DD50 RUNNING PROBLEM (help please)
« on: July 13, 2016, 04:42:44 AM »
hi everyone. my battery went flat so i replaced it but now there is no current from the battery and my bike backfires unless i have rear brake on slightly and all of my electrics are getting weaker. could this be the fuse by my battery or my regulator ? PLEASE HELP.

Using a DC voltmeter (multitester $15) how many volts does the battery have with the engine off?

How many volts when you rev the engine?

Did the bike run great before the first battery went flat?

Did the bike run great after you first installed the current battery?

hi redridinghood. the bike ran fine before the battery went flat. i bought a new battery but my electric start would not work so i have been using the kickstart. i noticed over time my bike was still running fine but electrics were getting weaker anthen the revs would not pickup unless i had rear brake slightly on and now it backfires. carb has been stripped and cleaned. still the same.
