I have a 2008 kawaski KFX 450r. Been having issues with it starting. I will ride the bike a 2 o 3 days, then it wont start. Thinking it may be the stator? Battery has been tested, and is good. Battery is always kept on a trickle charger when bike is stored for long periods of time. The starter makes a loud grinding sound as well. Also thinking it could be the starter. Before I spend hundreds on parts, is there any advice?

I had the same problem. The compression release fell out of the exhaust cam! Its part of the cam. I replased the exhaust cam and it starts easily now. Don't forget to use a magnet to find the piece that fell off. If thats not it you siezed your motor.

New battery just put boat in water always had a solar powered charger on battery took it off about a week ago today went to start boat battery dead. I do not know if it has altanator or what have a friend...


You will need to do 3 tests:
1 - you must find out if you have a short in the wiring: disconnect the + cable from the battery and put an ampermeter in there to close the circuit; if a current is detected it means that you have a short and it will drain the battery. To locate the short start disconnecting wires and look at the meter - when you will disconnect the wire that goes to the failed wire or part the current will stop flowing; find the faulty part and fix or replace it.
2 - you must find out if the alternator is charging the battery correctly: start the motor, wait for half an hour then measure the voltage on the battery. If it's below 14.1 volts then the alternator is failing and it will have to be replaced.
3 - you must find out if the battery is in good working order: after the second test has finished shut down the engine and disconnect the battery; wait one hour and measure it -if the voltage on it has dropped to below 11.8 volts then the battery has aged and it's no longer holding the charge so replace it.

I have a 2007 Polaris Ranger 700 XP its not charging the battery. I have run it the same way since it was new. I have to charge the battery every few days. Please help! Thank you.


the voltage regulator keeps the battery charged so it could be bad but first, ...
1st Make sure your battery terminals are clean and tight, loose or corroded terminals will keep it from charging.
2nd make sure the voltage regulator is plugged in, sometimes a vibration, a crash or sudden stop will cause a loose connection there.
3rd start the engine, put a voltmeter on the battery, at an idle it should read 12.50 - 13.0 Volts
if anything under 12.50, means the battery is not being charged at an idle.
rev up the motor to at least 2000-3000 rpm and see if the volatage increases. it shouldn't go any higher than 14.9 volts or its over charging.

If terminals are clean and tight and you get a good reading (12.5 - 14.9 volts).
Then your battery is bad.
if you dont get those readings then the voltage regulator is bad.

If voltage regulator is bad, you can replace it your self, it takes a 10mm socket to undo 2 bolts and just unplug it, plug the new one in and screw the 2 bolts in .
test it.

ride it, your done.
Have a good one

I have 750 drifter. went to start it and I have lights and electrical but when I push the start button all I get is "clicking" noise. I checked the battery charge and it is full. what else can I check?


I took the battery out and had it tested at a friends shop. Turns out the battery really only had about 9% life left and the "clicking" sound was only the starter relay trying to work. The battery has a dead cell and won't hold charge anymore. Bought a new battery and all is well!
Thanks

Suzuki atv


This sounds likea transmition problem which is only meant to be looked at or fixed by a professional. Take the ATV to a dealer and have them take apart the transmition or do a diagnostic on the machine.
