I don't know the answer to this, but it's not necessary.. just run it down the street and pop the clutch in second gear, it'll start right up
i tried, it wouldnt start, and i dont have any friends who are willing to push me (fat lazy bastards). the battery takes a charge up to 13 volts and holds it, then i put the fucker in and as soon as i hit the start button it just clicks, doesnt even try to turn over. ill meter it and it will be sitting at about 12.2-12.4 volts and its just not enough to start the bike. i had it started and running about a month ago for a week and then it started snowing again and i havent started it since. but i returned the charger station i was using
with a quick google search
Same story as mine, started it every so often during the winter and then just forgot about it. The only problem I had was attaching the large auto sized clamps to the smaller battery of the bike. Had to unbolt the fusebox to access the GND, and the POS was real close to the frame.
Just don't start the car and you'll be alright.
ok, thats the answer i was looking for, i made some google searches last night and found some very contrasting info and just thought i would ask people who were in the know. thanks a bunch
Did you not ride your bike over the winter or something? Just curious of why your battery is dead. A float charger can be had for around $30 if you ever leave it for an extended time or just need a charge.
i've done it a couple of times, no problems. just make sure to not have the car running.
i live in wisconsin, have you seen the winters around here?
lol, pop the clutch you pussy
winter isnt that bad up there
i tried, couldnt get it to fire,
i was checking voltage with the battery out of the bike and i was getting 12.5-13.0vdc. i thought that was good, still it wasnt starting. so finally i put the fucker in after charging it, clicked on the ignition and lights and checked the voltage and i was only pulling 10.8 from the battery, turned the ignition off and 12.5 vdc again and dropping, fucker was shot. had to run to the store for a new battery
