  • RS250 Electricals

    Hi. So I wanted to ride to work today and possibly over the long weekend but as it happens my bike appears to have other plans.

    - Key in, turned key, tacho needle moves jerkily between 0 - 6000 and back again.
    - Let it sit where it was at past 0 and pulled brake on, tacho needle flicks between 0 - low revs (I can't exactly remember where it's jumping to)

    I didn't try kicking it over.
    I'm hoping it may be a fuse or something simple.

    I know this info is limited but I thought I'd post to get some ideas on what the problem might be.

    I know nouthin bout nuthin, but I'd check your ground connections first. If they are out of whack and you get a 'floating ground' it can do what you described.

      check your battery terminals and make sure they are on nicely, you may need to clean them...
      check fuses...

        Why didn't you just kick it ?

          from ma bed in hozz, sounds like the battery "has dropped a plate"
          check voltage between red and blek should be 12+ Volts

            flat battery.

            seen it before on heidi's, the tacho will 'tick'.

            replace and check the charging system as well, just in case.

              Thanks guys.

              Possibly a stupd question, but you're used to them by now - would Suzuki/Somewhere Else have a readily available battery for my bike?

                Battery World mebbe.

                But it should kick fine even with a flat battery Loz.

                  I'd try Rick Gills first, Kev needs to do some work

                    Shouldn't be hard to track one down buuut if it has just been sitting a while it might be worthwhile just giving it a charge and see how it goes

                    Can drop a charger off tonight if you're stuck.

                      Admittedly, the last time I rode it was the MAD ride so it has been sitting under the cover for a couple weeks.

                      Thanks again guys, I didn't try kicking it over this mroing in case it went all Ducati on me and blew up.

                        Just bat your eyelids and make it Lee's problem.

                        I hear some form of sweet cake like substance or other food based items tend to make things work again.

                          Orange tic-tacs are your friend Loz.
