Electrical problem

Laurence Serchuk /

I am having an electrical problem.

My starter is not working and when I get the bike going manually and I use the turn signals, they flash at an extremely high rate. Also, the horn affects the turn signals.

Any ideas?

You need to specify what kind of moped you have. Mopeds don't have starters.

its because your running from your magneto and not the voltage regulator.

I have no idea what a "magneto" is. And I have a Yamaha BW 2001

a magneto is what produces the electricity needed to run the engine and the rest of the bikes components. all a battery does is start the bike, and act as a regulator to maintain proper voltage to the lights and such. i worded my last post wrong. it should have read that your power is not running thru a regulator. this bike sounds like a scooter and you shouls ask this on a scooter forum.
