Question about 1996 Honda CBR 900 RR Fireblade
I charged it again and it worked good for a week, then it just died again. It seems to be charging very little cuse it does work good for a week after charging it but then just slowly looses charge.
Could be one of three things that I can think of:
1) The battery is at the end of its life. It can't hold a charge any more. Solution is to replace battery.
2) The electical system is not charging. You can check this with a voltmeter. With the engine off you will get maybe 12.2 volts. With the engine running it should increase by 1 to 2 volts.
3) The bike is not getting used much and something is draining the electrical system. Not too probable, but maybe you've wired in a stereo and left it playing? Kidding. But an example of a drain on the battery.
Personally, I'd be betting on the dead battery.
Hope this helps.
