its not charging the battery to make your bike run.Get the stator and regulator/ rectifier checked by the local garage, and replace the faulty one.------- Any of the one is fauilty, that is confirm, but getting it checked should help.So you can replace as per that. ----------------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

G'day,i have a 05 wr 450, when out riding my battery went flat, the old girl still had balls for a while then i lost it , felt like she was missing, would the batt cause the the bike to lose power ?...


charging system has failed. In that case, the battery will run the bike until it's dead. If you can shut off your headlight, it my go a bit farther, but you need to fix the charging system.

99 gsxr 750 losing power after 10k rpm if you have


The carburetor jets, there are 3 bands; A low, mid range and high range rpms. 10k would fall in the Mid range power. I would let the bike warm up a little bit and tweak the middle knob on the left side of the bike and keep in mind you need the right mixture so turn it quarter turn one way at a time per testing the mid range rpms while riding, tweaking 1/4 turns in between tests. If it gets worse, turn it the other direction until you find that sweet spot in the mixture of fuel/oxygen.
