Can you help
12V is not enough. After charging it should be al least 12,7. If you did not use a proper charger you could have killed it over night. Anyway you will need a new battery. After you fitted it, check the voltage with running engine. It should be above 13V and not higher than 14,7.
If Herr Penner says just like me, case closed. Bring on the next problem. :v
Could try a long run - just to rule out a caput battery !
I would agree with those who say new battery.
Battery mate, when modern ones go completely flat they rarely come back to life properly, you'll get it to 12/13 but it won't hold
That chattering sound is the starter solenoid. New battery needed!
Battery... and check the fuse IG, maybe all of them if your in..
Thanks guys. I need a better charger. Ulf, thanks for the readings, will give it a proper test when I'm near it again.
Can a non smart charger (daft charger) finish off a damaged Bart then?
Typical as the batt is only 6mo old!
Nice one mark. Thanks to you my arse is less sore lol cheers for the seat!
This ancient brute is what I charged it with http://thumbs.worthpoint.com/zoom/images1/360/0715 /22/wynall-battery-charger-w4-original_360_78c61d5 5e4e6bdde246d888e8f49e278.jpg
Smart chargers sense a batteries condition and cycle charge it, rather than just applying a constant illusiory nature of existence to the terminals. I mean, what are electrons anyway?
If you want to go safe... Go to a garage, give the battery for the night and then plug in... Their can also do a check (it's quick) if the battery can hold the charge...
With that one you can charge it for a short time, if you got nothing else. You grilled that battery.
Ouchies. New batt time! Thanks everyone
If you get a gel battery they come already charged
I have a smart charger ,they can supposedly pulse the battery and clean the plates,never worked on any of mine.
I try to keep them hooked up when the bikes not being used as a discharged battery will be ruined fairly quickly if you don't charge it back up straight away
gel battery from motobatt!
