I just bought a new battery because my original battery was only good for a singel start only if I rode it long enought ot charge it back up between starts. Anyways I went to cycle gear and the one that thespecs books call for was a yuwasa or something like that for $175, so needless to say I found the generic battery that looked identical. I hooked it up, and when I turn the bike on the battery saounds like it its ticking lick a clock about 2 clicks per second. put a volt meter on it and it was 12 volts with bike off, turn bike on dropped to 6volts and lights flickered. When I first hooked it u[ and tried to start it the starter relay clicked like a machine gun instead of 1 clikck and the starter engaging.

So i hooked up my oriuginal battery back up and it started fine, so it has to be the new battery, anybody heard of this before, I am excahnging it for another one, but was wanting to make sure that the 06 R6 doesnt require a particular battery

All my furse are fine
