3 years for a CBR battery?
Hi, I have a 2005 CBR 600rr it's currently at 9900 kms (Yes kms, not miles). My bike needed a jump yesterday after a couple hours of riding, not even being parked over night? Wondering if this is a common or known issue with Honda CBR's? For a bike that is 3 years old?
After a couple hours of riding yesterday I stopped at a friend's house for 20 mins or so. After I got out, tried starting the bike but it wouldn't? Luckily we had cables and I was able to jump it.
Rode home (35 mins away on the highway), tested the battery by turning off the bike and starting it up a couple of times with no issues. This morning I tried starting up the bike again, it worked...
Wondering if CBR batteries only have a lifetime of 3 years or so? Also if this is the case for all bikes, etc...
Since I bought it (1 year old) I've either ridden the bike every week or have trickle charged the battery monthly.
Your help is appreciated.
