  • CF Moto 650NK Won't Start

    Hi Guy,

    Hope I've got the right thread here sorry.

    I have a 2011 CF Moto 650NK.

    Been a couple months since I've ridden it last I would say (bloody fair weather rider).
    Tried to start it the other day but no joy, I have gone through all the basic idiot proof checks I think.
    Powers up fine, dash, lights, horn all work good.
    Battery is fully charged and no issues there
    Check all fuses with a multi meter as well, all good.
    Checked the kill switch with a multi meter and that's working as per normal
    Checked that kill switch is off (Done that before haha)
    Checked it has fuel

    So basically the dash comes on, I don't think I was hearing any EFI checks or whatever it is going on though. When I hit the ignition button there's is nothing (as if the kill switch was on kind of nothing), doesn't even try to start.

    It has been covered since i rode it last but it was in a outdoor courtyard and probably got a good soaking when it rained heavy the other week.

    If anyone could shed some light for me I would really appreciate it, trying to avoid having to get someone to come look at it.

    Probably the battery (serious).

      It's the battery.

      I mean it coooould be the clutch lever switch. Put it in neutral, side stand up, then give it a crack. If no joy - take the battery to be tested. It probably dropped a cell during the last charge.

        [MENTION=21401]Loud[/MENTION] beat me to it. sounds like a kill switch isnt activating or de-activating. either clutch or stand.

          Thanks guys, I'll start with getting the battery checked then. I'm almost certain I tested the switch right, tried in neutral and everything but no joy.

            Would the battery still ready 12V if charged and power up the dash if it was knackered? (Sorry dumb questions, just seems strange)

              If you store it under a cover make sure it has vents to allow moisture to escape. Also a can of WD40 will be invaluable. Battery should read about 12.5 vdc...anything less and it is a bit low for starting.....however even at that voltage you would get the starter motor to spin over. Make sure any relays are firmly connected....jiggle them about...you might have some green verdigris build up on the connectors seeing as its probably been damp.

              Ps where are you I havent got anything better to do for the time being.
              Smoke me a kipper...I'll be home in time for breakfast

                The battery can show 12 v and light up the dash , while failing when put under load

                  So battery holds charge when i try the ignition.
                  Going to get it checked now anyway.
                  Jingled the relays and sprayed everything with wd40.
                  Still no joy.
                  The kill switch is turning on/off properly. What would be next down that line?

                    It's not starting. And you seem to know how to use a multimeter. So check to see if the starter motor is getting power when you turn the key to 'start'.

                      Yep battery checks out at battery world haha
                      I'll try the started motor next, thanks loud.

                        I don't think it'll be an issue with the starter motor. But if it doesn't have power getting to it then you'll know it's something in the kill-switch circuit. Side stand switch, neutral sensor, clutch lever safety.

                            when you attempt to start is there a clicking sound?

                            This usually indicates that the battery is failing to hold charge under load or may be something like the regulator rectifier
                            is failing to charge the battery.

                            a simple test....use jumper leads. If the bike starts the problem is electrical. Most likely the battery.
