Hi guys,

So I've run into a bit of a problem, old battery kept dying on me. Bought a new one and after a dune trip had some problems starting it, when it eventually started I rode for a while and when a stopped it wouldn't start again.

Just wondering whether something could be wrong because I've fully charged the battery and when the bike idles the voltage reads around 13.9- 14.

I want to have the new battery tested today, hopefully this one isn't buggered as well.

Any hints as to what this may be?

Thanks, that's what I expected the values should be. I have a decent multi-meter that should be accurate enough. Will keep you posted as soon as I've got the tests done.

Nope, I've never ran it without a battery have had it jump started off a car battery and driven it around in the hopes of getting the battery charged a bit but failed miserably. I remember trying this with my old 400ex which worked fine after a quick 15-20min ride.
