Electrical/batter problem in a 2000?
I recently, very dumbly left the key in the on position on my bike and drained the battery. When I tried hooking the battery to a charger it would just click the charger off and not take any power. Tried this directly to the battery as well as with the battery attachment that was on the side of the bike. Also tried it with multiple chargers and got the same effect.
When I removed the battery from the bike it started taking a charge just fine, and got it up to 10v before I stopped. When I tried the battery back in the bike I don't get any power. None of the lights come on (not even the dash lights) and the fuel pump doesn't prime. The dealer suggested that the battery didn't have enough juice to start up the bike, but I figured a better than 75% charge would be enough. Am charging the battery up to full right now and will try it again.
Has anyone else had similar problems with a 2000 K1200RS?
