You really don't have to worry about having too big of battery. As long as the voltage is correct the size of the battery makes little difference as long as it is big enough. The electrical parts will only draw the power they need. The battery will not force too much power on to things just because it is big. The big thing to remember is to take the old dead, battery totally out of the system. If you keep the old battery in the bike it will try to suck up the power from the fully charged battery. This can cause the old battery to explode.,,,

The battery may be dead and won't receive a charge. If you haven't already, try changing the battery, but charge the new battery on a battery charger before you put it in. You don't want the charging system to have to start off trying to charge another partially charged battery.

Bike quit while riding- dead battery


Yeah, and in the rain too.
I think you should take your battery to AutoZone and have it checked.

I need to charge my battery and I'm not sure what to do. I have purchased a small charger.


all you have to do is clamp the red clamp to the red wire battery post and the black to black. Then plug in the charger.
