    Hello, I have got a Honda VTR Firestorm and it needs a new battery. From what I got to know it needs a 12V 12Ah battery. These batteries are a bit difficult to come by. I have a 12V 9Ah battery in my Honda VT 250 and I would like to know if I risk any damage to my VTR's electronics or anything...

    So I read that AC voltage coming from stator (this is a ninja 500 2001) should be about 18/20 per 1k RPM. I tested my stator using these numbers and realized it wasn’t putting out enough power, so I assumed a faulty stator (bike is not charging itself at idle) so I got an ebay stator, same...

    This is the second time this has happened. I took the bike in last season to a Honda repair shop and they assessed and got me a new stator and battery. I made sure the terminals were connected securely and rode this season but it happened again. Before the battery got to the state of the...

    Do I got to Auto Zone and get a portable battery charger? WIll that work? Push start it? Never done it, the light is completely off/dead. Does it matter? Auto Zone charges them for free. That sounds easy but might be easier to just buy a portable charger? I have AAA but not a separate...

    Hello all! I am a first time motorcycle owner (and the only one in my family). I have a 2006 Suzuki Boulevard s40 that won't start. Initially, I thought it was a bad battery so the first thing I did was check the charge. The old battery wouldn't recharge so I bought a new one. I installed the...

    Hey Y'all, I just bought a 1973 Honda CB450. It's been running fine until a couple days ago. What happens is I'll be cruising along in 3rd or 4th gear at <30mph and suddenly lose about half my power. When I slow to a stop and put in the clutch the engine dies, but when I release the clutch the...

    I just got my first motorcycle recently, a vintage honda XL250, seemingly in great shape. The first thing I did was replace the battery because it was old and only $20 to replace, but it's been having very strange electrical problems ever since. With the new battery in it, everything will work...

    Just got my first bike the other day. Honda cb125, nice little bike! Has a couple of other minor fixes to be made, so I'm sure you'll be hearing from me again. :P Bought it with the battery flat. Went to switch out the new one, and when I hooked it up the wires near the battery started...

    How often does one typically put their battery on a battery maintainer? I usually only drive like ~1-2 miles a day and after about two weeks of having a new fully charged battery, I have a dead battery. Is this normal? My mother had a scooter, and under the same circumstances, she never had to...

    Hi there, Yesterday a wire came loose and broke off the alternator of my bike. The bike is a 2000 Triumph Sprint 955 RS. I tried using electrical tape to connect the wire back to the plug thing. The battery is no longer charging and the bike now won't start. Pictures are below: As you can see...

    So I was being really stupid and didn't think that a second battery I was hooking up would have the polarities switched. When I hooked it up I did hear a little buzz for maybe a quarter of a second. After I realized the problem I unhooked it and checked the fuse (bike only has one, 1982 GS450...
