  • BATTERY ROOTED?????

    I went out this afternoon to give the old girl (cbr600 2000 model non fuel injected)a bit of lovin and low and bhold she's got a flat battery anyway after push starting it down the road i managed to get it going. Took off from hillarys, up towards oceanreef and joondalup keeping the revs up for about half an hour but when i got home i turned it off went to start it and its still dead.
    Do bike batteries charge up from near dead or does the lights and stuff put to much drain on them to charge properly???

    CBR600 :?

    Sounds like you've got a rooted battery. When your bike is running the alternator constantly charges the battery (hence your lights etc working). Since your battery is rooted it wont hold its charge when the engine is off (and the altnertor not spinning) to put it bluntly.

    A new battery is ~$56 (there a sealed unit which u make up). Go buy one and your problem will be solved, you'll also notice your engine behaviour at low rpm will probably run a lot smoother than it is atm with the stuffed battery

      Get your regulator/rectifier checked as well
      If you can... you MUST!

        Marlows used to have a free battery/alternator check, maybe these type of stores still do it.

        But yeah make sure you suss out whether it's the battery or the -alternator- (*looks at Klinks post* is a rectifier a bike alternator?).

        I remember getting a new battery for my car thinking my old one was rooted, then the new one died in the arse 3 days later. Thennnn someone said it's your alternator not putting charge into your battery.
        mmmmm sacrilicious

          If it's been sitting awhile good chance you've dropped a cell, (if bike batterys are the same as cars?)

          Supacheap auto's have feree battery testing, run it in there, pull the battery out get it tested, if it bad grab a new battery plug it back in and head home happy

                Battery World have good prices, and if you buy the battery there then the salesman will fill the battery with the acid for you, so you can chuck it straight in without having to pissfart around filling the battery up yourself...... Least he did with me, but maybe thats because I tripped just walking into the store, he might have thought I would kill myself if given acid

                    Please note, if your regulator/rectifier has crapped itself you'll very soon find yourself with a nice shiny flat brand new battery.

                    Have it checked at your local bikeshop.

                            Hi

                            Had the same problem I work away alot and every time i come home the battery is flat and after you charge the battery a few times it gets worse and worse. So got a new battery and one of those battery savers, plug it into the mains when you are not using it and it trickle charges the battery when it drops to lower level neva had battery problems since.. :twisted:

                              you should be able to just disconnect the battery ans store it for a few weeks at least without it going flat. It's when they are left connected and not used they die in the ass pretty quick
