For the past few days I've been unable to start my 06 ninja 650. I charged the battery for about 3 hours on Saturday then it managed to start so I took it out for an hour drive. Sunday morning I tried to fire it up and take it out but it wouldn't start... so I recharged my battery from 3 till 11 and it started up just fine... This morning I tried to start it and it didnít work once again.
So I took my battery out and went to Crappy Tire to get it tested and they told me it was dead.
In any case, I've bought a replacement battery.. A Motomaster Eliminator battery for 120 dollars after tax. I haven't put any acid in the battery yet because I wanted to ask you guys a quick question.
My stock battery is a YTX12-BS and the battery I bought is a 12-BS. The battery is the exact same size as my stock battery... the only thing that seems to be different is the charging method.
My stock battery says "STD.: 1.2Ax5~10h or QUICK: 5.0Ax1.0H" My new battery says "STD: 1Ax5~10h QUICK: 2Ax3H"
This should work fine for my bike correct? Iím going to put the acid in the battery tomorrow morning so please get back to me soon. Also, does this seem like a reasonable price for a motorcycle battery?? This is the first battery Iíve ever had to by for a bike and it seems a bit steep considering how small the battery is.
Let me know.
