no lights

  1. Dominator / FMX
    Dead Dommie, no lights nothing. Batt 12.8 volts disconnected. 2 volts connected with ignition on. Drops to 1 volt if i press horn etc. is the battery duff or could something else be causing this. Cheers.

    My bike is charging fine then not charging and then charging then not. Doing the multimeter test I get 14.3 no lights and then 13.8 with lights, then 13.2,12.9,13.6,13.2,12.8,13.5 etc etc, up and down like a yoyo, what can be causing the undulations in the charging circuit.

    Hi all, this is my first post and I'm hoping someone might help. I've got a '99 NX650 that, up until now, has been running really well. I recently stripped all the panels and fuel tank for a bit of winter maint/paint. Once back together it started on the first press (well almost) and I took...

    Wire them into a switched circuit!!! I've just killed a battery with my direct wired set. I thought that I'd had a dim moment and left them turned on but have discovered they failed in a bizarre way It seems that the controller stuck them on on. No lights illuminated on the unit to let me...

    This was my 1ST trip into europe. I made the choice to go on my 1995 Africa Twin, We rode to the ferry in Hull on a lovley sunny day and perhaps it was a sign of things to come when he nearly dropped his Ducati in Sainsburys petrol station, that Ducati side stand really is useless. We made it...

    Hello there I'm new here but no one wants a life story so I'll cut to the chase. I'll also appologise for any grammatical errors as I'm on my iPhone and it's erratic. I'll also say I'm not familiar with correct terms for every part so may call something the wrong name here or there. I have an...

    I've been enjoying the summer have plenty of rides out and about and using my AT for work as much as possible. I've always taken great care to wear proper protective clothing etc. and haven't had a falling off for years.... That is until Friday. Simple story is I'd had my bike out, and was...

    Probably not the right forum but start here!! She's been sat in the back of the garage for the past 5 years, I've owned her for the past 11 years. I fitted it out with race fairing and seat and got a day time only MOT as no lights etc. It was my intention to start doing track days but them...

    This morning, A27, decent fog and still some prats with no lights on. It reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally gets to me. So, if you can let it just wash over you, then I'm jealous. Annnnnnd breathe....... No, I can't. Just typing this makes me think about the driver this morning to whom I indicated no...

    Before I go hunting hogh and low for that elusive spark I thought I would try here first to see if this is a known problem or someone else has had this before. I have had the bile laid up for 2 1/2 months (outside, no cover and through the snow)and I have put the battery back in (remembered to...

    Can someone explain to me, because they drive me crazy. Lots of 4 x 4s have what looks like two sets of lights in a great position about half way up the back of them. But, when you are behind them, the rear lights are actually down by the bumper!!!!! So, when there is a 4 x 4 one car ahead, it...

    First time I've encountered something like this and electrics aren't my forte so I'm a bit stumped here. Occasionally, when I turn the key to the On position, nothing happens. As in there are no lights, no idiot lights, nada. Almost as if the battery isn't even connected. I say 'occasionally'...

    I got this little item off eBay a week or two back, and just fitted it today. It just replaces the battery - its got a neg & pos terminal - so self explanatory to fit :thumbup: Tried it our - about 10 miles - and it does what it says on the tin. Obviously when motor is not running - no lights...

    Recently i had been having problems with a flat battery, i narrowed it down to a fried R&R which i replaced, along with the old boiled battery. Now, starting from 2 days ago (when i went through a 2 foot deep 'puddle') the electrics keep totally cutting out when i press the start button, i get...

    Hi boys and girls, this morning my twin failed to start due to a flat battery. I completed a 150mile round trip Saturday, left it for a day and this morning nothing. I have checked the charging rates; At idle, no lights- 14v ish:D With headlights and projector beams-...

    Hello. Long time no see. My bike has been running smooth forever now so was time for something to break I guess ;).. When driving home today I suddenly realised that the blinkers didn't work. When I try to blink either left or right the sound of the blinker goes in to a frantic spasm and...
