Question about 1990 kawasaki ZXR 750
Hi, The company i work for has a 3010 Kawasaki Mule. The other week it had a flat battery, checked it for charging and found would charge to 13.9v, so i fitted a new battery as didnt want to take the risk of just charging (old battery). 2 weeks it had gone flat again, completely stopped mid drive. Suspected fuel pump so fitted new with filter and plugs. Had difficulty jump starting as starter motor was locking up due to overheat. Eventually started, drove around for 10 mins, all good. Stopped and started perfectly. Went for another quick drive 5min and it just conked out and couldn't start due to flat battery. It wasnt charging at idle but would go to 13.9v with some throttle. Any suggestions? Could you please email me at [email protected]
Sometimes when the battery keeps going dead like that, a component may be creating a current draw. you can do a simple current draw test with a fluke meter by setting the meter to read amps, make sure the test leads are in the proper portals on the fluke for an amp test, and disconnect one of the battery cables and connect the test leads in-line with the battery and cable. It would help to know you have a good fuse inside the fluke. They are easy to blow, and whatever you do, DO NOT try to start the unit with the meter hooked up for the amp draw test. That is how fuses are blown. With the key off, check for any amp draw. If there is, you can start unplugging components until the draw goes away. If there was no draw to begin with, you may have a stator coil (or alternantor, whichever it has) that is weak and can't keep up.
