    Won't start when hot !!!

    Hi all

    I have a Tuono V4 ARPC, I'm over the moon with it but when it's over 60 it won't start until the temp goes down, so if my running in town it might go to 90.... stop for petrol, go to start it up and it sounds like the battery is dead and it won't turn over, so I'd be stuck there for 30-45 mins until it calls down then she'll fire up in a second !!!! Any clues....... it goes back to the dealer on Monday but just wanted see if anyone else has/had the same problems 👍👍

    Hi Barty67,

    I had the same problem with my Tuono V4 from 2011.
    I solve the problem with : HICAP starting upgrades for motorcycles

    Regards

    Yeah known issue, an update on the map solved it partially.

    I added an extra thick negative cable attached to battery to subframe from halfords, think it was 9 inches, motoelectric do a kit too.

    Not the battery, mine is always on an optimiser and is charging at 14.3v at idle, my battery is healthy and it still won't tick over when hot, your garage is wrong.

    Nah Mate, It's got more to do with the heat these bike generate and the shitty thin power and earth cables me thinks, lots of info on AF1 forum, I'll be changing to a thicker earth lead as a first option cheapest option if that doesn't work I'll do both power and earth.

    Update : just got my baby back from Blade Motorcycles, they fitted a new battery ........seams to have worked !!! I was very suspicious, that they were trying to palm me off with some half arsed job but it's started every time when hot, I am going to upgrade the earth cable, just as an extra precaution. Great to have her back and great ride back from Swindon 😊

    Glad that's worked for you Barty, Not being negative but I'm a bit sceptical in the long run.
