sounds like the charging system is not charging when the battery is low the starter will not disengage properly disconnect battery and charge it while battery is out with bike in a high gear 4th 5th push bike back and forth this should unengage starter once your battery is charged and back in bike if the starter engages and dis engages properly then you will need to test your stator output with a multi meter look on you tube for video to test stator good luck

2006 rt 1200 wont start new battery neutral and first gear dont show on dash


The fact that the neutral light does not show up on the dash may indicate that the gear position indicator is not calibrated correctly. Does the bike start with the clutch pulled in?

More likely to be your ignition coils. They heat up and expand this can cause an open circuit which will close up again when it has cooled down. Although, a bad charging system may cause this problem. Check the battery voltage with engine switched off ( approx 12 volts) and with the engine running (approx 14 volts) If you are getting 14 volts then your battery is dead, if you aren't, then your charging system has a fault.

I just put my battery in the bike. I went to start it up, it powered up but when I went to start it up it clicked off.


The battery has to be fully charged on a trickle charger before putting it into the bike. The charging system in a bike is small compared to a car and does not keep the battery fully charged. Therefore, it is a good idea to put a trickle charger on it when it is idle.

96 cbr f3. removed gauges now bike will not run right.


its probably put the bike in limp mode which limits the bikes performance while being diagnosed for problems.they cant be read now because you have removed the readout from the system. the meter in these bikes are an integral part of the entire elec. system. when you reinstall the meter, it will probably flash a "code" to show the problem it encountered. unhook the battery for about 5 min. then rehook and start bike. after warmup, it should run ok if all systems are goes.

1990 JEEP Cherokee that won't start even after a new battery


It sounds kind of like you have bad alternator. The alternator uses the engines power to recharge the battery. When you replaced the battery the car ran off battery power untill it died. If the car will run while hooked up to another car while being jump started then the problem is deffinetely the alternator..

Please give a good rating, it is very importat to us..

Honda shadow aero 2005 VT750C shifting problem


You have a bent shift fork. This is not a repair job for the amateur. The engine comes out of the frame, turns upside down then the bottom of the gear case gets separated from the top. The entire shift drum, forks and all, gets removed and the bent fork gets replaced. The engine re-assembles in the reverse pattern.

Now what about stressed gears? Any cracked or broken slider gear dogs?

You are going to have at least 75 parts on the work bench. Was the collar on the slider gear on the left side or the right? I am trying to show you why you had best be careful. The shop charges more to fix a box of loose parts than if they fix a gearbox.


Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

Honda Deauville will not start.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The click is significant. It indicates that the starting relay is engaging but for some reason, the starter motor is not cranking. This could either be a faulty starter relay (particularly the contacts) or a faulty starter motor (specifically, the carbon brushes). To determine which:
  • with the side covers off, expose the starter relay particularly the 2 large terminals;
  • have somebody start the bike normally using the key and button start switch;
  • determine if indeed the clicking is coming from the starter relay;
  • while the start button is still pressed, jump the 2 big terminals;
  • if the engine cranks, then the internal contacts of the starter relay are corroded or burned;
  • if the engine will not crank, then the starter motor is faulty or it can not turn the engine..
A few additional ideas:
  • externally charge the battery;
  • drain the tank and carbs of stale fuel;
  • refill with fresh fuel;
  • remove the plugs, center stand the bike, engage 1st gear, rotate rear wheel to exercise engine.
  • Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Are you sure it's the clutch, not a seized brake or something? Seems like it would be really tough to push at all if it's in gear (for any distance, anyway). Possibly to the point of dragging the rear wheel. I've got a 74 CB360, and a new battery is probably a good bet (or just charging the old one if it will hold a charge). The charging system is pretty weak, especially if you run with the headlight on. Best to start with a good charge. After that, you can adjust the clutch cable free play at the handlebar if it's just not pulling enough to disengage. Having the neutral light back will give you some indication of shifting success (as will running the bike and feeling it, probably). My guess is it ain't the clutch, but a dragging brake, which is also easy to adjust, but hey, what do I know? And by the way, good choice in bikes. A mid-70's Honda will teach you more than auto-shop would have anyway. PS- In the interest of science, I just went outside and tried to push the bike in gear. Couldn't do it. I think it's not the clutch.
