Re: battery issues
Should I ad something to this thread.
In the first place 10.4V is not low on starting to me.
We don´t hear it won´t turn the engine?
As 14v+ is usual for the first few moments the it drops to 13,7V and at idle it apparently does not charge, it shows 12,7.
Last summer my ´96 Blade "melted" 3 accus after an "original" previously had done 10 years! as did the one from new also 10 years.
Though 2 were of this light weight type, the third an expensive said to be everlasting english thing.
The last one is maybe exchanged now as the dealer has send a message on mobile to come for it. Just haven't had the time to go get it.
But from the first failure I had learned to carry a trusted Varta accu under under the rear seat. Just in case.
And on the to top yoke/triple I´ve positioned a voltmeter.
Tiny little thing with double sided tape from the days i was in RC Bikes where we use 2 cell lipo accuse. There it monitor both cells.
Just short it the right way and it shows total voltage.
Now a days I use the thing that puts into the lighter in the car dashboard.
Use one in the car too so quite used to the showings of a voltmeter on the move.
Over the winter generator was proven melted too. Just like 10 years ago with the original accu defeat.
Have had a complete engine swop from a traffic crashed ´96 as no spares are available for a Honda more than 10 years old and in the first place the exchange was to cure a gear change problem I have had from new and drum and gear wheels are no longer available.
There are indeed more details to this story but I have probably to stop somewhere.
Wife yells at me its morning here rain is pouring down but I have the honour of getting morning bread for her coffee on my thread bike!
