Yeah I assumed as much. Thanks again!
Yeah I don't think there is anything actually wrong anymore. I think either there was a loose connection that I fixed, or the battery was starting to run a little low and I wasn't riding it long enough for the charging system to charge it.
I already know all of the things you listed, I'm not clueless, just never heard that sound before. And the battery was charged using an automatic charger similar to the one you linked to (but higher quality). And I jumped it with my car off.
Anyway, I'll stick to short rides for the next week or so and see what happens.
Most of the Tenders only PRESERVE what charge it has. It "might" give it a pep but its not made to charge batteries. Some of the newer battery tenders are made to charge AND tend. That could be the whole problem-but im sure you are going to say you have the "charger/tender"..lol This reminds me of the damper situation.I don't understand what you're trying to say. Yes there was obviously something wrong with the charge at the time time this happened. When I got it home I put it on the tender... The thing fired up fine later that day.
I left it on the tender for 24 hours and took it off. Multimeter showed between 12-13v.
I let it sit for almost 48 hours. Multimeter still showed between 12-13v.
I went for a 30 mile ride. Multimeter still showed 12-13v.
And it still fired up fine when I restarted it.
To me that says the battery and charging system are both fine... I don't get what you are saying.
And yes you are right. Only two wires go to the battery but I disconnected and reconnected both when I put it on the tender because I use the rings on my tender, not the clamps.
I suspected the battery, but I tried jumping it with no luck.
Battery is brand new. Bought about a month ago when I took the bike out of storage. I guess there is a chance I burned out the started when I had the starting issue back then.
Sorry for the triple post, but a little more info:
So I dunno, maybe it is a shitty battery... Or R/R even?
Wow thanks for the post. I was actually going to be doing large circles around my neighborhood within the next couple days to see what happens.
The thing that pisses me off if it is the battery or R/R is 1.) I replaced the R/R under recall a year ago even though my original one didn't appear to be faulty... so if the new one is faulty I'm going to be cranky with the dealership. 2.) Battery is brand new... like 2 months tops.
Oh well though. We will see what happens.
