battery 06 GSXR 1000

    battery 06 GSXR 1000

    The battery on the 1000 finally gave in. My issue is that I am going to BoMo TD on Monday and I need to get one asap.
    Pretty much something I can just throw on the bike and call it a day. Cheap and i dont care if I have to replace it in a year or two.
    Walmart?

    Thanks guys! i dont mind buying one I will need it anyways. My 1000 and my 600 fit the same battery so I usually share between the two.

    Re: battery 06 GSXR 1000

    I have a wally world one and its lasted 3yrs and is in my race bike.....Just grab the book and look it up. If you can hit one before monday that would be ideal and if you do get it just hold off on putting the juice in untill you can charge it like sunday night. If not I will be able to have time to grab mine and bring it with me....SUKKA

    Hey you can order a Yuasa from the dealer as long as you order it before 3pm. And you can get it tomorrow at the dealership. Don't go with a cheap battery.

    Can the Battery Tender Plus successfully perform the initial charge on a new, flooded, motorcycle battery?

    Background: The motorcycle dealers receive batteries from the manufacturer in a dry state. The plates are dried out, and there is no acid in the cell compartments. (Do not confuse this with a dry-cell battery.) The dealer must fill the individual battery cells with acid and then put them on a shop charger to pre-charge prior to selling them to a customer. As the batteries arrive from the manufacturer, the plates are approximately 80% "formed". The initial pre-charge, post-formation charge, or more correctly, formation-finishing charge, must be conducted at a specific power level and for a specific time period. Each manufacturer has its own recommendations, for example one manufacturer recommends that the charger deliver a constant current equal to 10% to 15% of the battery amp-hour capacity and that the charge current be applied to the battery for a period of 5 to 10 hours.

    Answer 1) Certainly if the dealer has properly pre-charged the battery after filling it with acid, then the answer is ABSOLUTELY YES.

    Answer 2) If the dealer has not properly pre-charged the
    newly filled battery prior to the sale, then the answer is YES, WITH SOME QUALIFICATIONS:

    Qualification A) The Battery Tender® Plus should be left on the new battery for a minimum of 24 hours on float, in addition to whatever amount of time it takes for the charger to get to the float stage. It is not clear how to correlate the 80% formed plates with a given state of charge once the cells are filled with acid. To be safe, assume that the batteries require a full 100% charge after the cells are filled.

    For example, a 16 Ah battery will take about 13 hours to get to the absorption voltage (constant 14.4 Volts). It may take another 6 to 8 hours to reach the float voltage (constant 13.2 Volts). This may sound awkward; because what happens is that the battery charge current drops while the absorption voltage is held constant. When the battery current drops to 0.1 amp, or if 6 to hours have elapsed at the absorption voltage, the charger automatically switches its output from 14.4 V to 13.2 V. So it may take the better part of 20 hours to reach the float stage. Add another 24 hours to that and you are at 44 hours. Throw in another 4 hours for good measure and you get a nice round, even 48 hours, or 2 days.

    Qualification B) Although there are probably several charging methods that will be equally effective, regardless of who manufactures the battery, in the interests of technical consistency, they will not officially sanction any initial charging method other than those published in their technical applications literature.

    Wal-Mart battery.

    It is dry, you add the acid and charge it.

    I've had great luck. They are in all but two of my bikes.

    I think but am not positive that the Yuasas you'd get from the dealership are sealed at the factory and the dealer doesn't add any acid to them. they're ready to charge right out of the box. they're expensive though.

    Re: battery 06 GSXR 1000

    I just bought a battery recently and the yuasa that they had at the dealership was not sealed. was still the acid bottles to add and it was almost a hundred bucks...i spent the extra coin and got a shorai lithium ion battery that weighs about 1/10th the weight of a standard and will last 5 times as long, was a hundred seventy bucks though. The li io batts are ready to go out of the box though, brought it home put it in and fired the bike right up.

    Everstart is the WalMart brand. Works fine for me.

    Just charge it per the instructions with the battery, usually 2 amps for 8 to 12 hours or so.

    If you do the math out, I'm sure that leaves enough time between now and Friday.

    not so.. .I've always filled them at the dealers I worked at. We tried to keep a few full and charged, but not always. We got em dry and filled them out back and put the cap on.

    They don't come sealed. The dealer seals them once they fill them.

    learn something new all the time. I've had ones where I've had to add the acid myself but didn't know the "sealed" ones are also that way.

    I called Moto Inter because I am going to need another battery as well. They said they have a few fully charged for $78.95.

    Apparently the 600 takes a 9 and the 1000 a 12. So I bought a 9 for 83$ total
