Carby Thrux has been running (5-10km) after a recent makeover but does not have a consistent start.
Checked the specs on their website http://www.linkint.com.au/
and purchased a MOTOCELL LITHIUM GOLD LiFePO4 Battery 12.8 Volt Series - MLG14B 48WH.
Charges up to around 13.2v, hit the starter and sometimes it kicks over but more times just a click and whir of the engine trying to spin up but feels not enough oomph to get it to start.
Placed a multimeter across battery terminals, hit the starter and it drops to around 5-6v, no start, then it bumps back up to high 12s.
Swapped over and utilised a larger battery from another bike with same result.
New coil and plugs.
New wiring throughout using m.unit with two wires utilised from starter solenoid to START terminals on unit, this is the way many others also connect this circuit.
New R/R, recently purchased by Ricks for my set up.
Stator tested by checking resistance (20ohm) between each pin (1-2, 1-3, 2-3) whilst bike is off with no battery and reads starting at OL. to 0.00 after contact.
There is continuity between any of the three (1-2, 1-3, 2-3).
No resistance reading between any of the 3 pins to earth, checked with other earths.
Both connectors between rectifier and stator looks good.
Also noticed the battery earth cable gets quite hot to touch when attempting to start a few times.
Earth cable runs from battery to frame .5M and is around 6mm conductor diameter, no kinks or connectors.
Earth cable from starter motor to starter solenoid is 1.5M and again is around 6mm conductor diameter no kinks or connectors.
Seat not touching Ignitor.
If the bike does not start, I’ve also tried to rock bike in gear and reattempt, with some luck but not a lot.
Edit, altered text from relay to ‘starter solenoid’
