  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. 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!
  4. XR400EX

    Running 400EX without a Battery

    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!

    Bad Battery? or Something Else?

    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.

    2016 350 XCF Electrical

    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?
  7. 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!
  8. 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.***
  9. 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.

    Loose solenoid wiring?

    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
  11. Anyone tried the BikeMaster Lithium Batteries as yet? They seem to be a reasonably priced battery!

    EXC-F Electrical Power

    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.
  13. 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
  14. 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

    What battery do I get?!

    I'm so lost... sorry if this has been asked before - noobie here - but what damn battery do I get for my 2015 DRZ400SM? Ive looked all over, and can't find any battery that will fit my bike. I've been looking at the Yuasa YUAM62T7B YT7B-BS Battery on amazon but it says it won't fit my bike..... please help!
  16. Ok so i put my rims and tires on for my supermoto conversion and it looks bad ass, i ordered a high out put stator to get rid of the problem i had with the baja designs light kit, so im installing it tonight, im curious as to whether or not i will need a new battery or special kind of battery for the new stator. its a trail tech high out put stator for my 2013 wr250f. i mean i guess ill find out tonight after i install it. i bought a new battery anyway that hopefully works out ok with no problems. but just curious if anybody else has experience with this.
  17. I would like to turn my 2004 crf250r into a duel sport. It is stock. I would like to put a light bar on the bars, brake light, and blinkers on front and back. I'm not familiar with electrical work or the stator, flywheel, etc. I was thinking about getting a small motorcycle/atv/lawnmower battery and finding somewhere to stick it on the bike and wire all my lights directly to that but that sounds sketchy. I also thought about finding a battery pack (probably lithium) powerful enough to push the lights. But idk where to start. I know I can run it to the stator but idk anything about that. Any information and tips will help me a whole lot. Please and thank you. I just really don't know where to start.
  18. I was thinking about ordering a Banshee YTX9-BS for my 2012 XR650L. They have them in eBay for around $24 dollars. They come with a 4 year warranty. Anyone ever heard of this brand or know of a descent one? I don't want the high price $100 battery at this time. Please help. Thanks and all comments are greatly appreciated.
  19. Hey guys, Im doing some work on my '01 DRZ400S and left my lights on a few times this season, which has turned my current battery into a paper weight. Installing a kick start at the moment, so battery performance is lower on the priority list from before and was willing to drop quality there to pick it up elsewhere. Has anyone tried the "Chrome Battery" branded batteries off Amazon? At $23 bucks i dont see how it could be that bad for a sealed AMG, but wanted to see if anyone has any experience - good, bad, ugly. For reference; Here is the URL for the YT7B-BS battery for my DRZ400 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DUJJ1A8/ref=s9_acsd_hps_bw_c_x_1_w Thanks

    Shorai shananigans

    A few weeks back I received my new Shorai battery charger. I was quite excited to try this clever little unit out, even more so because my battery had been sitting in the bike since November and it's been -30C a few times. I expected the little fella to be a bit cold and drawn down due to the lack of activity and the low temps. Initially I tried it in the garage but it just didn't want to cooperate and was throwing malfunction codes so I removed the battery and brought the works inside to warm up. After a few hours I attempted to charge the battery again. Everything seemed find but after thirty minutes it beeped and started flashing a fault code (4 flashes) which may be due to a high cell variation. I tried a few times and it just kept failing after 30 minutes or so. At this point I referred to the charging instructions which informed me to contact Shorai. So I wrote them an e-mail explaining the situation. Weeks passed and then last night I received a response. Firstly they were alarmed that I had installed such a small battery stating, "The LFX09 is way too small for the XR650L. IN fact it will probably melt the battery. That is generally for 250cc and below. Most XR650L have high voltage output as well so this can also overheat the smaller batteries.". They suggested the LFX19A4 but of course they are assuming that I'm installing it in the factory battery box. There is no way the LFX19A4 will fit under our seats. At this point I educated them on what we (XR owners) have been doing by linking them to a Shorai build thread on TT. Then they sent me a bunch of info regarding battery troubleshooting and cold weather use, for which I thanked them. They then wished me good luck and asked to be kept apprised of the health of the battery just out of curiosity. I solved the battery issue a couple of weeks ago by leaving it on the charger overnight in "store" mode. The following morning it accepted a charge properly and then went back in the BRP, where it cranked and fired the beast just fine. So that's just a bit of information that may be of some help to the members here who have Shorai batteries in their bikes. I can't attach the PDF files here but if you want them just shoot me an e-mail and I'll send them direct to you.
  21. Hi , 300 exc , 2017 six days, running perfectly for the last 9 months until last week. Noticed when I was riding the Fuel light start blinking , thought I was running out of fuel ( which was not the case ) but in any case I switched to Reserve . The light kept on blinking. Stopped the bike , tried to turn on again and nothing ! dead . Kick start works well. Once back home checked the battery and is giving on the voltmeter 12.6 V ? its a lithium and not very familiar with these type of batteries.... should they die in less than a year ? I ride the bike every weekend and long desert ride , which I believe is enough to charge it ... Now when I push the magic start button, I hear a sound coming from the battery, like a small click, and than that's it silence ! and the fuel light start blinking again. the battery is still giving 12.6 when I measure it ! Any Ideas ? Thanks and ride safe, Gaby

    Reviews on the Banshee 9-BS Battery

    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.
  23. 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!

    Ordered a MOTY Designs battery

    Does anyone know if this company is still in business? I ordered a 2x2 QD for my DRZ on the 2nd of Feb through PayPal and haven’t gotten anything except a PayPal receipt. No order confirmation or shipping info. I’ve called both numbers that I’ve found through the inter webs (714 area codes) and left them a message through their site but I haven’t been able to get through to them. I even was able to reach the former owner who said he would contact the current owner, but that number that he gave me was one that I had already contacted! He said that he receives calls about the company frequently. Has anyone has similar issues with them? It’s starting to bug me. I posted this in the supermoto section too, but no one seems to know.
  25. 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.
