Sounds like your battery is dead. It may hold enough of a charge to start the lights up and horn, but when you put the bike under load (trying to start it) it will go below the necessary volts to start the bike up. Go to a battery store or your nearest auto parts store and have them check out the battery (they do this for free where I live so I hope they do it for free where you are) If they say the battery is fine, check to make sure that all of your connections are good, so that no cables are loose. I am still thinking the battery will need to be replaced. Good luck!

Self start not working

Most, if not all bikes have a safety device installed which prevents the engine from being started when in gear. There is generally another which cuts the engine dead if the side stand is put down when the bike is in gear.
Hope this helps.

Hi, Sudhir in order to diagnose the starter circuit you must start with a fully charged battery, 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a proper load test if necessary. The battery cables and terminals must be clean and tight. The "NEGATIVE" cable is famous for corroding and or breaking inside the harness, check the connectors at both ends. Check your starter relay with a test light for continuity, it could be faulty due to corrosion and sticking in a closed configuration, another claim to fame. Finally, there is the starter solenoid, low battery voltage or faulty battery connections will cause extremely high amperage at the plate and contact shoes and rob the hold in coils of much-needed voltage. In extreme cases, the solenoid plunger plate will literally weld itself to the contact shoes, keeping the circuit closed and thus permanent engagement. Another scenario is unacceptable voltage drop to the starter solenoid from the ignition switch to the starter relay to the starter button, and finally to the solenoid. Remove the green wire from the starter solenoid and hook up the positive lead of your volt meter to the green wire connector and ground the negative lead. Turn on the ignition switch and depress starter button, the voltage reading should be no more than .5 volt less than the battery voltage. If it is more than .5 volt you need to backtrack that part of the circuit with your volt meter until you find the voltage robbing offender. Next remove the 3 screws that secure the solenoid cover and remove the plunger, dress the plate and the contact shoes of arching residue and make sure the contact shoes are tight and secure. If you have done all of the above, replace the green starter button wire, hook up your voltmeter to the battery and check the voltage drop when you start the engine, anything below 9 volts could indicate a faulty battery and a proper load test should be performed. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

How to turn on self-timer

Press left on the multiselector (the one-handed clock icon). Use up/down on the multiselector to select the desired delay. Press the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter. Press the shutter release button all the way to start the self-timer.
Full details are in the "Taking Pictures with the Self-timer" section of the manual (page 32 in this copy).

Bike stops repeatedly after every 2, 3 Kms like petrol is over and starts again in 1 or 2 seconds. i changed my spark plug and its cap, magnet coil but the problem presists.

clean your carburetor and airfilters.then replace Your spark with NGK.i prefer NGK..clean ur fuel tank also maybe some dust particles of petrol can be there in tank also.check the flow of petrol from tank.if problem persists check your starting coil,rectifiers and wiring.and tel me onething at wat speed the bike is getting stopped?mail me

I re-built my custom softtail ('00 Evo-bad oil leak). Now, when I try to start it, the Jackshaft engages the drive and "sticks" in place. It also makes a noise like a "dying battery",...

Ok, it sounds like the proverbial "bad battery" to me. Although you say you measure 12 amp (I think you actually mean volts here) this doesn't tell you the condition of the battery. You can take a 9 volt battery that will not run the device it's in and measure it with a volt meter and it will measure 9 volts most of the time. Now, when you put a load on that battery, the voltage drops to almost nothing. This is because your volt meter cannot "load the battery. The same happens with your bike's battery.

Take your battery out of the bike and take it to an automotive parts store, Ask them to "load test" the battery. They'll charge the battery for a while and then put a "battery load meter" or "carbon pile" machine on it and put a load on the battery exactly like your starter is doing. Only now, you have a meter on the machine to show you what it's doing. You can do the same thing using you voltmeter. Connect it "across" the battery, red probe to positive, black probe to negative and press the start button. If the voltage drops below 10.5 volts, your battery is no good.

I would also suggest that you never use on to the "jump start" battery chargers in an attempt to start your bike. Your newer bike has delicate electronics that can be easily damaged by "spikes" of voltage that these devices are known for creating. You're better off push starting the bike. If the bike won't start with a regular pair of jumper cables and another battery, Go buy another battery, It'll be cheaper in the long run. Those electronics are very expensive and you cannot diagnose them yourself.

Good Luck and Ride Safe

My husband will press on the start and nothing happens. It was just random but now nothing.

Maybe you ought to press the button. No seriously, if everything else on the bike is working correctly, you could have a bad starter relay. There may be more than two relays on the bike but one is a starter relay. When you press the start button, the relay should energize and send power to the starter solenoid. The relay is a cube about one inch in dimension. Usually located under the seat. You'd need a wiring diagram to test to see which wire power from the start button was coming from.

Usually most relays have a schematic drawn right on them. Look at the relay and find the "coil" connections. Using either a test light or a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) , test to see if you're getting power to the "coil" of the relay. Turn the ignition switch on, insert the probe of the test light or meter and press the start button. The test light should light up or the meter should indicate battery voltage at this connection. If so, replace the relay as either the coil is bad or the contacts for the starter circuit are bad. If not voltage, your start switch may be bad.

Good Luck

New stator cover bike wont start

useing a multimeter set to d.c check your charge at the battery whith out the motor running it should read above 12 volts determine the voltage stored in the battery with the meter stil conected hit the start button if the meter shows a dramatic drop in voltage its almost certain that the battery is shot howevwer if the voltage does not drop & it wont start bump start it conect the meter still set on dc increase the revs asyou do this the voltage should climb to 13.50 if it does & maintains 13.50 to 13.65 the chargeing system can be declared ok & you only need replace the battery however if it goes above 14 volts the voltage regulator is faulty & cooking the battery so you will need to replace both

Self timer for the nikon n55

Press the self-timer button just to the right of the LCD panel and confirm that the self-timer icon appears. Press the shutter release halfway to focus and meter. Press the shutter the rest of the way to activate.To cancel, either turn the camera off or press the self-timer button until the self-timer icon disappears.
