Fitted new battery
« on: 24 October, 2018, 09:50:47 PM »
Hi all, just fitted a new battery and now the bike won't start. Turns over ok. Was wondering is some process to do after fitting a new battery.
Many Thanks

I changed mine recently, straight swap, no special procedure to do after wards.

have you flooded it ?

check your manual for that procedure

Don't draw your new batt empty!!
Use starter cables if it needs more umph to get the bike going.
Maybe you knew.
Hope you get it fixed.

The new battery may not have enough uuumph to start the bike. I suggest charging it up for 24 hours, or as others have said, jump start the bike.

I bought a new battery in July and had the same issue. I wasn't happy with it, even after charging it, so I took it back and the replacement was much better.

Hi all. but back in the old yusa battery after a charge and the bike started. ordered a battery from Honda it was the same as fitted and the bike started. Must be something to do with the spurious battery
