Dude and Dudesses,

I have an '06 600rr and my battery is not keeping a charge. I took it to Autozone to get that junk charged and it ran for a few days. However, after a few days in good ol' Nebrasky coldness, my bike has sat idle. I suspect either I have a crap ass stock battery or something is draining it. Before I pay for help I thought I would ask the crowd.

Doug

Is the bike 100% Stock?

What are your riding habits and environment? Wheelies? Potholes? Smooth roads? At what rate was the battery recharged and for how long? What is the bike's history? Has it ever gone down?

yo man I got the same problem, gotta 05, all my mods in my sig. & I noticed that if I don't ride for like 2 days the bike cranks weak if I start it, my remedy? I just disconnect the battery & hook it up to a battery tender for the two days

imajollybengali: It's probably because of your Scorpio Alarm. I'm surprised that disconnecting the battery doesn't set it off... which leads me to believe that it was installed incorrectly.

just because the dealer installed it doesnt make it right

also the extra drain on the battery from the underglow and the HIDs might be putting too much work on your stator to keep the battery charged when you ride it.

Ask the guys at autozone not to load test your battery
and not just charge it the test will tell you if the battery
is good or not

that's what they did actually. i think i will go buy a ohmmeter and keep an eye on a fresh full charged battery and see if the battery itself can't keep the charge. hopefully that is the problem!

Well, for one, I would skip autozone and take it to a honda dealership and have them test the battery with thier Midtronics tester. If the battery tests bad, then obviously get a new (Yuasa) battery. If it tests good, charge it up (12.6v stable) and install it in the bike. Crank up the bike, and put a voltmeter on the battery terminals...rev the bike to about 5k rpms....the voltage should increase with rpm's and top out around 13.5 - 14 volts. If you don't see 13.5 - 14 volts, then you need to get out the manual and test your rectifier/regulator and stator. Also, check for amp draw with the key on and off.
