Question about 2006 Ducati 749 Dark
So I went to start my bike, it has not been running all winter, i fired it up once or twice to show off to some ladies. But seriously, the volt meter reads 10.0 and 9.0, the bike will not start! The only way I got it to turn over was to run it down a gently hill and pop the clutch. Once started the battery does run UP to 11, then 12, then 13.7. Once started, It will then bounce from 13.7 - 13.8v - 13.7 again. I had left this bike to run for about 10mins and it seems to be able to start up again... but what should/ can be done here? How can I charge this battery? I have a Honda 1000 generator can I use that? Do i have to boost it with another bike? I know that I cannot hook it up to my car battery because they are different voltages! What do I do fellas
You need to get a battery tender, and when you put your new battery in it has connections that will stay on your battery and you just plug it in after you are done riding and cleaning her. oh one more thing when you get a new battery you need to charge it for 8 to 12 hours before using it, they are not like a car battery buy it, put it in, and go, you have to charge them up first. The tender should keep you battery charge all winter long. I hope this helps you. One more thing, 749's do not like weak batteries as you have found out. Buy a new one, install a tender and and use it, the battery will last much longer.
