After twenty mile run bike failed to start.flat battery.replaced with new battery,fault still remains


Sounds like the alternator/stator on this bike needs to be replaced because its not charging the battery.This is why it will die on you after twenty miles, the bike is living off the battery. Charge up the battery and get the bike started,get a voltage meter and read the voltage at the battery terminals. It should be charging up a about 13 to 14.2 volts DC .if not you have your problem.Try taking the alternator out yourself(if so equipped) if this is the case and go to an auto supply store,they might be able to match it saving yourself the expensive trip to the BMW dealership. I believe BOSCH does their alternators and you can avoid the premium price by going around the dealership.Changing the alternator is not that hard to do just take your time with it. Good Luck

Rode home new 883;, next morning bike wouldnt start, battery weak. would not turn engine over. bike is 2009 with 40 miles, bought from dealer


how old is your battery? if it is 2 to 3 years old it may need to be
replaced . charge it up and see if it keeps charge, crank your bike
run it for a short time 4 or 5 min. shut it , and try to start it. if it
drags when cranking go buy new battery.

Bought 18 yr. old grandson his first bike about 3 weeks ago (I'm his grandma). It is a used 2009 HD 883 Sportster. Only had 285 miles on it. First clue to troubles: The first day he rode it, his father...


Yes the brakes will work if the bike does so you can take a breath of relief because there is no brake booster it is just hydraulic pressure from the hand and foot switch. What i think may be happening with this bike is a faulty regulator rectifier. This will cause the battery to die with the key off AND it will also cause the battery not to charge correctly when the bike is running. It may hold a charge but will not charge further. What this unit will do is keep the voltage consistent from the alternator charge.

Burgman 250 will not start


Ck fuses and wire connections first. If no problem seen, get bike running and disconnect the ground cable @ battery. If bike dies the problem generally is in the stator or regulator assembly not keeping battery charged. Bike will run untill the battery is too low to keep the ignition system energized and the bike will die. If it continues running w/the ground disconnected, the battery could have a dead cell which will drain the battery in a very short time whether it is running or not.

Bad battery


Don't rely on on whether the bike will start at a gas station to determine if the charging system is working. Get the multimeter out and do a proper test. Should be getting about 14.5 volts @ around 3K RPM. It's too easy of a test to to just skip. If it is charging then start looking for something else. Was the new battery properly charged to begin with? Loose battery connection? I suppose the GPS could be too much but you said that it was dying last november, so I would suspect something else. P.S. you need a properly charged battery to get an accurate reading for the charging test.
