2003 with electrical problems!!! I NEED HELP!!!
The bike has been running great then it started getting harder to crank! Instead of the instant start-up it would take several times turning over to finally crank! Then last night it just would not start. After many attempts and waiting between so not to burn up the starter it finally cranked, i had to drive it about 6 miles home and the lights were going from dim to dimmer, back and forth all the way home. When i got home it was idling fine, but the lights werte still going from dim to dimmer and back and forth. I shut the bike off and tried to start it again and it will not even turn over. I pulled the battery and checked the voltage. It was about 10 volts. I checked the batt. Water level and charged to a full charge. Reinstalled the batt. And tried to start it, it will not even turn over. Key on, in neutral, clutch-in, no start!!! I turned the key on and jumped the silenoid with a screw driver and it turns over really strong but will not start. I haven't checked the spark yet to see if it is firing? I do not understand that if it is the generator, what happened to the starter silenoid? Tomorrow i will check the spark and the starter button power to the silenoid! Help me guys what does it sound like to you'll???
