Fe350s computer battery dieing fast

Recommended Posts

Hello all-- not sure of the issue with my computer (speedometer, odometer). Bought the bike brand new 18 months ago. OEM quarter-sized battery lasted about 12 months. Now the batteries I am putting in there are lasting less than a month!  It's irritating! Every time i turn bike off and on the mileage and time get reset.  Anyone have any ideas?  I've removed the front headlight assembly and there doesn't seem to be any wires disconnected.  

 

Thanks in advance!

Are you using generic watch type batteries you found online somewhere? I have had this problem in my gshock watches and even red dot optics when I bought a bulk package of no name batteries once.. I ended up selling them all to a neighbor for less than $1 a piece.

The mileage cant reset because of the battery, the tripometer can.

so if the actual mileage is resetting, then the speedo is bad.

 

as far as the battery its good for years , so if related shim the battery and the cap about 20'' thousanths

 

edit, forgot you don't have the newer ktm speedo, so facts may change.

I'll try a pricier battery and hope for the best. It's not the odometer resetting; it's the clock and trip resetting every time I turn the bike off.
