Question about 2006 Aprilia Scarabeo 500

1 Answer

I let the bike stand idle to long and had to recharge the battery. I removed the battery to charge it. Per the owners manual, Reconnected the Positive lead 1st then neg, got a spark off the neg terminal and blew the 15A fuse that controls the Voltage Reg to: injection, stop light/ignition. Replaced fuse, Go to start, blew the same fuse. As you know the kick stand has to be up and the brake engaged before the motor will start. Any combination brake then kick stand or kick stand then brake causes the fuse to blow before the starter is engaged. What am I looking for?

Hi, Tteboe3500 you have a dead short which is usually the easiest to find. Using a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder, start probing the wire leaving the fuse holder about an inch away the test light should illuminate, keep probing towards the ignition switch until the test light no longer illuminates you are now very close to the short.

SOURCE: starting problem on rs125

Based on your description, its sounds as though you have a starter or starter selnoid problem. The starter selnoid is not engaging the engine at first and then when it does, is nort passing enough current through to the starter motor to get the job done.

SOURCE: 2006 Aprilia RS125 doesnt start

Hi .... Try switching the petrol off just prior to stopping the engine and start up again with the petrol OFF. There's enough petrol in the carb to start the bike. A good battery should show over 12 volts. Take the plugs out and give them a good clean or replace them. Is there a petrul pump fitted ? A two stroke needs to be ridden quite hard to maintain efficeincy, higher revs etc ........ let us know how you get on ?

SOURCE: battery will not take a charge

if your battery wont take a charge GET a new one, IF you tried jumping it from another vehicle and it is still totally dead (no lights or anything) then its a fuse.

SOURCE: When i press the ignition switch in i hear a tick but will no ign

This is usually a weak battery, dirty battery connections or both. In some cases the solenoid for the starter is bad requiring the starter to be serviced or replaced.

What type battery for powershotA480


Your camera uses 2 AA batteries, but if you use Alkaline batteries they will drain very fast. You are better off buying rechargeable batteries as you can recharge them several hundred times, cheaper than Duracell or Energizer Alkaline batteries in the long run. If you buy rechargeable batteries make sure you get a high mA capacity the higher the mA which stands for Milliamp Per Hour the longer the battery will last in terms of a charge.

08 gsxr turned off while idling and wouldn't turn back over


When the engine is idling, the alternator is not charging. Starting the bike will drain a weak battery. A fast idle (1000 rpm or so) will quickly recharge the battery. If the battery is dead and the alternator is not charging the bike will not run. Check the connections at the battery. Remove and clean them. Check the main fuse and all other fuses. (The temp indication may be a false reading due to other problems.)

Hi, Anonymous if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 3 years or older when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

Runs without plugwires on shuts off when you put it in gear


Your cycle runs when you pull off one spark plug wire per cylinder. There are two spark plugs per cylinder and you did not remove both . Therefore you still have one spark plug on each cylinder firing to run the machine. Your motorcycle is also equipped with a side stand safety switch. Your bike will run on the side stand . But, if you put the bike in gear with the side stand down it is designed to turn off the motor. This is so you do not drive away with the stand down and loose control of the motorcycle on your first left hand turn. Get in the habit of putting your side stand up before putting the bike in gear and your problem is solved. Read your owners manual.

You may have a simple problem with water in the electrics.

IF you have no spark at the sparkplugs.
Disconnect your battery.
Check voltage and recharge if necessary.
Check the fuses, (as per Owner's Manual) as water in connections are akin to a short circuit and fuse's blow to prevent component damage.
Remove sparkplug leads and spray some water repellent agent like WD-40 or RP7 into them and shake out. Spray a liberal amount onto sparkplug tops (do not remove plugs at this stage). Replace plug leads.
Spray around the joins of the handlebar switch cluster that has the Engine Stop button.
Spray around the ignition coils and CDI unit.

Some water may have entered your magneto/generator cover and contacted the stator coils and pulse coil. This provides the power to recharge your battery and run the lights. You can remove the generator cover and spray around the back edge of the rotor to displace any water present...let stand on sidestand to help with drainage.

Reconnect charged battery and briefly check function of all lights, then try the starter.

If you HAVE spark but still not starting, likely to be water in the fuel system.
Place bike over a tray or work area.
Turn fuel tap off and disconnect fuel hose.
Place glass beaker under tap and turn on to reserve...check fuel for water at the bottom of beaker under fuel. Drain and replace fresh fuel if water present.
Undo drain plugs beneath each carburetor and let fuel drain, replace fuel hose and turn fuel tap to reserve and let a small amount of fuel to run thru lines and float seats to flush. Turn tap OFF and replace carby drain plugs.
Take out air filter element and check for moisture, blow dry if present, wipe out airbox.
Might be an idea to drain and replace your engine oil (water in oil will give it a milky look) once she's been warmed up again. Goodluck and cheers.

Fault with electric start on my Suzuki GSF 250 Bandit


Check that the clutch is in, kick stand up, and neutral light ablaze. Then try your start button. When you had it running and hit the button, the starter engaged at a slower speed then the bike engine was turning, which led to the stall. The stall means your starter works. If the starter works when the engine is running then it is wiring. Check your kick stand wiring along with the clutch wires which plug in on the handlle bar or where the clutch cable enters the engine.
