OMG kipper that is damn lucky. I am glad all is well. I would have shat a brick!!!
So this morning at 8:30am and 41 degrees I took the battery from inside the house off the trickle charger and put it back in the bike. She fired right up no problem. I turned her off after a minute, went inside and finished getting ready. When I left for work she started again but with a small hiccup. After work about 55degrees out and she started fine but with the same little hiccup.
I would think this test isolates the two. 1. Cold bike, all connections cold. 2. Warm battery, 60+ degrees instead of the normal 45 degrees where I have been having problems.
Seems it is my battery and I am gonna go have the shop check it out tomorrow. Perhaps I got a dud battery? Is that likely? Perhaps there is something else up with my bike that is messing up my batteries? I'd love to fix this if its my bike.
I plan on buying an optimate charger as I have heard good things. From what I understand it desulfates batteries and perhaps this will help my situation?
Keep the rubber side down!!!
