R1200 CL Battery problem

I have similar problem. I have purchased new battery, however after 2 days sitting in gar.age the battery is flat. I have had the altenator removed & checked, nothing wrong with that. I have isolated seat heater, stereo, heated hand grips. Still no solution. The bike in the shop for the next 4 weeks while I am away. Hopefully they find something. If so I will post solution. Fingers crossed

Batteries have a service life of 2-5 years. It seems like your battery is in need of replacement. Have it tested, or if it is more than 3 years old, just get a new one.

Packard bell netbook nav50 battery stopped charging properly. bought a new charger and battery and it still wont charge it up.

LOL, I didn't know Packard Bell was still making computers. I would think they sold you a bad battery. I've purchased new batteries before that would not charge.

I have a 2007 Yamaha V Star 1300 tourer that I just purchased. After sitting for 2 days, the battery was too low to crank. I checked the battery connections and put on the battery tender for several hours....

The battery is probably old and cannot hold a charge anymore. New batteries are relatively cheap. Try buying a new battery, folow the instructions to the letter, and you should have no problems anymore.

Batafter going flat after sitting for 2 days

Sounds like it no longer is able to hold a charge. After repeated starts and charging by alternator, as a battery ages it doesn't charge as deeply. Sounds like yours is on it's way out. To verify and good auto parts store or shop can load test it to confirm that.

Engine wont turn over at start

Hi, Do you have an alarm & Immobiliser fitted on your bike as these drain the battery on your bike very quickly? If so i would recommend removing your battery and fully charging it with a decent amp-age charger. If you have your garage attached to your house then i would definitely recommend purchasing a trickle charger and when not using your bike keep this plugged into the mains and you should not have this problem again. all motorbike shops sell these chargers If after this the battery goes flat again i would suggest purchasing a new battery. This is a common fault as most motorbikes sit in the garage through the winter months and if not kept on charge will deteriorate. Hope this helps.

Battery life only last one full day on normal usage n web surfing and music and video

The battery is nearly worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and the maximum battery capacity reduces with age and use.
You need to purchase a new battery.

The battery on my cordless drill will not keep its charge, it goes flat very quickly. Can they be repaired or can I purchase a new battery? I have a Firestorm 14.4v drill. The product no. is HP146F2K. I...

You did not mention the age of the drill machine, normally the life of any battery does not last more than 3years, maximum, so if it has crossed the limit then change the battery- Vikram,India

Bmw R1200cl won't start battery fully maintained just a fast clicking noise when starter pressed could this be a solenoid or the starter itself?

A fully maintained battery does not guarantee a good battery. The fast click is almost always caused by insufficient power. If you've checked the connections, try jumping from another 12v battery. If that gets the crank to turn, have the battery load-tested, or just replace the battery.

A new battery installed by you is still going to be far cheaper than having a mechanic diagnose this, and if a new battery doesn't do it, it's very likely the starter getting old, dragging, and drawing more power than the battery can deliver.
