Li-ion battery & charge voltage

I got a super light Li-ion battery and put it in my 05 FS650. It worked great for 1 ride and died. Has anyone used one in a 'berg? I suspect the charging system may have exceeded the 14.4 volt max for this type of battery. Does this model have a voltage regulator, cause I don't see one in the parts list.

The "e" model with lights has one, but the "c" doesn't.

Re: Li-ion battery & charge voltage

Can someone post the charging voltage range. I'm at 14.6 with the lights off. Too high?

Re: Li-ion battery & charge voltage

14,6v sound about right for standard charging volts.
but, if you new battery can handle it i dont know.

Re: Li-ion battery & charge voltage

I think any bike with electrics such as lights, &/or a battery, has to have a voltage regulator. I'd be shocked if it didn't, but then, I don't know everything.

Re: Li-ion battery & charge voltage

I have disassembled a battery for a lawn mower. It had 3,95V LiOn cells (all does, I think). With the cells I put together a 15,85V batttery pack for my Supermono. I supply the power consumers on the bike through a adjustable rectifier (adjusted to 16V). But I'm also interested to know more about how charging in the workshop should be done . I'm sure "Swedish Steel" here at UHE could enlighten us!

I can tell you I purchased this battery from www.ballisticracingparts.com through a local dealer.
Li-ion batteries for bikes have good racing potential due to weight savings up to 10lbs. I am finding they have drawbacks for street use such as poor cold weather performance and they are expensive.

I put one in my 07 550 and it doesn't work at all, going back to lead acid I think.
