Problems starting a 1983 nighthawk 650

Postby DJAcidice » Thu Jul 30, 2015 9:56 pm

So for the past few days the bike will start and run fine but when I start it up after 30 min to an hr after it's ran, the rpms go up but it's not turning. After taking the side ferring off, I saw the ground wire was connected to nothing, so I connected it neck to the black wiring to the battery. Still nothing happens. Any help would be nice! Also it had a full tank of gas.
The battery is good too because I bought it with a new battery, the lights are fine, and my sound system turns on, and I use a toggle switch so it doesn't drain
I also installed a sound system to the circular fuse on the right side under the ferring (starter or ignition fuse I'm assuming). I attached a toggle switch to the sound system to turn it off so it doesn't drain the battery as well.

Any help is appreciated.
