Battery problem

Hi Just bought a cbr600rr 03 and the seller told me I had to change the battery ! I changed it last week ! I never touch the bike since, and today I took it. It starts great..did a 15 minutes run and come back home... I wanted to change the clock but my buttons doesn't seem to work...so I had the idea to re-start the engine... and the battery was dead... battery is new and 15 minutes before everything was alright... can it be my anti-theft system that drain the battery ?

It has a Merlin 2000







help me... im sure it is not normal that the battery was draining like that ...

Alarms are pron to suck battery juice and for bike batteries it would not take much to kill the battery even a short test for new Hid lights or a new set of turn signals without the engine running will drain the battery dry i would follow crash's advice and see what happens

10 minutes does not seem long but its possible that the battery was not fully charged to begin with so that with the clock test might have finished it off .

Your clock might not reset if the 2 white buttons that are below the 2 rubber black push buttons have gotten loose from their mounting points within the cluster itself .

This problem was & is a common issue with the 03 to 06 RR's if nothing is blinking when the Black adjust and reset buttons are held down then what i stated above has taken place if it fixable yes it is very easy to fix

Do not worry about your English you are doing great so far i would not throw away the old battery get it charged up then take it to an auto parts store and ask them to load test it that will prove its either good or dead after all

As far as the cluster buttons i need to know first did you notice any blinking going on when you pushed the black rubber buttons or not ? If not then you need to remove the black buttons and tell me if you see any white buttons sticking in these holes or not ?

I took a reading of my charge system... at 3 000 rpm the battery shows 13,86volt ! so my charge system is OK. after 2-3 weeks without taking it...if the alarm system was the problem... I couldn't start it ! ...so im pretty sure it was my 10 minutes ON with light without the engine running... will see ! I will waiting about my battery to get full charge !

Not likely to be caused by the alarm...

When you left the bike on for 10 mins, you can't forget that the headlights would have been on as well - this is what drained your battery, and there is nothing surprising or abnormal about that.

Your bike is fine, your alarm is fine, your battery is fine (once it has been charged). Just remember that the headlights come on when you turn the key on.
