Question about 2003 Yamaha WR 250 F
I have had a problem with the starting of this bike 1st ride of the day,after that it will start fine so I looked into that. I disconnected the neg. side of the battery and put a volt meter in line which indicated battery voltage so I knew I had a drain.I unhooked the multi-funtion display unit and the drain stopped. My question is, should this draw power when the switch is off to retain the memory? Or is there a short in the thing? My thinking is that it should only draw power when the switch is on.
aside from hallogen fog lamps, i cannot think of other matters / parts of a bike that can drain the battery. this is a clear short issue. check the wirings and make sure that the circuits are harnessed, you'll see the difference once they are tied up. BTW, if the battery is a year old, have it recharged.
