just came out the garage installing my new everstart walmart batter

cranked with no problem, restarted it 5 or 6 times with no problem...previously the bike would need a jump to run then when turned off the battery would be dead

but im going to do a test run around the neighborhood with my dad following in his truck (just to make sure everything is good) then hopefully ill be good tomorrow to ride

Check the charging system output. Easy to check, just use a volt meter while the bike is running. Check it at the battery, the volts should be around 13.8 volts. While the bike is off and after it's cooled down, check the battery the same way (while not running) and see if there's a power draw.

Good luck, I hope you've cured your woes!

good, just making sure, alot of guys fill it up, and throw it on the bike and ride off.


if the problem was your battery, you wont have any more problems, but if it was the stator/rectifier, after about 30 min or so of riding or more, and it will be dead again.

If your battery is the "wet" type (you had to add the battery acid) then be sure to keep an eye on the acid level. These hot Texas days can evaporate battery acid in no time. There should be a line near the top of the battery on the side indicating where the battery acid level should be. When it gets low just fill each cell with distilled water. Hope that helps.

i got an agm, it said the seal should never be removed after dumpin the acid due to the cells absorbing the acid and it will never spill
