Re: Battery

Whatever the specs are for the stock battery. The amp output is limited by the stator, not the battery. The battery starts the bike, the stator provides the running amps.

How do i find the specs for a stock battery? Also the oem stator should be able to produce enough amps to keep my mods running without draining the battery right?

Re: Battery

Most places online will show you what battery you need if you plug in your bike. So far as the stator, you will need to look up the output in watts. Add up the watts used by the bike and subtract it from the output. That's what you have left over for your gadgets.

Re: Battery

What Evil said...haha, he beat me while I was typing

The manual specs are GT12B-4 12 V/10 AH. (FYI, you can download the service manual from r6messagenet).

The stator output on these bikes is pretty minimal, but that being said others have run heated grips on their R6. That is your only mod drawing any power. I'm sure a forum search might dig up some threads discussing others who have installed heated grips. But the output on these stators is about 300 watts.

Yeah cause i have a problem where my bike runs out of power every damn time i ride, and i swapped the stator, the regulator and the battery (to a 12v 7ah) and i had a mechanic confirm the charging voltage is within specs, about 14,5v, any ideas? It even runs out of power without lights/grips turned on. And i figured that if any of the wires are bad, the output power from the stator shouldnt reach the battery at all, any ideas? Fyi the battery does not drain while bike is off so parasitic drain is ruled out, or so i think
