I’m not a mechanic but I can change the oil and a few other things. My Trike has been great. I ride every day TWICE a day around my neighborhood and it has always started the very first try. Went out to ride today for the first time (it was raining this morning which is usually my first ride). I turn the key and the LCD screen lights up, but absolutely NOTHING, no clicking, no moaning, no anything. The blinkers won’t work, neither does the horn when I’ve turned the key. Battery voltage shows between 11.9-13.7. I opened the battery compartment and am using my tender to fully charge it. Nonetheless, even if the battery is almost dead, shouldn’t I hear something? After all, the digital display comes on with the key. I noticed that when I pushed the starter the LED screen goes blank. I have kept up with my oil changes and such. I have only 384 kilometers... 238.69miles. HELP!
When dealing with these problems you have to eliminate things. The instrument panel going blank Is a pretty good indication of a dead battery.
A little background. This past Saturday my Kawasaki started fine and everything lit. I then hustled down to Westchester on a parkway to attend a motorcycle event. I got there, the directionals weren't working and the bike stalled out. After getting a jump I made it home.
I dragged out the volt/ohmmeter and did a load check. Voltage with nothing on, 12.5 volts. Turn on the key and lights come on, 11.9 volts. Hit the starter button and it spins slowly, 5.5 volts. Battery dead, new one on order.
Repeat my tests on your scooter. Batteries go dead at the drop of a hat. Mine probably had a cell go bad on the ride down.
Also check your battery connections and the ground wire attachment to the chassis. A bad ground can case troubles too.
