SOURCE: bike shuts up

not like it was starving for fuel. The running lights and engine lights were on still so i was not without total power. i did get it restarted and brought it home. A few weeks ago when i went to start it i had no power. i thought it was battery but it made no sense. i jiggled some wires and then i got to start. i woudl think it is an electrical short not a battery issue but i need help. ???? where do i look?I doubt its a short. That would most likely cause something to burn up or a fuse to blow. It may be a poor connection. Often times when you have this type of problem it can be traced to a poor ground although it is entirely possible for some other connection to become intermitant. Bikes are subjected to plenty of vibration. If you recall just where you wriggled the wires to get it to work start looking for it there.,,,

SOURCE: Electrical problem

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try recharging the battery again. Remove the connector to the voltage regulator. Start/run the bike. If it lasts more than "3-5 minutes" then you have just confirmed a defective regulator. The voltage regulator would look something like below image.

This page may give you additional insight.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Fuses ok? If you have an alarm installed maybe you need to check it.

Could be the fuel filter but I'd bet money on the fuel tank vent. Loosen your fuel cap and take a ride. Don't take the cap off, just loosen it a bit. If that cures the problem, buy a new fuel cap.

Trouble with Maytag Legacy gas Dryer


Please provide the model number and I will see if I can figure something out.
It sounds like you have covered the common problems. Usually a motor is the cause for this problem, it gets hot and shuts down until it cools off. I have had some problems with the auto dry controls on the Maytags also.
Are you equiped to do some voltage checks if we need too? This would help in knowing where you have power when it quits.
Thanks/Mike

Why when riding along mowing and the blades just quit turning, belt is not off?


If you hit a bump too hard, I believe it's equipped with a shock sensor that shuts down the blades or if you slightly lift off the seat the blades will shut off. If this is the case simply stop and restart the blade switch. Hope this helps

Some bikes have a kill switch that shuts off the power to stop the engine should it tip over or be in a crash. It would need to be reset if this were the problem and if so it sounds like the switch is too sensitive or faulty.
Resetting an ECM usually involves disconnecting the battery for a few minutes then reconnect and start the motor and just let it idle. Don't rev it. They usually reset in a minute or so during idle. If you drive it right away it could take 15 minutes to reset.

I would check your connections and grounds. I would check the voltage of the battery with the bike off and then compare it to the voltage when the bike is running to see if the battery is charging. Your may have enough voltage to run lights but not enough amperage to crank. Is the new battery full of acid? silly question but I have seen this happen before, the guy puts the wrong amount in it.
Check your fuses too. I would verify that its charging before trying to chase down any current draws of shorts.

Battery drained while riding


Sounds like you either have corroded wires going to your battery or your alternator is not properly charging the battery. Get the bike to an autozone and ask them to put their tester on it.

please mark this as a fizya! thanks
