Bought a NEW BATTERY FROM DEALER, BUT BATTERY IS ALREADY DRAINED

Hey guys i have a 2004 R6 and I bought a brand new battery from yamaha of Hollywood and i put it on and the bike turned on fine but after an hour or so of turning the bike on and off my bike wouldnt start anymore so the battery drained again. I jump start it at second gear and it fires right up but i really dont know why my battery is getting drained so fast. What do u guys think the problem is?stator?Voltage Regulator?Reclifier? I truely dont think its my stator because when i jump start my bike is turns on and when its on the bike runs and doesnt turn off. LET ME KNOW PLEASE THANKS!

Did u charge the battery before you installed it ?
Regardless of charging it or not You drained the battery of what ever power it had simply because of the ON & OFF action you were doing
without actually riding the bike or using a battery tender the battery will never recharge itself



If it doesn't challange you it won't change you

i am suprised you got a battery that already had acid in it.
every new battery i have ever had to buy needed to have the acid put into the cells.

wait, you didnt throw away the plasic bottle full of a strange tasting liquid did you?

Problem with the alternator?

Same thing happened to one of my cars one time. Alternator was fried so I could charge the batt and it would work for a few days and then die again.

If you sat there for an hour and a half just turning the bike on and off, firing it up, shutting it down... then there's your problem. That's all battery. You're draining it just going through and repeatedly firing up the bike then turning it off. Why would you do that? And why would you do that for 1.5 hours?

Charge it, you should be fine. You usually have to let the bike run for at least an hour or so before the stator can give any kind of charge back to the battery. So it doesn't surprise me that you drained it.

yeah you gotta charge batteries for at least 2 hours before installing them, + just letting it idle drains it

your stator doesn't start to charge your batt until after about 5k

so what you guys are saying is that even though you bought a brand new gel battery from the dealer you need to charge it before installation? I just did the same today and ran my bike without charging the battery.

something's fishy. new battery should be good after getting it from the dealer. ur doing something to drain that battery quick. new batteries should be fine once u install them. why would u have to recharge a brand new battery?? if ur problem persists, i suggest get ur bike looked at.

batteries come without first charge. when I bought mine they charged it for me, but I think either I had to ask them to or they asked me if i wanted them to. I otherwise wouldnt have known it needed it.

Also, fyi, if you get a battery shipped to you it comes without the acid.
