Question about 2006 Honda Elite 80

Open Question

I have a 1986 honda elite. The guy I bought it off of put the wrong battery in it, hooking the pos and neg up backwards. I got the correct battery and it starts up but dies as soon as it drains the battery. Voltage to the bystarter is only 6 volts not the 12 volts it is suppose to be when running. How do I know if the rectifier/regulator or the alt is bad since the battery was hooked up wrong? Could it have blown both of them or the rectifier first then the alt? John

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?

Sounds like you battery is shot. Could your battery have been exposed to below freezing weather while not fully charged?? If so you likely froze it this winter and have buckled the plates, If that's a possibility replace it.

SOURCE: 92 nighthawk LED blinker problems.

Honda always grounds the turn signals separately (usually a green wire)not directly to the frame.Not hooking up the running light should not effect anything except forward visibility to other motorists. If you have a two prong flasher relay, go get a cheap flasher relay ($5-$10) and replace it. The only problem I have ever heard of when switching to LED turn signals is a flicker / fast flash instead of a normal slow flash. This is remedied by adding diodes to the wires.

SOURCE: what voltage system does a

Hi, You may confusing with different answers.
It supposed to be 12V. But to make it sure first. Please use your DC volt meter to check output of your alternator / dynamo. Other wise just remove battery terminal then use bulb 12V DC connected to the wires and start your engine ( use kick starter) and see how your bulb work. If your bulb dimmed at a your average or high rpm then your electricity system is using 6VDC.
Regards, Jay

Starter spins correctly when I hook pos to neg and neg to pos


Sounds like someone has changed the starter recently and they have the negative cable from the battery hooked up to the starter solenoid. You need to have the positive cable hooked to the starter solenoid not the negative cable.

Someone hooked jumper box up backwards on van and tried ti start it it ran great before that after it wouldn't start at all changed the computer now it starts runs a few mins then shuts off what could it...


You will have to take it to the Dealer. You may have burnt out or the "Control Module" needs to be replaced or reprogrammed. Make sure the battery has not reversed polarity also.

Battery charged wrong with neg on pos and pos on neg due to walmart putting red cover on neg side of battery. battery changed polarity... so when putting on cables must have damaged car. starter cranked...


Once a battery flips polarity, it's done. You need a new battery.

It's also likely that the starter was running backwards, which probably didn't cause any mechanical damage, but when you try to start it again, pay attention to any weird noises.

Hope that helps.

I bought a 500/1 jl audio amp and also a w7 10 sub


if its cutting off and right back on then check your ground and your power wire makes sure both are connected good and none of your fuse's are blown, either that or you got a wire hooked up backwards in the sub.. but my guess is that the sub is hooked up wrong... that sub should be hooked up in a series or in parallel,

ok if your running just one speaker, it should be hooked up like this and 2 speakers are a different way...

this is parallel :pos to pos , neg to neg, then one wire coming from pos on sub to pos on amp then neg on sub to neg on amp but bridge the amp on your amp should be 2 pos and 2 neg in two different channels take the pos off the sub into the pos on 1 channel and then the neg from sub to the neg on the other channel,

this is series : on the sub it will go pos to neg then the other neg and pos will go to the amp, but make sure the pos and neg r on different sides of the sub, dont hook them both to the same coil

if your need more help give me your email and ill send you a pic of how to do it...
