  • Swapping out battery on 848 evo - simple right?

    Yep battery on the 848 needs swapping out.

    Happy to work on this bike myself to take the love to new heights.

    Anything to consider before attempting? E.g. battery support to keep settings?

    Anyone done it themselves? It is a simple job right? Any hidden technical wonders?

    Wow that didn't take long??



    Done a few in my time,

    straight forward as can be, just remember there are a heap of nuts on the inside of the LHS fairing that take years to screw out, take your time and just remember where all the screw came out as there are 2 different sizes,

    BTW good time to clean under the fairing while your there and make sure its on the rear stand.

      I'm its second owner. Bikes done 100kms in last 2 months and buggar all this year. Expected the battery to be on the way out.

      Good to know the fairing is the hardest part of the job. Was getting worried about fancy electricals etc. You live nearby, wanna hook up? Wanted to talk to you about Clean Rides....

        disconnect negative terminal first and reconnect negative terminal last....


        don't want any sparklys or go letting out the magic smoke by shorting the positive terminal while the battery is still grounded on the bike.
        Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

        when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

          Im flat out over the next two days but can swing past Saturday arvo-ish but I'm sure you will have it sused by then,


          its not hard at all, just take your time and be carful with the tools so you don't scratch the soft paint

            Does it need a battery ?

            The missis 848 turns over very slow too but battery checked out perfect

              ^^ what [MENTION=35343]GIXXEN[/MENTION] said - are you sure you need a new battery? I've got a 1098, they turn over quite slowly when you're trying to start them - as long as it starts in the first or second go you should be right. If you DO need a new battery, I'd recommend you get either a MotoBatt or a Deka.

                i put a Shorai Lithium in the 1198 a few months ago. Simple job, and made a HUGE difference to cranking.

                  Yeah, I have a 12 cell Motobatt AGM in place of the original 9 cell Yuasa SLA that came in the GSX.

                  Makes a big difference to starting the bike, and how it starts after not being ridden for a while.

                      Yep. Lights dim and fails to start. This was after I discovered the park lights key setting! Liked it a bit too much for a bit too long!

                      Trickle charge is built in, this is how the bike gets started currently, voltage sitting at around 11.7, drops to 11.3 with lights on and this is at full charge and green light with the trickle charger.

                      Battery definitely fubar.

                          I bought mine online from over east, Give Pro Twin a call though, Pretty sure they have them.

                              just with the lithium's, make sure any charger you have/buy doesn't have a desulfation mode.. or KABOOOM
