Motorcycle Questions? Ask a Mechanic.
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially (and if have not been tried), the prescribed preliminary approach would be; inspect the battery & ground lines and/or check/clean the battery cables + terminals as a preliminary consideration. Better yet, have the battery externally charged and then load tested (even if new and just for purposes of eliminating it as a suspect).
Additionally, check the main fuses co-located with the starter relay (in most versions). To locate the starter relay, start by following the big cable from the + terminal of the battery as it always ends up tied to 1 of the 2 big terminals of the starter relay.
All other checks would require the use of a volt/multi-meter.
Bear with us and with a volt/multi-meter, determine the battery voltage when:
Please post back results / observations of the above once tried.
Appreciate the post back and would look forward to an update on the voltage readings when able.
The voltage readings appear to be as expected.
Bear with me on this; hardwire another ground line from the battery's - terminal to the engine and likewise to the frame/chassis
Please post back results / observations of the above once done.
Yes please; 2 ground lines from the battery's - terminal. 1 to the engine and another to the frame.
And the voltages appears to be normal.
Would look forward to an update when able.
Sorry to hear the lack of development(s).
Please check for the presence and consistency of the voltages at the:
Yes, +12V at these wires.
Was just thinking; the ground was hardwired to the engine and chassis, might as well hardwire another to the black wires of the harness itself also.
And an update when conveniently able.
I understand and no prob when able.
