Battery drains after 3 days of no use

This has happened several times now. I ride the bike for a week straight, after i park it in the garage for 3 days it will not start, the battery is brand new. something on my bike must be drawing power when its off. Please note there is no electronics on this bike except the electric start.

    The actual battery cant be the issue, this is the 3rd battery on this bike that has had the same problem as its predecessors. As for the alternator, it will charge the battery every time its ridden, so as long as i ride it every day Im OK, put if the bike sites for a couple days of no use its all over.

Even though the battery is new does not mean its not faulty!
Also you might want to check the bikes alternater and make sure it is charging the battery when you are running the bike!
I hope this helps you!

I have the same bike and it has a design flaw. If you leave the key turned on it will drain the battery very quickly. If you just turn the key off every time you get off the bike it won't drain it.

Hi, i went for a ride 3 days ago and parked the bike in the garage since, this morning my k8 gsxr 1000 didn't' want to start, when pushing the starter button I hear a 'click&am


Most of the time this will be the battery, the battery is very weak, will need to be recharged using a trickle charger, if the battery won't hold charge, you need to replace the battery.

It might also be a faulty starter motor and or solenoid.

You will most likely have some sort of electrical problem, a drain problem, parasitic draw.

The problem has to be found and fixed.

Hope this helped and have a nice day.

1995 Buell S2 Battery will not start the bike


Sounds like the battery is not holding a charge, if you connect a volt meter just after charging you will get a good reading, each cell of a battery is 2.2 volts so you should have a reading of 13 volts. Battery may have a faulty cell, which will drag the other cells down, is the electolite covering the plates in all the cells, this will affect the battery's ability to hold a charge. My Suzuki did this earlier on this year, nearly bought a new battery, checked and topped up the electolite first and its been fine since

Hi i have an 08 xv1900a midnight star & if i leave it parked in my garage for a couple of weeks when in go to start it there is not enough power in the battery to turn the engine over. any idea's?...


If there was some point at which you drained the battery too much (left the ignition or parking light on) and then recharged the batttery, the battery will no longer hold a full 12 volt charge, nor will it ever be able to hold a charge for more than a week thereafter. You need a new battery.
The other solution is a little obvious though -- why leave such a beautiful bike hiding in the garage for that long anyway?

sounds like the battery doesn't have enough power.
Battery may be bad, or your charging system is bad.
If the bike was sitting for a while not being ridden (longer than 3 weeks) then the battery is probably dead.
go to a local powersports shop and ask them about a "trickle charger" this is what you plug the bike into when you park the bike for a long time like the winter. You can dfind a cheap charger for about $20. It has to be a trickle charger not a regular battery charger otherwise it could overcharge and the battery could explode or even catch fire. This will keep your battery from dieing everytime you park the bike for an extended period of time.

It all seems to be leading to fuel starvation. Have you checked the tank breather is not blocked which can be a small hole in the petrol cap or a tube from under the tank. It could also be a blocked fuel filter. There should be two. One inside the fuel tank under the petcock, another before the fuel pump. Here is the workshop manual where you can find all info you will ever need for this bike.
