    So tell me if anyone else has had this problem, first off let me preface this with the 2 guys working on the bike. They rock they can tear down the electrical system to its most basic and test it to extreme precision. So here's what happened took a ride to a local burger place on Sunday, bike died pulling in, I was going 30 so I bumped it, it started, parked it and admired others bikes that were there, got on to leave bike didn't start. Thought great WTF happened to the bike, messed around w it for 10-15 mins, finally it started, rode off, it died about a mile away from burger place. It never started back up, so I called Bob Jones to come rescue me, fast forward, the bikes battery sucks, so after it was teched out, the battery had enough juice to run lights but not crank, I guess the point of all this is, anyone else had a battery take a dump and leave you stranded? I will never buy a bikemaster battery again, they just suck!

    • Yea mine died in 36 degree ride. I keep it on a tinder now when I'm not going to ride for a while. Haven't had the problem since

    • I got an AGM battery this last time, and I keep it on a tender when I am not going to ride it for a week or so.

    • The one I got was an AGM as well but it was junk

    • Very possibly. Do you have long periods of time between rides?

    • Well it went from one shop to another, then it went to paint but it was less than 45 days and was started several times to test etc.

    • Well, it's possible you got a bad battery, and just as possible that your charging system isn't working right.

    • Check the rectifier regulators. Make sure the connection is clean. I went through several batteries before I found this connection was bad in one of the regulators

    • The battery is fine until a load is put on it, then it fails miserably and quick

    • Probably a dead cell, has voltage but can't handle the current draw

    • Once u replace the battery, u need to ensure that your charging system is working.

    • Thank you sir!

    • "U r welcome

    • Hell i had the bike die, towing was talking a 4 hour wait, so walked it three miles home, it was getting dark so had it in the own for light, was completely dead by the time i made it home. You guys will find this hard to believe to pushing a 900 pound bike 3 miles sucks, Iit was humid so soaked through my pants and shirt and actually had to toss them they smelled so bad, hell next time I will either wait for the tow or park the bike that was the last incident for the year i hope

    • That is combat training!

    • No, that was idiotic, my impatience gets the best of me 100% of the time, didnt go to the gym the rest of the week after that,lol

    • Impatient? Lol, don't tell me!

    • lol
