Clocks reset on start up


Recommended Posts

Occasionally on start up my lcd screen time & trips reset. It’s not every time though, maybe after the bike has set a week. 

 

I haven’t had time to dig into connections and grounding. On one of the Facebook forums someone else was having this issue but I didn’t see a result from a repair. A couple people jumped to the R/R as a culprit but there was no explanation of why so I'm skeptical. I replaced mine a couple years ago. 
 

Before I dig in and chase my tail, is there a recommended direction for tracking down a possible cause?

Have you done a battery voltage test? 

Ignition OFF, engine at idle, engine at 5k rpm I believe is the usual method. 

 

Sounds like it's battery related possibly caused by R/R.

I have not checked charging voltage yet or the battery yet. The battery is the simplest thing to start with. It is also a couple years old as I’d replaced it when I did the R/R. It’s plugged into a Tender during the off season.

Was the replacement R/R an OEM or a mofset?


It’s a Super Mosfet Kit FH020AA from Jack @ Roadstercycle

A clock resetting when you start the bike is a classic symptom of a dying battery.

Sigh….. I was hoping to get a bit more time out of it but I know all to well batteries are a gamble. They just aren’t made like they used to.

Well, I still haven’t dug into the original question but I do know keeping the battery tender on it all week between rides keeps the problem from happening lol. I should just set down, spend the little amount of time really takes and trouble shoot this correctly. If it is the battery, I’ll probably nurse it along until the end of the season and put it on the “to do” list for next spring.
