Hi! Got a problem w/ my 79' XS1100F.

Here's the problem:

1. 1 push start ok. nice accelration & evrything.

2. After driving 5mins the engine will cut off & the battery will be drained.

3. After a few more minutes, the engine will start again & that is the cycle now. Start, stop, start. whew! :angry:

4. does this have anything to do w/ my coil, rectifier etc? :blink:

Pls help! Thanks!

Hello and welcome.

This appears to be a loose battery lead or earth lead problem. Check all leads. Also check the kill switch operation.

hi, i am having the same problem. I checked my rectifier and it appears that it is not putting out any current, i suspect it is bad, but not entirely sure.

i ordered a new one, but it did not match, so i am in the process of getting another.

have you determined what is wrong with yours??

Hi I have just restored my xs1100 and I have the same problem that you'r talking about.After about 5-10 min the bike starts missing on two and then all four cut out. The starter does have enough to try and turn over the engine. I did confirm that there is a total loss of ignition spark when the bike cuts out. Afer a few minutes the bike fires up just to stop again. Do this for a number of times and she will stop dead even after the starter comes back to full power.Have you by any chance figured out what your problem was.

Ok i finally figured out what's the problem w/ my beast.

1. I replaced a heavy duty rectifier. Bought from oregon motorcycle for $100.00

2. I bought & installed used stator from ebay

3. Brought back the newly charged batts

4. cleaned all the connectors

5. Broom! Broom! Everything went great!

this sounds just like a common fault with a vmax.

on the vmax the ground cable from the battery is not heavy enough(standard bike)

but there is an after maket one you can buy.
