Gold wings are notorious for the carbs going bad if they aren't ridden regularly. The gasoline gets old, the float bowls dry out and the jets get clogged. You can drain the tank and the float bowls and put some fresh gasoline in the bike. But, if that doesn't work, you'll need to have the carbs gone through and cleaned.

Good luck

I stored my mercedes for 4 week and the battery is dead it is normal


Yes, it is totally normal for your Mercedes battery to go dead after 4 weeks of non use due to the onboard computers that drain on the battery. I store my Mercedes for up to 5-6 months at a time. The solution is to install a battery tender that plugs into a power outlet in your garage and this will maintain proper charge in the battery and then will shut itself off until the voltage drops below the threshold again , then will kick on and bring the battery up to full charge. Any auto parts store, ie. Napa, Auto Zone, Pep Boys, etc. carries them. Cost is approx. $35-$45 and take the average person 1/2 hour to install.

I have a 2001 Dyna Low Rider, ever since I put it on the battery tender it just clicks when I try to start it, what could be the problem?


A Battery Tender will not charge a battery. They will maintain a "Charged" battery. Typically, if you put it on a low battery it will stay low of charge. Try cleaning the battery terminals and charge the battery, then turn the Battery Tender on.

Use of a battery tender


No, but keep in mind that the Battery Tender will not charge a low battery. They will only maintain a fully charged battery.

If let my goldwing set 2days with radio pluged up it will kill battery 97 Honda


Your Battery Must Be Weak. Have You Thought About Installing A Battery Tender ? Best Thing I Ever Did. Hooks Up To Your Battery Very Easily. If You Are Driving Every Day, No Need To Plug It In However If You Are Not Going To Ride For A Couple Of Days Just Plug It In. It Will Not Ruin Your Battery And Will Shut Off When It Is Finished Charging. Maintains You Battery For A Longer Life. Walmart, Autozone Has Them For About 30.00

Leaking battery


Yuasa batteries are expensive but with good reason. They are extremely high quality and follow the old adage 'you get what you pay for'.
Cheap batteries appear initial good 'value' but the extra investment will pay dividends long-term, if properly maintained, your Yuasa will last many years.

If you suspect the liquid is acid, neutralize it with some baking soda just to be sure. You don't want that dripping onto anything metal or pain, causing damage.
Once you have it neutralized, wash it out with water.

It sounds like you ride infrequently and bike may have periods of serveral weeks on occasion without being ridden.

My recommendation would be to install a quality replacement (like the OEM Yuasa) then purchase a battery maintainer that you can plug in while bike is not being used. Good maintainers are Optimate and Battery Tender. (I have both myself - I really like the Optimate 4.) Both of these come with a waterproof 'pigtail' harness that you can permanently connect to the battery - then when you put the bike away, you can simply connect up to it without having to remove anything.

Hope this is helpful.

Good Luck!!
