Trips out when starting
2006 ducati 999s
My bike started developing starter issues and noticed it wasn't holding the charge as much when left.
Fitted new battery but now when I turn ignition on the lights and dash and fuel pump all come on but when I hit the starter button then everything seems to trip out and I have to disconnect the battery again and reconnect before anything will switch on.
Any ideas as to what's causing this?
Before you go any further- do you own a multi-meter?
In order to do any meaningful analysis, you should have one, and be prepared to list voltage readings.
When you hit the starter button the current draw is huge — close to 200 amps — so if the connection to the battery is not secure the connection cannot carry the electrical load.
If the connection to the battery is secure, I'd suspect the connection inside the battery is the problem i.e., bad battery.
Connect a different battery (jumper cables are OK) and see if the problem disappears.
