Battery is too small does not having the crank power. At best. KI have a 2006 Vulcan 2000. It has Vance and Hines exhaust
and a power commander. The battery recently died and required
replacing. I put the new battery in and everything seem to be great.
I went approximately 5 days without cranking it. I finally got around
to firing it up..it just clicked as if the battery were dead. I removed
the battery and put it on a 2 amp slow charge. The battery charger
show that it charged fully. I put the battery back in and tried to
crank the bike. It would not crank, the FI light stayed on. I put it in
neutral and it cranked. I put it in gear and it went dead. It will
not turn over or even click unless its in neutral. I put it back in neutral
and tried to crank it again...it just clicked and the FI light came
on and the start kind of bumped several times, but wouldn't crank.
Could I have a bad battery? or is there something else?
Thanks in advance for any input!!!!
battery is unable. To crank the motor. Test as follows. Get car battery. Cone has jumper leads positive to positive. Neg to neg. make sure lead don’t short. An hav a good. Connection. Try in. Natural firs research then with clutch in. Should start. Ok. If start. Vith clutch. Get the best battery that fitsSounds VERY much like a bad battery to me... can you put it back in, put the charger on it and crank it while the charger is connected? Give it a couple of minutes on regular charge first, if you can (if it's that kind of charger...), then let me know what happens...
I hate to say but it sounds like it jumped timing, that causes the backfire. The valve is open and is loaded with gas. Pull a plug put the plug against the jug, put your finger over the whole and plug it, when you feel the compression blowing the spark should be at the same time if not then that is the problem.Glad it was the battery, that makes me 6 for 6 on diagnosing batteries this year!
You lost me of the new problem though... turn over, but not crank? I'm not sure what you mean?! I usually referring to "cranking" and "turning over" as the same thing... Is the starter just spinning without engaging? But then you say you went out and cranked, and then wouldn't crank?
Sorry, I can't interpret his one, and I can usually do that?! But it's Monday after all!
