Motorcycle Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic ASAP
How old is the battery?
An older battery's capability to hold a charge gets worse over time to the point where all the charging in the world will not meet the needs of the bike (especially while starting).
Is the bike only running for two minutes or do you mean that after sitting for two minutes the engine will not turn over?
The battery is less than one year old. I crank the bike once a week and let it run for 15 minutes even when I don't ride. When I crank the bike it cranks just fine and then after running for 2 mintues the bike stops and all the lights go off like it died electrically.
I The lights do not show on the tachometer or nothing. I turn the key off and then back on and I get lights and the N shows up and I can crank it. Last for about 2 minutes and its like all electricty shuts off like and the bike stops.
I charged the battery for only 1 hour yesterday and having trouble getting my bike running. I was told today that I need to charge the battery 24 hours. I wish I had a voltage meeter to see if its at 12 volts already.
Its a Motorcycle slow charger ...trickle charger. Not sure whats wrong loooks like electrical and I suspect battery but its only about 9 months old ./..... Hummmmmmmmmm
Well I charged the bike battery for 22 hours on a trickle charge and after that I crank it just fine and it runs for 2 minutes and the entire electrical system and bike goes off turns off completely . The battery is less than a year old so I don't think its the battery unless its loose which I checked and it looks fine.
What would cause it to go off like that all the lights go off and it completely shuts down.
