Replaced battery bike started seveal tmes during a 2 week period and now it will not start. it will only make a clicking sound and it seem's to be coming from my starter. i purcheased another harley...


Yes, you need to check your charging system. First remove the battery and fully charge it (overnight) then refit, and start the bike. With the engine running at about twice the idle speed check the voltage at the battery. It should be approx 14 volts DC. If it is lower than 12.5 you should look first at the voltage regulator and rectifier. The symptoms you describe lead me to believe your charging system is the culprit. It may also be be your alternator, but check the regulator and rectifier first (cheaper)

Zx6r 2004. Bike ran great for two months. Went out to dinner last night and came out to my bike not starting. Trailered it home, started when taking off trailer. Went for a 15 minute ride and parked it....


Hi, Matt it saddens me to inform you that you have to put on your Battery Priest Robe and prepare yourself for the Ceremonial "LOAD TEST" but before you begin, maintenance type batteries must be topped off with distilled Holy Water and all batteries must present their terminals to the battery charging altar to receive the electrical infusion of Holy Ions until they have reached a 100% full charge of 12.5 volts or better.
Below is a quick and easy test to see if your battery is in good condition or needs Last Rites and must be replaced.
1. Start by disconnecting the spark plug cables.
2. Adjust voltmeter to DC volts 20-volt range
3. Place the voltmeter leads to the battery terminals.
4. Turn the run/off switch to run.
5. Turn the ignition switch on and press the starter button.
6. Watch the voltmeter as your engine turns over for 15 seconds.
7. If the voltage drops below 9.5 volts, the battery is faulty and must be replaced.

2007 kawasaki ninja 650r. when I goto start the bike it makes a clicking sound but wont start. the clicking isnt from the starter it comes from an area by the battery.


Sounds like your hearimg the solinoid clicking, basically it makes the connection from the start button to the starter. It's often mounted right next to the battery as well. Now if your sure the battery is good and fully charged fallow the positive cable from the battery to solinoid, from solinoid to starter motor, and check each connection is tight and clean from corrosion. Also fallow the ground from the battery to the frame check for the same. If all look up to par, jump start the bike from a battery charger or vehicle with cables. If it starts, recheck the battery voltage.

Why does the 30 amp circuit breaker behind the battery box on my 1990 fatboy click once when i push the ignition button? The bike won't start.


Try to reset the circuit breaker. also check for an earth fault on the starter motor .If this is not a circuit breaker and is a relay, you should make sure everything is ready for a start, (ie : in neutral, sidestand up and clutch in and that the battery is charged.) the neutral light being "on" doesn't mean it is in neutral. I hope this helps.

My kawasaki zx12 wont turn on.i've check the batery cables and ignitoin.it happened when i installed a new battery


A couple of things that may sound trivial or silly, but check and make sure your kill switch is in the start position.
Check your fuses to make sure they are all still good.
Make sure that when you turn the key you get a neutral light, if not select neutral and try to start it again.
Check you battery is fully charged, a battery that is below charge won't start a bike like it will start a car.
Did you disconnect any other wires if so reconnect them.
Do you have fuel in the tank?

I keep trying to get it to turn over but it keeps clicking and wont turn over. im thinking its the starter but it worked fine yesterday i had to jump it and it would turn over yesterday. i left it in the...


Most likely it is your battery. If it started when you jump started it then the battery was too weak, and it won't hold a charge, so when you park it overnigt it is not strong enough to start the bike. You may have loose or corroded cables and that can lead to a weak battery because it wasn't getting charged like it should. Unfortunatly when bike batteries get that weak they usually need replaced. Unlike a car battery they can't take the punishment of improper charging.

C-50 wont start. Had bad battery on a trickle charger. Took to friends house. Went to leave n battery was dead. Took it home n charged it. Brought it back n won't start. Battery has charge but the bike...


Chances are the battery will no longer hold a charge. An internal short could be why. Bike batteries seldom last more than two years. How old is the battery? Jump the battery from your car battery. If the starter works, the battery is bad, not the starter. You DO have water covering the top of the plates in each battery cell don't you? Please rate my answer, thanks.
