Harold Do you mean that they won't fully charge or won't charge at all. If you have the small 12/12 batteries then they do not last as long as the U1 batteries (bigger) If you have the U1 batteries check the voltage of the batteries with a volt meter Fully charged should read over 12 volts and up to 13.5 volts. Also check your charger to make sure that it is charging with a voltmeter you can measure the voltage aith the charger plugged in and you should be reading over 13 volts on each battery. Hope this helps you

I have installed a new battery. impeller shaft is removed. I have removed the spark plugs. The engine turns over really good. With the plugs installed the engine struggles to turn over.

As you say 'impeller', I reckon this is a boat engine? Number one tip,

Year, make model horsepower

It is normal for the engine to turn slower with plugs in as you have the compression of air in the cylinders with the plugs in. Having said that, it should still turn fast. It may be the starter is losing power or the connections between the battery and the starter are corroded or dirty. One final thing is that you should always charge a new battery on a battery charger before you install it. If the battery is not FULLY charged, it is almost impossible for it to get full using the engine. You are basically just topping up.

My Thomas 6v Ride -On Train works, but VERY slow. It sounds like its really struggling to go. I have TWO fully charged batteries so I know its not the battery. Everything else on it works great...

It sounds to me like your battery needs to be replaced. The batteries lose their ability to hold a full charge after some time (especially if they've sat for a long while without a charge). You can get the battery tested at a trusted shop, but it might be more econimical to just replace the batteries with fresh batteries and see if that solves the problem. New batteries will charge much better and hold the charge much longer.

Battery spark at terminals

ok, first check you battery is actually maintain a good charge while your cranking the engine. If voltage drops below 10v your battery (Although appears fine while sitting) May not be any good when current is being drawn from it.

Its quite normal to see a small spark when connecting up a battery with voltage in it. If there were a short at the battery terminals you'd be blowing 30amp main fuse all day long.

Next if you replaced starter motor was it a new one?? If not then you may want to check the brushes inside are not worn away. Before doing that though try running a direct 12v straight into the starter motor to see if it cranks bike correctly.

You may have to change the magneto.
That's the return circuit which charges the battery.

Bikes hard to start

Disconnect the alarm, give the battery a full charge and see if it manages to hold the charge. If not, measure the current flow through one of the battery terminals. Should only be one or two milliamps..!

What to do

If the battery no longer holds a charge, then it sounds like you need to get a new battery, or at least have your current battery checked by a Battery Shop. Stator could be a problem, in which case you should be able to get a new aftermarket one for your bike. Just as a thought though, did you check your fuel level when it died on you? it's happened to me before, where I'm looking all over for what's wrong, thinking the bike has a terminal problem, when it just turns out that it was out of gas.
