08 650 executive, new battery but charging system doesn't charge
I have an 08 burgman 650 exec that ran fine for amost a year (in fact I did a ride from california to utah and back, no problem. then i let the bike sit for almost 4 months in the garage. the other day i went to start it up and the battery was dead. tried charging the battery and it wouldn't. i figured the batter y was bad and bought a new one, installed it and the bike ran fine for an hour or so and then the bike began stalling and went dead and wouldn't start up again. i recharged this new battery, and it does the same thing. has anyone had any problems with their charging system on the exec? i did nothing else but change out the battery. thanks.

Your running off the battery until it dies. Check your chargng system. It should put out 13.0-14.5 volts. If not then the current will flow from what ever source has the most voltage. Thus, your dead battery. Try changing he voltage regulator and then check the stator next. Sometime stators can have burned section on them and reduce the voltage produced to the battery. Also check for really good connectin to the terminals. This can rob current and voltage by upt o 40%.

Hi, Peter the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 sometimes more and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, then there is eBay where you may be able to find what you need at a very high price because of its age and rarity. Most of the "FREE" manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have.

a lawn mower battery is only good for a couple years when keeping it charged and testing voltage doesn't tell you what is has for amps is the volt meter read more than the off voltage while running then it works they only have a 4-7 amp charging system
Battery is likely dead - or has built a sediment bridge - shorting the anode and cathode. Jump-start the tractor with your vehicle - or another battery to check.
Or - use a multimeter to ensure your battery is not draining to 0V when you attempt to start. This also indicates a failed battery. It may have a decent float charge - but when the load starter) is applied - the voltage will drop right out.
One explanation for this would be that your charging system is faulty. It is possible that the OLD battery was ok, but was not getting charged by the faulty charge system. You put in a new battery, that is part charged before sale and ran the battery flat because it wasn't charging. If you leave a discharged lead acid bettery for 20 minutes or so, it will pick up a little again and possibly let the bike start and run, but by the time you got home you had killed the battery completely.
All the facts fit, though I'm not promising that it is the problem.
Take the battery off and charge it with a charger. Now, put it back on the bike and run the bike (It should start) While the battery is on the bike, get a volt meter on it. It should read slightly over voltage (doesn't matter if its a 12 or 6 volt system, it will read a little over when the bike is running) when you turn the engine off, you should see the volt meter drop down to the stated battery voltage. If you get no hike with the engine running and drop as you power off, its a good sign the charging system is faulty. A similar test, start the bike, meter the battery and turn on the indicators, stop light and head light to pull as much power as you can, the battery voltage shouldn't dip, because the charge system should compensate. If it does dip, consider this a confirmation that the charging system is faulty.
This usually indicates there is not enough power to turn the starter over, so the solenoid just clicks. It sounds like you need the battery to be charged. If this is occuring even after 20 to 30 minutes of riding, either the charging system is not working or the battery is bad (motorcycle batteries typically don't last for more than 3 years, less if they are not kept charged during the non-riding months).
If battery is running down. The engine may not be charging the battery. Check charging system. If running on battery, the bike will run fine for awhile then die as the battery can no longer provide spark to the engine. If charging system is less than 13.0 volts could be a ad stator or regulator. Make sure the battery posts are clean, a bad ground can cause problems too.
check the air ride suspension system if that is causing the problem the car maybe trying to lift the rear end and it will cause the battery to lose charge check in the trunk for a shut off switch and see if that helps
