It sounds like your battery is shorted. You need to take the battery to a shop and have it load tested. Harley's are not designed to run off the alternator like a car is.

Good Luck

Battery keep going dead


If the battery is dead after starting then you have a short in the starting system. If it only starts when you jump it, and I'm assuming your using a car to do this, then it sounds like the starter is using an unusual amount of current to start and is defective. A shorted starter will drain a battery instantly, but make sure the positive cable is not shorted to the frame anywhere first.

BIKE WON'T STAY RUNNING AFTER JUMPER CABLES ARE TAKEN OFF....


Sounds like the battery may be either low or shot. Place it on a trickle charger overnite to see if it will take a charge. Once you get the bike to run without needing jumper cables to keep it running, check the charging system. Easiest way to do this is to get a battery voltage reading with a multi meter before starting the bike. After the bike is running, place the meter leads on the battery and work the throttle to get the revs up to about 2000. Meter reading should be somewhere around 13.8 to 14.2 voltsDC. It not close to these readings, you have a charging system problem.

Left key in ignition overnight, had to jump start bike. now the main fuse keeps blowing


You haven't said what model or year of kawasaki.

Some newer bikes aren't supposed to be jump started. Take the battery off the bike, replace the fuse, charge the battery on a proper charger overnight (as opposed to a battery conditioner like optimate). It should now start fine and not blow the fuse.

If that doesn't sort it, the dealer will need to reset something.

No electric power after attempting to jump start with a car


using a car battery, especially while the car is running is way too many cranking amps for a 12 volt bike starter. remove the bike starter to have it rebuilt or replaced. Internally the main power wire inside the starter will be burned/broken. check fuses as well

Should my 03 honda cbr 954 stay running after I disconnect the battery? I went out of town for 2 weeks and came home to a dead battery. I jumped the bike w/my car and it started, but as soon as I...


The altenator combined with regulator should keep the engine running without a battery. It may run a bit lumpy but it should run.
You have either a regulator or an alternator fault.

Honda XR125 L-4 3 month old battery, Bike has engine has started to die, exhaust goes pop (backfire?), engine cuts out all together, battery almost completely dead wont restart bike, starter just clicks...


put a volt meter across the battery terminals, should read over 12v stopped and rise to 13.5v with the engine running.
If the voltage doesnt rise there is a problem with the charging circuit.
Be carefull starting from a car, as this can cause damage to the bikes electrics, as the bike tries to produce enough amps to charge up the car when the bike starts, and overcook electrics.

I have a 2004 Suzuki Marauder VZ1600. I was out riding last night and made several stops. When I stopped at my last stop and tried to start the bike it was dead. I put a jump box on it and it started right...


Most bikes require that your battery be in goo condition in order to run. They actually use the battery as part of the ignition circuit. So if your battery is completely dead it will drag your ignition circuit down.
Recommendation: Remove your battery, charge it and/or get it tested.

Secondly, if your battery checks out as being good, the only other thing I could think of it being is your charging system. That being comprised of a stator and a voltage regulator. These are semi expensive parts so, once you get past the battery check, I'd advise you to either get a manual for your bike, and some testing equipment (if your mechanically inclined), or take you bike to a reputable cycle shop and have them check it out. This way your not replacing good parts trying to track down the problem.

Good Luck.

How do u jump start the bike


put the bike in second or third gear. hold in the clutch and start building speed. The faster the better, then let out on clutch quickly and if motor fires, squeeze clutch back in to keep it running.

Battery...cant find out how to get to it ...can I jump it


If your battery is completely flat you will not be able to push start it as you will get no spark.

I think you need a manual and you can download it here free:

Burgman 250 will not start


Ck fuses and wire connections first. If no problem seen, get bike running and disconnect the ground cable @ battery. If bike dies the problem generally is in the stator or regulator assembly not keeping battery charged. Bike will run untill the battery is too low to keep the ignition system energized and the bike will die. If it continues running w/the ground disconnected, the battery could have a dead cell which will drain the battery in a very short time whether it is running or not.
