Dead battery at only 7k ?

Seems pretty short, could it be something else ? Going to go buy a ballistic battery, which size is best for a daily driver ?
Thanks in advance !

Re: Dead battery at only 7k ?

Could be, did you ever use a charger on it while it sat? Why get a high price lightweight battery for a commuter?

Re: Dead battery at only 7k ?

7k in how much years? Battery usualy lasts 3-4 years...

Do you have a battery tender? That helps a lot, I leave mine always plugged when I'm not riding.

(EDIT: I was going to talk about winterizing, but I saw Miami so... )

Current bike : Z1000
Shortened oem slip-on, K&N filter and PC3, rizoma levers, sprocket kit

Old bike : YZF-R6
MJS shorty slip-on, K&N filter

Re: Dead battery at only 7k ?

Ballistic's customer service blows fat donkey wang.. I will never buy something from them ever again.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE
