You killed it. There are diodes that are involved and can be damaged, investigate those.

What could be causing my van to pull so much power


First of all, is alternator charging the battery. Battery voltage when engine is off, should be at least 12.6 or better at battery posts.less than 12.4 with engine off. Battery is going bad. When engine is running at battery should be at least 13.8 to 14.2 or more if alternator is charging. You can go to any auto parts store, and get the charging system checked for free Advanced auto, Auto-zone, ETC, Good-Day! if battery and alternator are good. Heres how to check for a current drain. Disconnect negative terminal from battery, Hook a test light to the negative cable. connect opposite end of test light to battery negative post . wait at least 5 minutes, with test light hooked up. if light is on. Then start pulling fuses in fuse box, when the light goes out. thats the problem circuit.

Starter could be jammed have you tried to pop start it? Are you getting power to the starter? Kill switch isnt on is it? Never should have left the dealer it was running when you took it there.

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.

I noticed my truck didnt want to start like it had a weak battery. I drove it anyway and first my abs light came on, then I started losing all my accessories like radio power windows, etc. I got towed home...


All of you accessories can't run from the battery. The alternator has to produce 13-14 volts to you battery to keep the battery charged fully so all the accessories will work. Soon as a power source is powered on it will drain the battery quickly if the alternator isn't putting out. I would change the alternator. Honestly, If you have a shop close by that rebuilds alternators, this is the way I would go. Here in my home town, a rebuilt is $95 as a rebuilt from auto zone is $140-170 and comes with the same warranty. I use a rebuild shop for all alternators and starters. Cheaper and have never had to take one back compared to auto stores.

Wont charge battery


Take the battery to any auto zone or similar store and have it tested first. If the battery is good and yur bike won't charge it then the charging system of your bike is the problem and will require service.

Bike stalls out in neutral and wont start back up while riding


It sounds like the battery may be bad in spite of Auto-Zone's pronouncement. The connectors to the battery may be bad enough to make a poor connection to the battery posts. Is the battery water level up to the line in each cell?
Re-jet one step bigger as the baffle removal will make it run lean.

Bike hasn't been running for months. change of owner. low batt. Boosted off truck. All four cable leads conected, ''truck to bike'',truck started, main fuse blows: 1-stator coil de-magnitized ...


First of all, when boost starting a bike from a auto make sure the auto is NOT running. The auto battery has more than enough power all by itself.

The most likely is 4) None of the above. The truck's charging system put more than 30 amps into the bike's electrical system and blew the fuse.

Get a new bike battery and fully charge it. Then go from there. If you really want to see if the bike will run before buying a new battery go ahead and hook up the cables to the truck battery and try it with the truck off.

A faulty alternator/regulator/rectifier should have no effect on the bike actually starting or turning over. Only the output of the charging system would be affected, possibly causing the bike to die when the cables are removed. My '78 Honda would not run at all without battery power, not sure if the Kawasaki is the same or not.
