Xt350 not charging battery

Recommended Posts

My xt had no battery when I first got it and the lights were dim on tick over but fine when riding , so I put a battery in and wired it up exactly as the Haynes manual wiring diagram shows , the battery makes the lights a lot better but it doesn't get charged from the bike and I have to re charge it about once a fortnight , why ???????

The lights and ignition have their own coils if I remember correctly. Your charge portion could be non-functional, and probably is. The lights have their own coil, which is why you only have lights when the engine runs.

Bear in mind the bike will not charge a sick/low battery, but will maintain a good one.
