Re: lithiuum battery dead no kickstarter now what?

Sorry to hear of your battery and start problems. I use lithium batteries on several bikes including my FE390 and in general you want to charge them at low rates, usually no more than 1.5 amps on a standard trickle charger like a Deltran Battery Tender Junior.

or Battery Tender Plus



Shorai for example says the two chargers above are safe for their Lithium batteries and will not overcharge them even if you leave them on a long time. Lot of myths running around about Li batts. Mostly you do not want to use a battery charger more than 1.5amps and make sure it does not have a "desulphate cycle", that will damage a Li batt. Once a Lithium battery is up to full charge, it's best to take them off a trickle charger since Li batts will hold their charge much longer in storage than lead/acid batts will.

Also Lithium batteries, like standard (not Deep Cycle) Lead/Acid batteries, can be partially or permanently damaged if drained too low.

Re: lithiuum battery dead no kickstarter now what?

thx for the info I need a 2pin charger though (europe) and couldn't find these chagrers in euro version
I think my lithium battery will be damaged I just bought the damn thing one month ago
I'l never go to carwash again will take my bike to a dealer by the end of the week because the battery is not the only problem otherwise it would keep running...

Re: lithiuum battery dead no kickstarter now what?

It is not unnormal if one electric component breaks down that it takes down another electric component as well, like rectifier/regulator.

Here is a pointer to more info on troubleshooting the thing: http://www.wemoto.com/info/regulator_rectifier/

That's why I got a Good Ol' Taffy MF battery.
It can handle my Optimate 3 for weeks,when I am on holidays.
Hope you get your bike fixed soon.
