Charge the battery then start the bike and check your charging system. If the charging system is good but the battery dies, there is more than likely a current draw on the battery while the key is off. It could also be the battery. Even though it is new, check the electrolite level if it is a standard battery and refill with distilled water. If it's a maintenance free battery, charge it and take it to a shop and have it load tested.

2007 Suzuki 250 quad battery is dead doesn't have kick start. Had it on trickle charger for four days still dead. Can I use a jump starter on it if not what are the recommended battery replacement

Hey Michele,, if the original battery lasted this long.. you are lucky,, just replace it. >>> Always use the exact replacement battery<<<<... your quad is designed to take the exact size and amperage rating,, trying to change this is inviting too much trouble,, When you get a new battery,, it will be charged unless you purchase one online that comes with the acid pack,, EITHER WAY - put the battery on the trickle charger for 48 - 72 hours BEFORE you use it.. This will extend the life of the battery a bunch and make it a stronger battery,, ..(this is from too many years of experience.)

Keith, if you don't already have a solution, let me suggest you check the battery leads. I recently( April 28) had the same problem. A good samaritan told me to check the the negative battery terminal. He was correct, the bolt connecting the negative battery leads to the battery was loose. After tightening, bike started. Norm

I was replacing my rear blinkers , before i put electrical tape on them i tested them and all was well, added the tape tried again and lo and behold everything went dead..checked battery and it is good,...

Hi,,remove the tape and check the connections,,when you say "everthing went dead i assume you mean all lights ect,,,check your fuse box,,,more than likely the indicator wiring has shorted and blown a fuse.

My partner has a 2006 suzukie forenza and just

This process takes (2) people to do easily. Once the battery is charged again from a charger or jump start, with the car off, open the hood with all the doors closed and disconnect the positive (RED) side of the battery using a wrench (many are 10mm). If you then touch the battery terminal back to the positive post of the battery you will likely see a small spark. That means something in the car is killing your battery. If not (no small spark) then you have an alternator problem. By taking needle nose pliers and removing and replacing each fuse in the fuse block individually and doing the aforementioned spark test, pulling ONE of those fuses will likely show NO spark when you touch the battery terminal to the battery. Once you have found that, you have found the circuit which is draining your battery. Look in the owners manual to find what that fuse is for. That will GREATLY narrow down your search to whatever is causing your problem.

No Sound Through Speakers

Hi Jake,

If you haven't done so already, I'd try double checking the speaker wiring, you may have some exposed or badly kinked wires behind the unit.
