Hi, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, proposed preliminary checks (if have not been done) on suspects:

  • • test integrity of wires to the kill switch;
  • • check/clean the kill switch;
  • • verify throttle action/cable;
  • • inspect wiring from the stator to the voltage regulator;
  • • inspect the battery, its ground lines and/or check/clean the battery cables + terminals, connectors and wiring. Have the battery externally charged and then LOAD TESTed (even if new/charged and just for the purpose of eliminating it as a suspect).

All others would require the use of a volt/multi-meter.
