Question about Honda VTX 1800 R Motorcycles

1 Answer

My bike stopped running as I was riding. the fuses kept blowing. Put in a fuse, started the bike, got on, stood bike upright and the bike died, blowing another fuse. Took off the power commander and the same thing happened. There was a cut wire to the ECM and that was repaired.

Check all wiring harnesses where the wires are tight together it sounds like you just have another cut wire that you cant seem to find, and please mention if its the same fuse that keeps blowing or is it a different one every time, and if you find no cut wires then double check all the grounds.

How to prevent electrical short


Paul
Somewhere there is a short circuit allowing the current to flow straight to earth on the engine or the frame. Blowing a 10 amp fuse means this is a very heavy current so do not be tempted to either fit a higher rated fuse or bypass the fuse. Almost certainly this would cause burnt out wiring and possibly start a fire.

This happened when you switched on the ignition and before you pressed the starter on one occasion. On other occasions the bike has started before blowing the fuse. This suggests that perhaps wiring with damaged insulation is making and breaking contact.

You said you have a new battery. Is it possible that during the fitting of this some damage was done to the wiring? Do you have a meter or can you borrow one? See if you can find out where this current is running to earth without replacing the fuse. ie check after the fuse with a meter.

At times like this it is good to have a friend that is an electrician to help you check.

Good luck.

No ac nd my fan stop working completely


Fuses blow because of higher than normal amperage in the circuit. Not sure what circuit the blown fuse is for but if it is for the fan the fan may be shorted therefore blowing the fuse. If you put fuse in while the ac was still on try shutting off the ac then putting the fuse in. See if it blows then if it doesn't then turn the ac on and if it blows you have at the very least isolated the system at fault.

Engine hard starts then dies after a few seconds had it towed today after it kept blowing fuel pumpp fuses but it has fuel pressure at the carb


Friend,
Your fuel pump is the answer. It does pump
enough fuel for the engine to cold start or stay
running when started. And as you have mentioned that it kept blowing fuses, means that there is either a short circuit or the pump is jammed and running very heavy,it needs attention of a qualified mechanic.

I have a 91 fzr 600 recently did oil change, spark plugs,didnt ride bike for 2 days then went to ride it today and wont start, thought it was the battery so i jumped it and it started but started running...


you will need to try a new battery, unfortunatly sometimes jumping of a larger battery can spike the regulator, so when the new battery is fitted put a mulimeter across the battery, should read just over 12v engine stopped and rise to 13.5-14v with the engine running.

Take the bike out for a 40 mile ride, new battery, rides great, all of a sudden it runs terrible, it dies out and blows fuses.


possible, rectifier problem , or stator problem.

put a multimeter on the battery, should read around 12v engine not running, with engine running should show 13v or more.

Can a voltage regulator/rectifier if not working properly blow the main fuse. I have a 2002 v-star 1100. I was riding when all of a sudden the bike died on me. I lost all power no light, turn signals,...


YES!
Good link here:
http://www.flygenring.dk/yamaha/artikler/1100ChargingSystem.pdf

Symptoms:
Lights flickering at times and/or battery gets hot to the touch

Problem:
Reglator/Rectifier

When the regulator dies, it allows as much as 19 volts to appear across the battery. This is not good. It will cook the battery and the battery could even explode. Fuse can not stand up to this!

sounds as if you have an issue with the charging system, try using a volt meter to determine if the bike is charging. To do so you will need to access the battery under the seat, with the bike running hook up the volt meter to the battery terminals, at idle you should have around 11volts when reving you should have around 13volts. If not you may have a bad stator or other electrical issues. good luck

Bad battery


though if it was a problem it would have blown the 10amp fuse????Don't rely on on whether the bike will start at a gas station to determine if the charging system is working. Get the multimeter out and do a proper test. Should be getting about 14.5 volts @ around 3K RPM. It's too easy of a test to to just skip. If it is charging then start looking for something else. Was the new battery properly charged to begin with? Loose battery connection? I suppose the GPS could be too much but you said that it was dying last november so I would suspect something else. P.S. you need a properly charged battery to get an accurate reading for the charging test. ,,,
