electrical problem

  1. Stator Failed the Test

    General Motorcycle Discussion
    I've been having issues with the electrical on my 1978 Honda CB400. The problem seems to be related to the charging system. After riding for awhile the battery is dead and it's a new battery. I tested the charging system per the manual with the bike running and the readings were all out of...
  2. r100gs power failure

    I'm really inexperienced at this stuff, particularly in regard to electrical/ignition issues. I'm desperate for help. Initially I was riding my 92 R100GS about 10 miles, when the bike just died as I was riding it. When I tried to re-start it, the engine turned over, but it wouldn't fire up. It...

A couple days ago, the start button stopped working...

    Motorcycle Repair
    Headlight, taillight and running lights all stopped working at the same time. Turn indicators still work; bulbs are good; fuses are good. I've replaced the ignition switch on the off-chance - still no luck! Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? I'm at a loss, now.
  7. Honda CB350 electrical issue

    First Bike / New Rider
    Hi, I'm relatively new to motorcycles, but my younger brother left a partially dis-assembled 1973 Honda CB350 at my parents' place when he moved out West a few years ago. I'm attempting to get her back in running condition. The project was going pretty well until the other night. The gas tank...
  8. 2003 VL 800 Volusia issue

    Hello ... when starting my 2003 VL800 Vlousia this morning the electric system completely went dark :mad: (upon pressing the ignition button). After a while electricity came back, everything is working (but the clock was reset ... so I assume there was a short somewhere), but when I press the...
