XR250 Gremlins!


I have a 1996 XR250R that has a Baja Designs Dual-Sport kit installed. Is it possible for the rechargeable battery to cause it to not start. It was running fine and I removed it to charge it and now it will not start. Should it run without the battery plugged in, with the rectifier and all? It seems that the battery may have a dead cell?


The battery on the Baja Designs kits are there to power the tail light for 20 minutes if the bike crashes and stalls. This is a BMV requirement in a number of states. The battery does not affect the ignition system.
