Use trickle charger on the battery while the bike is not on use, it extenz the life of the battery a bit. A battery will last you about 3-4 years depending on use and conditions. Hope that helps.

After sitting one week the batteries are dead. Seems as if something is draining the batteries. I switched the tow switch on when not in use.Batteries are about four months old.


Seems like you're definitely right. Get wiring schematic for your bike sounds like you're grounded out somewhere. Get yourself a battery tender or you may need a new battery cuts the voltage on the battery should be about 12.671 V not running

sorry didn't actually see the post before my first comment, if it is only when the bike is warm or hot but not over heated I would suspect the same thing, faulty starter. "replace or rebuild"

you will need to attach an Ohm meter to the battery when it is fully charged then pull around at all wiring on the cycle to see if the meters reading changes to OL. When that happens that area of wires is your short

Hi, asuming the battery is in good condition and has no dead cells, sounds like you have a charging problem, this could be simply a loose conection caused by corrosion, check the plug at the regulator rectifier, gently pull on the wires at the plug on both ends, look for corrosion, separate the plug and check inside it for corrosion, clean if ness, running a motorcycle with a discharged battery can cause damage to the machines electrical systems, including frying the ecu and stator, under normal conditions a. Battery can last up to 3years, (some may last longer) if in any doubt replace the battery

Sounds like an alternator or charging problem.
Check to see if you are getting around 14v on your battery with the engine running.
If not you will have to investigate your alternator etc.

Bike was sitting in garage. Dead battery. Charged it. Fuses good lights horn ect work. Nothing happens when I press start button. No click. Nadda. Ignition? starter? Or am I way off base? Thank you!


I would have the bbattery tested, bike batteries are prone to just going oopen and u have zero output, it is very unlikely anything else is wrong.

Kiil my battery


with the lights on for well over a week. (in my locked garage incase your wondering why I still have a bike) Needless to say the battery is dead. It's been on a trickle charger since Sunday afternoon (now Tuesday afternoon) and it still indicates charging. We did try it in the bike anyways and no go. Do you think I killed it? The dealership told me it might take a good 2-3 days to charge it back up if I didn't kill it. The battery is 3 months old.... should I just go out a buy a new battery at this point? Ahhh....lessons learned the hard way. Slap a trickle charger with a float on it and see what happens. No way to find out how bad it is until you try to fix it. And draining then charging a battery is one of the worst things you can do to it. Personally, I couldn't stand not riding for 3 days, so I'd buy a new battery anyways. But that's just me.,,,
