So the other day I noticed my bike was idling a little rough, seemed almost like it was missing a bit, then progressively got worse it would miss a bit under acceleration below 3000 rpm’s but had good high end power. I noticed that when I started it that morning it seemed like the battery was low as it turned over very slowly.
Eventually it got to the point where the guage pod would blank out and the bike would shut off while riding and my temp guage read HI and my engine light even flashed on and went off, so I took it to Yamaha and only made it half way, the bike died and went completely dead.. nothing when you turned the key.
Got it to the mechanic, he charged the battery and everything works fine, says hes been running it for half an hour and hasn’t noticed a single problem.
he tested the alternator and says theres nothing wrong with that either.
My question is do you think its possible that a low battery could cause that much stuff to happen? Do you think its just time to replace the battery or is there something else going on there that is just not peeking its head out at the moment?
