929 battery issues

Hey everyone, my 929 gave me some trouble today, i turned the ignition on and the fuel pump primed and everything was great, i then came to start the engine and i heard a slight tick and then there was no more power, speedo and everything went off. I tried swapping batteries with my uncle's bike and fuel pump primed again, when i pushed the button to start the engine, that tick came again and all power went off. It seems like something is shorting the battery but i can't figure out what. I then jumped it from the car and it ran great but as soon as i took the cables off the bike died. After two fried batteries i don't get whats wrong...

Re: 929 battery issues

Was his battery KNOWN to be good? Not just assumed it would be ok?

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Re: 929 battery issues

His battery was fine the dash lighted up and fuel pump primed, after i pressed the button to start the engine it turned over but before the engine could fire, that tick happened and all power went off, no horn, dash, lights or anything. I feel something is shorting out

Re: 929 battery issues

It basically killed two batteries, i connected the battery's 2 terminals with a wire and it didn't even make a spark!

Re: 929 battery issues

Just because the lights come on doesn't mean the battery has enough to juice to crank the starter motor. What voltages do they show across the terminals?

Re: 929 battery issues

That's the thing, the lights don't come on, it cranked then did this tick sound and EVERYTHING went off. Happened 2 both batteries. The battery is basically dead, i connected a piece if wire to both terminals and it didn't even spark once.

Re: 929 battery issues

Did you check the voltage in both batteries?

In a dead/dying battery it will light up dash, signals, headlights but may not have enough juice to start on the button.

The fact that you are able to jump her from the car but not the batteries sounds like the issue is with the batteries.

I would check voltage and charge if u have a charger to rule out the batteries or find the culprit before worrying about the stator, RR or electrical issue.

Re: 929 battery issues

No i didn't check the voltange. The thing is it lights perfectly and primes the pump but as soon as the button to run the engine is pushed, eveything will go off. I don't get what it can be. But i'm guessing since the battery doesn't spark when i short it with a wire then the voltage is extremely low. And if i jump it from the car, it will keep running as long as it is connected, once i take one of the wires off, it shuts off immediatly.

Re: 929 battery issues

Have you ever had the start button off before. The 'short' could be with the button?

Re: 929 battery issues

I always keep the cut off switch on run and just turn off the engine with the ignition. The Button that is causing the problems is the crank button.

Re: 929 battery issues

Yes that's what I mean. The start button not the kill switch. Have u taken that off and looked at the wiring in there?

Re: 929 battery issues

If there was anything wrong with the wiring or something shorting out wouldn't it have shown when i was jumping the battery from the car?

Re: 929 battery issues

Somehow I don't think that'll be accepted as the answer though.
