2001 929 Dead Battery

Hey guys - ya I didnt really winterize the bike - only been in storage a 5 months - but the battery is completely dead. I have a few questions that will help me decide what to do in the next few hours.

1) What is the battery model and specs for this 2001 929?

2) I have a standard battery charger that I have used for my car - can I use this to charge my bike battery - and does it work the same way? - filling it up with water?

3) I was thinking about jumping my bike with a car - and riding it for 45 mins into town - I am guessing I still should yank it out after that and fully charge it right?

4) Can I even jump start a completely dead battery on my 2001 929? - i figured not.

Thank you everyone for your help!!!

Re: 2001 929 Dead Battery

1 - you should have a good Yuasa gel battery. You can look the part number up anywhere (or look on the battery you do have).

2 - Do not fill, do not top up, do not open and do not pass go. These batteries are sealed from the factory.
Don't use your car battery charger; get a cheap trickle charger from CrappyTrash.

3 - Works fine for starting the battery. Make sure the car isn't running when you do this.
You may not have enough battery power after this ride... I'd go with a cheap trickle charger.

4 - completely dead? You should be able to. One guy at work has been starting his bike from his truck's battery for the past month...

Re: 2001 929 Dead Battery

Happened to me several times. Not to worry. If you need to ride right away, jump it. Make sure you ride ABOVE 3000rpm as it won't charge just letting it idle!! Soo... they key problem is if you don't have gas to ride long enough to get a decent charge.

You can pop it out and recharge it at home later. If the battery was already hurting or has gone flat for too long, it may not keep a charge and you may be SOL.

Sorry to threadjack, but will the symptoms of a low/almost dead battery be that you can crank the motor, but wont fire up?

Re: 2001 929 Dead Battery

yeah happened to me recently. Its winter here now so the cold weather isnt doing the battery any help.

First symptoms I got was it wasnt starting straight away. Then you could tell there was not much power to get it cranked over. Then it just wouldnt even turn and made that fantastic Click Click Click noise. I ended up getting a push start, taking it home putting the battery on a charger and riding to a battery place the next day to get a new one.

From memory is was YTZ10S... something like that. Bloody expensive for something so little.

Its happened to me too. Most bikes ignition systems wont fire unless they have a certain amount of voltage in the battery while the bike is cranking something like 10.5 VDC.

Yeah it is the wonderfully expensive YTZ10S. Best price Ive found on the net is $56 over at bikebatts.com which isnt too bad in comparison to the $110 at the local dealer.

Re: 2001 929 Dead Battery

You can get a battery at Walmart to fit your 929,the one mine came with when i bought the bike.Drained it to damn near nothing a few times due to the stator,put new stator in and no probs at all....can't beat the price ,about $30 or so at walmart if i remember correctly,also you can pick up a charger for about $15 there
