This would run down the battery. So get the alternator of the bike repaired so that it starts charging again. May be the lead got disconnected and there was no need for a new battery.

What to do when motorcycle will not start tipped over tries to start but wont fire up


How old is the battery? You need to check if the alternator is putting out a charge, is the regulator working. A dead cell in the battery will often show a full charge state if you try to charge it. When you try to start the bike the battery is required to give a high charge to the starter. The buzzing you hear is probably the starter solenoid trying to work. I would suggest fit a new battery and if the bike starts OK check out the charging system. 14.4 volts is the normal reading across the battery with the engine running at 5K.

Battery changing


I installed Battery Tender and ran plug to convenient location on side of bike. I keep bike plugged in whenever I'm not riding. If you just need to charge it, remove cover and connect directly to terminals. I'd recommend trickle charge overnight rather than rapid charge.

Electric starter will not switch off, unsure why


Sounds like you had to disconnect the battery to stop the starter from spinning.
I've had that happen quite a few times and heres what i found and did to fix the problems.

1. I had an old american bike in the shop with a low battery. I didn't know the battery was
low when i hit the start button. The starter solenoid stayed engaged, and the starter kept
turning over the motor, I pulled the battery terminal off to stop the power to starter.

I check battery and it was low, i put full charge on trickle charge and then let it sit
a 1/2 hour before i tested it with the load tester.
It failed big time, dropped all the way to bottom of the scale under a load test

Installed a new battery and fixed the problem. The solenoid, start button, kill switch, key switch all works, it was just a low battery.

2. I had a customer call me because he ran out of gas, when he got gas he turned the bike over for a long time trying to fill the carburetors with gas,
Never hold the start button down for long periods of time. He did and the wires got so hot that the positive wire from the battery to the solenoid melted and stayed engaged.

It was an easy fix, replace the melted solenoid, and only hold the start button in 5 second intervals, allowing it to cool in between starts.
Once the bowls were full again and the bike starts, then it only takes about a second for the bike to start so you normally dont hold the start button for that long.

Hope this helps

My bike has a new battery. I ran it a few weeks ago with no problem. Today, it started right up, and then died. When I tried to turn it over, it clicked, and then nothing. I push started it and rode it for...


Did you get your problem fixed. I have a similar one - new battery - started fine several times and now won't start without hooking the battery to either a jump or putting on a charger. If you can help - I am w8bnl at yahoo dot com. Tom - thanks

I have a 1986 Honda Rebel, LOVE IT! It ran fine


Your battery is not being charged, check your alternator or as they call them on bikes your Stator.

Charge the battery then test for voltage, you should have at least 12volts with the engine not running.

Start the bike and you should see over 12volts but no higher than 14.5 volts this lets you know the stator is charging, if not you have to replace it.

Fail to start


I think I would change the petrol in the tank as it may have become a bit stale. Also I would replace the battery.Make certain the replacement battery in fully charged before you try again.

DId you check or rather take the charging rate, how do you know if its charging or not?
You may have to replace the rectifier.
But first test its charging rate.

Bike cranks and wont start


Hi .... Sounds like regulator/rectifier is defective. Fully charge battery and try starting again, place multi-meter across battery and it should show 12.8-14 volts. If it doesn't replace reg/rec unit.
