I could have sworn I answered this question the other day. It sounds like you have a bad battery. Remove the battery and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them if they would load test the battery for you. Usually when a battery has good connections and does this, it's either badly discharged or a cell is shorting internally resulting in a battery of less than 12 volts. Depending on which cell shorts, the battery voltage could drop as low as six volts.

If the battery checks good, make sure all your connections are good at the battery and starter. Look under the "electrical panel cover" just to the rear of the coil cover and find the starter relay. Turn the ignition switch on and press the start button while holding this relay. It should click once whenever you press the button.

If it does this, look at the end of the starter from the right side of the bike. The end plate of the solenoid is shaped like a pentagon. At the top of this plate, there is a single wire connection. Unplug this wire and connect the red lead of a Digital Volt Ohm meter to the wire. Ground the black lead of the meter and put the meter's function switch in the DC volts, 20 volt range. Turn on the ignition switch and press the start button. You should read battery voltage. If so, your starter is bad.

Good luck
Steve

Headlight switch on makes tail light dim


there must be a short circuit which powers tail lights and brake lights. probably you have a dual filament bulbs which have both brake and tail light together. check for bulb, socket/or bulb housing and harness of that light.

When starting,all lights are on,tail light is dim,when i push the start button i only hear a buzzing low sound.


Sounds like a dead battery to me. To make certain, use a volt meter and connect it across your battery, red lead to positive, black lead to negative. Press the starter button, if he voltage drops below 10 volts, your battery is kaput.

Or, if you don't have a volt meter, take the battery to an automotive parts store and ask them to load test it for you. They'll usually do this at no charge.

Good Luck

Dryer has started to make a loud sqealing when it starts and gets up to speed, the kind of sound a loose fan belt makes on a car, and now just makes a buzzing sound when the button is pushed but dosen't...


If you push the start button and you here a buzzing sound, This sounds like the motor is bad.

Somthing you can try and this might not work. but open the dryer door and turn the drum a littel bit then close the door and try to start it. If it starts running again then you have hit a bad spot on the motor.

If it just still just makes the buzzing noise then the motor is most likley bad.

When start button is pressed, dryer just buzzes. Has worked 3 or 4 times, but its rarely and only occasional. With the fact that it has started it certainly can't be the motor. Have replaced the pig...


This could be your start switch has gone out. That is what it sounds like to me.

Dryer work turn on, buzzes when start is pushed


It may be just your timer switch. Look at all the wiring first. The receptacle to the plug, cord and into the back of the dryer.
