Question about 2007 Yamaha YZF-R6

2 Answers

I own a 2007 Yamaha R6 with 2,000 miles and a dead battery. I fully charged it and installed. The next day it's dead again. I hope nothing is draining the battery. I want to assume it's just a bad battery. Please help. Thanks.

If the battery was dead for a decent amount of time, it's shot. But if it's not the battery and you checked the stator without issue, check for a ground. Another common culprit is the alarm if you have one. I have Lo-Jack and a scorpio alarm and it drains my battery pretty fast, as in just days if the alarm is on and all options in use (perimiter, shock, tilt, etc. but especially perimiter)

This could be a stator issue you want someone to check the stator to see if the charge being delivered to the bike is within the normal limits... by the way i would almost bet its the stator unless you have ground effects lights that could be grounded ou due to the heat a bike produces

About once every 2 to 3 weeks car won't start. Battery appears dead. Then next day fine. Battery holding charge, not starter either. Baffe

If the battery appears dead when the fault occurs, it probably is the battery (or pos/neg leads) batteries are devious and take pleasure in appearing fully charged. Eliminate further by replacing battery, buy or borrow. Only other explanation is a short to negative on particular day, check starter motor cables. Best of luck.

My wifes 650 Yamaha vstar custom's battery is dead. if i charge it is there a starter relay switch that i will need to change out as well? and should i charge it at 6 amps or 12?

If the starter relay is working properly after you install the fully charged battery, and that means engaging when you hit the button, then there's no reason to replace it. Unless you just want to replace it with something better.

Hello, After fully charging my mother's Jazzy power chair overnight, the rear battery indicator/pointer shows zero meaning it's fully charged. I leave it unplugged all day and then by 5pm when I check...

Sorry but it sounds like weak batteries. I would replace both batteries and after installation fully charge before use. Then ask Mom to use the chair more each day so you can charge them overnight each day for the next 20 days. It will break in the batteries and get them operating at 100%. If you can get her to use it more and charge it overnite and always put it up at full charge the batteries should last 2-3 years Hope this helps

New battery. ran good for a day. next day battery dead. there is no headlight,horn,nothing!!!!. got a neww battery again and same problem workes one day next day dead. I need a salution to my problem.


Sounds like a serious drain. First, fully recharge the battery, a new one should survive. By the way, disconnect the negative terminal until you get this all resolved...

So, charged battery, fluid up. connect the battery and measure the voltage at it's terminals. Start the bike and measure voltage again. Running, at 1500 to 2400 rpm, and lights off, you need 13.8 to 14.2 volts. I bet that you may not see much of an increase.

Turn off engine, everything off, Disconnect the negative battery terminal, and put a test light in series. Does it light, if so, start probing where something is grounded. On Bikes, that is often the diodes in the charging system. That is one of the first things to disconnect and check test light at the battery... (to be clear: in series means that the test light connects to the removed negative wire, and the test light's grounding end goes to the battery. It completes the circuit.)
Keep moving and disconnecting until you have no light at the battery test light...

Another way of measurement is to remove negative battery cable and connect the leads of a voltmeter to batt terminal and negative wire.

This is the process to get what is happening. When a charging system diode fails, (diode is a one way "valve" for electricity, allowing current to move in one direction, but not the other) the power runs right to ground through a failed diode or two. They just fail eventually.

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...

Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.

Engine conking out!

I had a very similar problem when I first got my XV250. The problem was it ran out of fuel. Fail. It only has a range of around 60 miles.

Alternator problem

1.You need to install a Fully charged battery, before you install a new alternator. Otherwise it will burn the alternator up.

2.I read what you typed about installing a new battery. Was the new battery fully charged, and was it installed before the new alternator?
See number 1 above.

I have an 04 yamaha v star silverado classic cruiser with a stalling no start issue! here is what happens i recently installed new battery connections cleaned and tighten and took bike for a drive while...

It's your stator failing, these bikes are notorious for bad stators. A failing stator means the bike can't produce the electricity it needs to run, and the bike is running on the battery only. Replace the stator and make sure your battery is fully charged and you will be good to go.

2007 dodge charger patrol car V-8. Replaced battery once and car is dying again. Dodge finds nothing wrong and we replaced power gardian to equipent, but car still dies. Sits for a day and dead the next.

Is this still being used as a patrol vehicle? Still has a laptop charging station and all that junk? You need to do a parasitic draw test. Do you have an ammeter?
