A worn starter will want more power, check the wiring first though, just in case any are not tight enough.

My Whizzer motor bike will fire, but wont turn over and start


If you battery had a standard reading of 11.5 volts that drops down to .5 volts when you put load on the battery, your battery has gone bad. A healthy battery will give you a static reading of around 12.6 volts, and that will drop to about 12 volts when you're starting the bike. Conversely, when the bike is running, you should see 13.5-14.5 volts across the battery terminals. That shows that the alternator is charging and that the battery is good.

I have a vehicle with a battery going south. I have a static voltage of 12.16 volts, and I only get about 13.2 volts across the terminal when the car is running and the alternator is charging the battery. Soon, it will be time to change out the battery.

Hope this helps!

I bought a new battery, the bike road fine for a while the in the middle of my ride it started slowing down to a complete stop. I couldn't start it again, waited for 20mins, started it and it ran...


One explanation for this would be that your charging system is faulty. It is possible that the OLD battery was ok, but was not getting charged by the faulty charge system. You put in a new battery, that is part charged before sale and ran the battery flat because it wasn't charging. If you leave a discharged lead acid bettery for 20 minutes or so, it will pick up a little again and possibly let the bike start and run, but by the time you got home you had killed the battery completely.

All the facts fit, though I'm not promising that it is the problem.

Take the battery off and charge it with a charger. Now, put it back on the bike and run the bike (It should start) While the battery is on the bike, get a volt meter on it. It should read slightly over voltage (doesn't matter if its a 12 or 6 volt system, it will read a little over when the bike is running) when you turn the engine off, you should see the volt meter drop down to the stated battery voltage. If you get no hike with the engine running and drop as you power off, its a good sign the charging system is faulty. A similar test, start the bike, meter the battery and turn on the indicators, stop light and head light to pull as much power as you can, the battery voltage shouldn't dip, because the charge system should compensate. If it does dip, consider this a confirmation that the charging system is faulty.

G'day.
Sound very much like a low charge rate(your bike is not recharging the battery).
You need to have the bikes charge rate checked.
Basically-your bike should charge at a rate of 13.4- 14.2volts(DC) when running.
If it's not- the battery will keep going flat.
The test is performed by starting the bike & placing a voltmeter across the battery to measure the output.
It's a relativily quick & easy test to perform that only takes a few seconds-but if the charge rate is low then its caused usually by the regulator or the alternator(stator).
If you have a multimeter-or know someone who does-then the test is pritty easy & you need to do that before you go any further.
If you do it yourself- set the meter to Volts DC at a range higher than 15volts(if the meter is not auto-ranging) run the bike with the volt meter probes touching the Battery(black probe to battery negative-red test probe to battery posative) & observe the voltage reading.
You want 13.5 to 14.2v.
If you can't do it yourself then an auto-electrician or bike shop should be able to do it while you wait for just a few dollars.(only the test though- if the charge rate is low then you have then other issues to solve)

I hope this was of some help
Kind regards Andrew Porrelli

Pull the spark plugs then go get a fresh set. The bike is probably flooding out. Clean the air filter then spray starting fluid into the filter. Be sure there is gas in the tank and the fuel valve is open.

I recently bought a 2005 softail deluxe and was told before purchase the battery was going out so the seller put a new battery on before purchase. I rode the bike for approximately 3-5 days with no issues...


If you are buying a multitester also consider buying a small motorcycle battery charger. They make ones that have a remote charging cable that you put on the battery one time and then you have an easy way to connect the small charger up when the bike it sitting for long periods. This will keep the battery fully charged and ready to go when you are.
Some batteries are sold only partially charged and you need to bench charge them fully before running them on the bike. Depending on your bikes energy demands the battery may never fully charge up during regular use.
If you put the multitester on DC voltage check the battery to see what its resting charge state is.
If the battery is reading less than 10.6 volts its probably down too low the recharge itself using the bikes alternator. Charge it until its resting voltage is 12.0 volts. Then your bikes alternator can make enough juice at 14-15 volts to recharge the battery while its running.
Good luck and be careful.

I think you could have an intermitant open circuit inside your battery. One of the links joining the cells is loose and makes contact sometimes and not other times. Replacing the battery could fix the problem. There appears to be notthing amiss in your charging system.

My hyosung bike wont start


flat battery,,, try charging it up,,,il give you a free tip,,,
if your going to stand the bike up for a long time,,
ie:weeks, then buy yourself a solar charger of 12 volts @ 2,4 watts and hook that up to your battery when you leave the bike, it will keep the battery toped up,, and all the solar sell needs to work is day light,, sun light is far better but good light will do,,,
free power,, i use them on all my bikes, no flat batterys so far,,,in 3 years!

Battery isnt charging.


any battery that has been completely flat can often get whats called sulphated plates if this happens the battery may never recharge and if it did take some charge it wont be much good after, the battery has had it realy the only this you could try is a very slow long charge but even this may not work,,,as a last dich try putting an asprin into each sell,,, yes thats right an asprin it dose work some times but for the life of me i dont know why, it just dose! as for whats the best battery,,,its all down to price at the end of the day, if its a cheapy type battery it wont last very long but il give you a good tip,,,,buy your self a 12 volt solar charger of say 2.5 watts a 1.5watt will just about do for a small battery,, when your going to lay the bike up the next time hook up the solar charger to the battery and forget it,,, the solar charger only needs daylight to work but sun light is better, and it will keep the battery toped up all winter i use them on my bikes (BMW 750cc 35amhr battery fitted) put on at the begining of winter took off in spring and they start first time every time,,,free power,,good huh!

I would hate to think a bike that new would already have the start going out. Nine out of ten times when your bike won't start, it is the battery. Test it with a meter to make sure you have a good charge, I mean like 12.7 volts. It could also be a side stand switch, or wiring. Charge your battery if it isn't above 12 volts. Also when you put your bike up for the winter, either remove your battery or charge it every thirty days. This is another problem when your bike sets all winter, your batterys life gets zapped if not properly taken care of, it might not be right away, but hope this helps.
