    Battery going flat

    Hi Guy's just wondering if any one can help, I have got a problem with the battery going flat over about a week when I go to start it nothing but the lights are still nice and bright, but when I put the battery on charge for a while and she is ok. I have noticed that the alarm light flashes but stay's on faintly in between the flash and there is a noise from under the tank just like when you switch the ignition on. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks Huw

    Check the CCA (cold cranking amps) rating of your battery bud. It needs to be 200+

    Also part with some cash for a battery tender (not charger). Optimate being the best.

    Your current battery may seem good but these big v-twins need a lot of cranking over and if you keep trying with a low battery you will fry the sprag.
