Re: Charging issue

The charging system as a whole will yes, it will take some time though. You're better off using a battery charger to get the battery at capacity. A 30 minutes ride won't charge the battery, nor will an hour it will be much longer than that.

Re: Charging issue

the rectifier in my bike was fried and stopped charging the battery.. i replaced it with an oem part and i jump started the bike using my friends bike because the battery was totally dead.. checked the volts on the battery and it was working correctly as mentioned in the manuals.. then went out for a 30 minute ride without stopping the bike and came home and turned off the bike and tried to restart again and it cranked slowly and then stopped and started to click.. again jump started using my friends bike and checked the charging system was perfect.. maybe 30 minutes ride is not enough to charge a complete dead battery i guess..

Re: Charging issue

30 minutes is nowhere close, it will take hours. Use a battery charger and charge the battery.

Re: Charging issue

Generally speaking from my experience, a battery that has gone flat from a failed charging component rarely survives that event. So, if you do end up putting a "full charge" on your battery, it still might not be able to deliver the voltage required to start the bike and/or will not be reliable.

Re: Charging issue

I agree with IanDoohan. Rarely do they survive. I have had a BatteryMinder bring some back to life but it's rare.

Re: Charging issue

I was thinking the same thing but if you charge it and it can't you know its bad but if it does and can start the bike, then it is good. Given that it could take a tank of fuel to charge the battery without shutting it off, you're better off charging it rather than having the bike do it unless the OP likes jump starting the bike to find out.

Thanks everyone.. I fully charged the battery and installed it on my bike and now it"s running perfect.... And one more question.. "Is it bad to install hid lights on a 400rr?.. Some say it will melt the rectifier & wirings.. I'm currently running hid bulbs and maybe that should've fried the rectifier.

Re: Charging issue

Is the wattage the same or less than the stock bulbs? If it is the same or less, then it can't melt the wiring. What you can run into with less wattage though; reduced R/R and stator life.
