Battery life
« on: June 20, 2016, 11:20:42 AM »
How long do you guys find is the is the usual life of a bike battery? Mine is 8 years old

Bike has been parked up for three weeks and she was dead.

I have an aux socket for the heated jacket direct onto the batt that I am going to disconect when not in use so just hope it is that. Its only a small jack plug so perhaps a bit dirt just shorting out.

A buddy has just had to replace his 7yr old battery.

Update

Disconected everything, left parked for two weeks and struggled to start, checked voltage at battery with bike running getting 13v so think it is time to replace the battery.

Looking at this as a repacement.Varro replacement battery from "Motorcycle products"

Anyone had experiance of either this type of battery or this seller?
