Arrow Battery problems

So my stock battery when out so I bought new one. With battery fully charged I installed it, bike turned on and I took it out for a spin came back home turn it off. When I try to restart it, it didnt. So i thought must be a deffective batt and i got it exchange for a new one.

Installed the 2nd new battery and the same thing happen. Installed it, took it for a spin, went home, turned it off, and when i try to restart it, it wouldnt.

So Im thinking is something internal that is wrong with the bike. What can it be?? The stator ? anyone else had this problem before. I have 2006 GSXR 600.

Any feedback would be appreciated... thanks.

Have you tried charging the battery with a trickle charger? They are weak out of the box. You may have a charging system issue, but I would make sure the battery is charged first.

While the motorcycle is on the stator should be charging the battery. It should give you a constant voltage.

+1 - if your voltage continues to drop then its a possibility it could be the stator, also check for any loose connections. Good Luck!

Not much though. You shouldn't get a voltage gain throughout the RPM band. It should peak at 14 volts or so.

^^ this is correct. Check across the positive and neg terminals of the battery with the bike running. At idle the voltage should be at least 12 and go up to around 14 with a couple thousand RPM.
If this isn't happening then your charging system isn't working. The only way to tell why would be using a service manual to troubleshoot the various components.

When you say "took it for a spin" was this a long or short ride?

When you say "didn't start" do you mean the starter wouldn't crank or that the bike wouldn't come to life?

both time I took it out for a "spin" it was no more than 10 minutes, so it was a very short ride around the neighborhood.

and

when it didnt start.. it would crank the first and second time, after that it wouldnt even crank. The lights would just get dimmer and dimmer.


Alright, so if its something internal i.e. stator or electrical stuff who can take care of it?? who should i go to? I stay SE houston. Pearland PKWY.

I'd recommend Motorcycles Unlimited. They'll be picky enough to make sure it's 100% correct.

+1 on this.

It could be starter related. Especially if you said it won't start on a fully charged battery.

I'm actually having similar problems with my '06 600. I had replaced the rectifier a month or so ago, but now my starter is being finicky. I haven't diagnosed it yet.

I also have a manual for your bike if you want it.
