Battery Trouble - September 23, 2012, 07:26 PM

I don't have all the information together yet on trouble shooting the stator/rectifier from the book but just had a quick question that I can't find an answer for so I thought I would ask on here..




The battery dies after 2 days which is two trips to work and work to home. One way trip is about 50-60miles so lil over 100 miles a day with speeds + 55mph


if I go and put it on the battery charger each day when I get home and it would be fully charged when I left for work would doing this kill the lifespan of the battery?

How old is the battery?

And yes, it doesn't do the battery any good to run it down completely. If it leaves charged and comes back dead....rectifier / charging system isn't doing it's job. I did that for a racebike with a total loss setup. Batteries would generally last about a year. But it would be on the charger between practices/races. Never longer than about 30 minutes of ride time without a charge. (Harder use, shorter timeframe)

the battery is o most a year old maybe a little younger or older...it's not completely dead on the first day maybe half way-ish?


I was going to do the trouble shooting today/tonight but my family was visiting my farther-inlaws because it was his birthday today and wanted to see his grandson
