You should have no problems when using that charger to charge your battery -- ( 2200mA = 2.2amps), this is a safe charge rate.

You can connect a good battery to thr dead one and it will give tour charger a battery to charge until your dead battery gets some charge. You can now safely disconnect the good battery./

Did you ever get this figured out? I have same problem on '04 V Star 1100. Started to take off from a stop sign and everything went dead. Found fuse under seat, it's good; battery is good, put on charger anyway... NOTHING electrical works when you turn on the key. HELP?!

When tried to crank all i get is clicking. Has a new starter, silanoid, and battery

Unless it's the starter its self (Which I think is pretty unlikely) I would STILL go for it being the battery. Has it EVER started on the new battery? Or is it possible that the new battery was supplied flat and requires charging before use (Some do come this way). Classic flat battery signs are not just the click, but as you hold the starter button down, the click becomes a buzz as the solenoid repeatedly engages and disengages as the battery power fails. This will be accompanied by a the headlight dimming to the point of almost going out.

My first simple step would be to take off the right hand side panel so you can get to the battery and take a set of jump leads to it from your car. I'll predict that it will start this way, demonstrating that your new battery is flat.

If this is the case, you will have proved it. Now you then have the choice of riding the bike around for an hour to get the battery up to closer to full charge, or putting it on a charger (CAREFUL of the output from the charger! some car battery chargers will cook a bike battery and wreck it).

If the jump start doesn't work, then you know you have ruled the battery out as the culprit, or at least ruled it out as the ONLY cluprit. It's now time to find out if the solenoid is putting power to the starter by testing it with a volt meter.

I replaced my battery and the bike ran but didn't charge the battery.

This would run down the battery. So get the alternator of the bike repaired so that it starts charging again. May be the lead got disconnected and there was no need for a new battery.

Battery overcharging

Check your regulator/rectifier output is it according to standard.
Is your battery in prime condition as a minimal caopacity battery retention will make the alternator/charger produce a higher output level to quickly charge the battery to optimal state.
Good enough?

I attempted to cranked my 2003 yamaha V Star for the first time this year and the battery was dead so I recharged it overnight. I tried to crank it again today and dash lights and everything went out. No...

your battery may show 12volts on the multimeter at rest but may drain imediatly it is placed under load if you have access to a load tester this will enable you to determine the true condition of the battery but it certianly sounds like its time for a new battery

Starter will not turn over dew to buzzing under seat

buy a new battery shelf life is not 2 yrs the only other thing that would have saved this battery is a trickle charger or battery maintainer

2003 Yamaha 650 Classic No power from the battery or a charger.

At 55 amps you could charge the batteries on the space shuttle. A 2 amp charger is plenty. You cooked the three year old battery so a new one will be needed. Get the new battery then worry about the fuses only if the bike is still dead. The fuses are under the battery side cover if I recall correctly. Look under the seat if not by the battery.

Please rate this solution as a " FixYa ". Thanks!
