  1. Im having a strange problem and need some help. I have a 2016 ktm xc-f 350 that keeps blowing the 10 amp starter relay fuse. About a month ago i was riding, I stopped and turned the bike off, went to restart it and got absolutely nothing. I bump started it and rode it back to the truck (bike ran just fine). Blown starter relay fuse. The bike starts up just fine with a new fuse. I figured out it only blows just about when I hit my rev limiter. I tried a new voltage regulator and it still did it, although my old voltage regualtor isnt charging the battery very well, so its probably going out. Now the weird part. I was going to take it in to the shop, so i took out my shorai battery so they wouldnt get picky about the warranty, and put the old lithium ion battery back in (battery had sit about 3 months so it wasnt 100%.). After i put it in, the bike had no issues. Stopped blowing fuses. I even swapped the batteries around twice to double check and it was the battery. After that i sent the shorai battery in and waited a week to hear what they had to say. In the meantime i went riding. All was well for over an hour, then i went to restart the bike at one point: nothing. Blowing the starter relay fuse again. I can put one in and it will blow right about when i hit the rev limiter just like before. I just heard from shorai yesterday and their battery tested out good, no issues, like a new battery. I have no lights or anything and have checked for shorts but cant find anything. The only thing ive done to the bike is 52 tooth sprocket and a throttle tamer. What the hell is going on. I will take it in if i need to but figured i would try this out first. Thanks!
  2. I want to start off by thanking all of you in advance for reading and responding to this post. I had my bike 2012 XR650L out about 3 weeks ago but I had to put a booster pack on the battery to get it to fire up. I then rode it a couple hours and parked it. Went back out after a few hours of rest and same thing very week battery. Put booster on. Fired right up. Now today same thing I had to put booster on cause battery was weak. So do you all think I just need a new battery if so what do your all recommend? or is something else going wrong? I could take the battery and get tested but wanted to just check with you all first. Thanks so much. Here is a pic of my battery.
  3. as anyone that rides an xcf knows we are 100% dependent on our batteries. My XCF is street legal with a light kit. But I need to add a fan as the bike is a Pizza Oven in the woods. My question, I have 70W to play with as I upgraded the stator. Can I run my additional loads (lights/fan) off the battery terminals and still expect the battery to keep charge? Or do I need to wire in a separately derived system?
  4. Hey guys, so I have been doing some work on a project I am working on and have recently put it back together and took it for a test ride. To start the bike I only used a battery but since I did not have a place to keep the battery (XR400 Frame) I did not keep it wired in the system. From what I have found out this may have caused my starting issue I now have (No spark). The bike is getting fuel and the battery is fully charged. So my guess is that from running without a battery I may have shorted out some of the electrical components though I am not sure which ones to check first and how to check them. I know I should check the stator, regulator/rectifier, and the CDI but I am not sure if one would be a better place to start over the others...my theory is to start with the cheap fixes first but it would be great to just figure it out first and then just replace what needs to be replaced. Any help is appreciated!

  7. Hello all, I have a 2006 TTR-125. The previous owner did not have a battery installed, so I bought one and installed it. (I bought a good one, Energizer, and the voltage and everything met factory specs) The bike started right up with the button and everything. The battery powered the bike for about two days of riding, with a light hooked up too. Now the battery is dead. I turn my bike off every time I am not riding it. Now, after riding it for about 6 hours fairly hard, the battery still has no charge. (It has enough charge to power the light, maybe for now, but not to turn the bike over) Why is the motor not charging the battery? What are some of the most common things I should check first? I should note that I know a decent amount about how to maintain, work on, and fix bikes, but when it comes to electrical stuff I have no clue. So it could be a very easy fix, like a wire not hooked up, or something to do with the ground wire. I am really lost when it comes to this stuff. Thanks in advance for all your help!
  8. hi, i just bought a new ktm 300xc 2017, and wondering how to maintain and keep charged and fresh the included lithium ion battery. I was used to plug a trickle charger from motomaster in my bike, but it says on the box, for charging lead acid and gel batteries... any advices? thanks!
  9. XR400EX

    400EX Battery

    I have a 400ex that I am looking to get a battery for and I am wondering what batteries out there would last the best and are the most reliable...I am interested in the antigravity batteries because of the size and weight reductions and since this is a somewhat custom build...those would be most ideal for this application..but does anyone know of other good reputable batteries or have experience with these antigravity batteries?
  10. I have a noco battery tender with a lithium ion mode, do you think it's best to charge these batteries with that? Can these batteries be charged with a regular charger? My dealer said it can only be charged with a lithium ion capable charger.
  11. I have left the key in the ON position too many times. I'm on my third lithium battery (haven't actually bought the 3rd yet). First time the dealer warranted the battery (even thought i'm sure it was my fault for leaving key on). 2nd time I bought an Anti-Gravity ATZ-7 RE-START. (three months ago, not cheap). The concept of the restart is that if you drain it down, it will cut out and save some energy that can be accessed after pressing button on battery. That seemed like the best solution, however, since I can't seem to stop leaving key on (no advice for that needed; I can't overcome it), I found out the re-start function doesn't have enough energy to start bike. Not all bad, because at least the battery is not drained to the point of damaging...bump start (not easy) and all good. However, even with the advanced circuits etc, I killed my expensive re-start by accident by shorting battery (ground touched positive for the shortest amount of time known to man). No big spark just a tiny little spark that turned my fully charged battery into something I can only get 3 volts from now...I assume it is dead. Two questions: 1. Does anyone know FOR SURE if a lead acid (sealed) battery can be used? If so, which model/brand etc (there are a million sizes and most are too tall to fit) 2. Does anyone know if there is a solution for these bikes after 2016 that can eliminate the possibility of killing the battery from leaving the key on? I've included a link to a previous discussion about key eliminator but that topic is 2016 and i've googled to see that it is not likely applicable to 2017+ (it seemed like the solution was to just remove a jumper, no parts needed). Loved the idea but I don't think it applies to models after 2016. https://thumpertalk.com/forums/topic/1091689-interesting-keyswitch-trick/ Thanks in advance for any help. First time poster, please be kind.
  12. Hello, I went to start my 2019 yz 250f today (electric start) today and the bike did not start or even try to i rode the bike on sunday and it was perfectly fine so i am not sure what the issue is and im wondering if anyone has any fixes. i started the bike (popstart) and went onto the yamaha app and it showed the battery was going from 14v to 13 to 12 back to 14 but once the bike is shut off the battery wont even crank. any info will help thanks.
  13. Hey all, I just bought a street legal 2005 WR250F. Took it out once three weeks ago. Did about 60 miles on the dirt and 15 on the road, bike ran great. I took it out this past Sunday and was about 75 miles into my ride when the battery died. The battery is cheap, but it is brand new and was on a battery maintainer the whole time while it sat in the garage. I kick started it, and it fired right up. I was on the road for about 5-10 miles in fifth gear when I felt the bike slow down a little bit, and I noticed the sound coming from the bike sounded a bit deeper than usual. About a half mile later the bike started to bog down like it was out of gas. I filled the tank back up and experienced the same problem. The bike began to bog down, then puttered out like it was out of gas. Eventually the battery completely died and I was not even able to kick start it. I trailored it home, hooked it up to the maintainer, waited a couple hours, and the bike fired right up with the electric starter and the choke out. However, it was still puttering a lot when it was idling at this time. If anyone knows whats up, I would appreciate any and all help. Thank you. #Yamaha#wr250f
  14. Anyone tried the BikeMaster Lithium Batteries as yet? They seem to be a reasonably priced battery!
  15. I have a 2008 WR250F dirtbike. My speedometer is very messed up along with something else electrical. First off, when I turn the key (I wired in a key ignition) the speedometer does not light up, the taillight doesn't work, and the headlight doesn't work. They only turn on when I kick it as my electric start doesn't work either. Then when I start to ride the speedometer reads anywhere from 100-189mph. Even when Im standing still, if I rev it up the speed will go up. Also I have gone through 2 AGM batteries in 4 months because they keep shorting out. Does anyone have any ideas on what is happening and how to fix it??? I need to sell it so I need to get this figured out. ***BTW I know that the problem does not stem from the new ignition I wired in because when those wires touch it blows the right fuse under the seat, happened to me when I was putting it in and that fuse is still good so no problems there.***
  16. I just got got a 18 EXC-F 450 six Days about a month ago, already have 200miles of singletrack/Enduro on her. Can someone, anyone please explain the electrical system as it relates to powering auxiliary devices, (flood lights, heated grips, etc) How much wattage is available? How much wattage can I use without impacting the battery? Does the system switch from battery to stator after engine starts? dont be afraid to get technical, i can take it.
  17. Hi, Hoping someone can help me in diagnosing the issue I'm having with my 2016 KTM 350 sx-f. Im currently on my 7th battery in just over a year, something is constantly draining them to the point its unable to be recharged. I have recently upgraded the battery tray and battery to the new 2018 bigger one and after 1 night the battery was dead. I have replaced the fuel pump relay as i thought this may have been the cause but does not seem to have solved the issue. When checking voltage and stuff the only thing i can think of is that it looks like the power is never shutting off as everything is live even 5 minutes after engine being turned off. This is with a new relay just fitted. Should there always be power? I assume not as this must be why the batterys drain overnight. Can anyone please advise on any ideas or anything I could check? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you
  18. Hey all..my first posting, so please be gentle, I have a 2004 DR-Z 400 'S' and having trouble getting it started as of late. Battery has a full charge with good, clean connections. All electronics and lights work properly, but when I hit my electric start I get nothing, and sometimes it starts right up. I'm thinking a loose connection somewhere. I was going to check all the wiring from start switch on down...perhaps the solenoid? I know it's simple enough to check, though I thought that I would run it by here first to see if there is something that I'm completely overlooking. Apologies if this was already covered as I didn't see it in the search thread...thanks all!! Best, Chris
  19. So I have a 2008 yz450f and I would like to add some LED lights to it to make it street legal. Mainly just a headlight and a tail light and turn signals if I need to (which where I live hand signals work). So where I need help is getting power from the stator to a battery. Wiring from a battery to anything else I got and understand and don't need help with (but recommendations are welcome). So my questions are. What type of power is coming from the stator. AC or DC? Will I need a regulator or rectifier? How do I wire something from the stator to charge a battery? What would that wiring look like? Would this stator http://www.rickystator.com/product/stators/yamaha/yamaha-yz450f-35-watt-lighting-stator-assembly-06-09 work? Anything else I should know? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  20. Hi everyone! For those of you who have not heard about this yet, I just wanted to introduce our latest product as an option for your battery replacement.... We invented a Lithium-Ion battery that won't leave you stranded! This battery will actually monitor itself and before it hits a point of being drained too far, it will put itself to sleep.... but, with just enough energy in reserve to start your bike and not leave you stranded. For example, if you were out riding and left your lights or some other accessory on accidentally over-night you would normally come back to a dead battery and have to get a push or jump start. OR if you're alone you might just be stuck. But with our new battery you just come back to it and push the RE-START button on top of the battery and the bike will start up and you can ride away. It's like having a built in jump starter. So now besides having a great light weight, powerful lithium battery, you also have one that offers you peace of mind. You can see the video below to get a bit more information.... or visit our website at antigravitybatteries.com If you have any questions please let us know as we're more than happy to cover the benefits and differences when using Lithium Batteries.
  21. So I need a new battery for my 12 XR650L. I think it has original factory in it. My battery just was not holding a charge very long I bought a battery tender plugged it in and it still wouldn't bring it fully back to life. So I'm looking at replacement batteries and I come across BANSHEE. Has anyone heard of this brand and if so what are your thoughts? They sell for around 30 and have a 4 year guarantee. Thanks I'll try and post a pic of what I found. Thank you.
  22. Hi all, I have a 2009 KLX-140L. Here's the story: The battery is less than a year old. I've not been keeping it on a tender between the last few rides, although I usually do (tender broke and haven't purchased a new one). It's been starting well. I took it riding on some trails last weekend. It started great, ran great, started / stopped many times during the day of riding. 5 miles from camp at the end of the day though, I went to start it and the battery was completely drained, the red ignition light could barely light up. Luckily I was on a hill and was able to clutch-start it and get back to the truck. Of course, it's very weird to have a dead battery AFTER a day of riding. So I assume the alternator wasn't charging the battery while I was riding. How do I know if the alternator is bad? (Is there a DIY or images of what the alternator looks like or where to find it?) How do I tell if the battery is bad (less than a year old)? How do I tell if it was just a loose connection somewhere? (I know the battery wasn't disconnected because there was enough to light the ignition light). What do I do? Thank you all for your help in advanced!
  23. There are a couple different sizes of WPS lithium batteries. Does any one know which one fits the 300RR?
  24. I just purchased a new 2017 KTM 450XC-F and really love the thing. I rode a buddy's 450 and knew it was the bike I was looking for. My 250 just wasn't doing it for me in the power department and I'm not fond of revving the bike to get what I need out of it. It starts fine, but it takes a couple of seconds for it to start up. Not a big deal for most, but I need it to start much quicker to be competitive for harescrambles. Looking up the battery, it doesn't tell me anything about turning amperage or anything of that sort. Curious to know if anyone has replaced the stock lithium battery to get something to be competitive off the line and what they found to be useful. Secondly, I really love the clutch on the bike. It's silky smooth, but once in a while the bike just flames out and it drives me nuts. I don't want to get a Rekluse, but I can't have it flaming out on me every 30min or so. Has anyone had issues like this and fixed it? I've heard the TPS may be something to look into, but don't want to start changing things drastically for a smaller issue. I prefer to get a good baseline of the bike and make tweaks here and there.
  25. Hey guys, I have a 2007 YZ450 and am about to install a LED headlight from Polisport. In order to accomplish this, I had to get a new stator from RickyStator to support the additional light wattage. Clearly I need a rectifier to "convert" AC to DC, but I am curious if I also need to install a battery. These bikes are kickstart only, so a battery would only serve to run the lights when the bike is off. The diagrams I have seen on this site show the rectifier connecting to the positive and negative terminals of the battery as a means of charging them. Is there a need for the battery? If so is there a way around this need? Thanks!
