  • 2000 xv1600 battery keeps dying

    if its not one thing its another. I just put a new starter relay solenoid and had a transmission rebuild and clean done. just got it back and rode the hell out of it. Went down to the bike and it was dead. Had it jumped and started right up, charging system did its job while riding for about an hour or so. Park the bike and go back maybe 18hrs later and the battery is dead again. Thanks for the help

    Battery drain or the battery itself is done. Check for a drain. No more than 30mA.

      Need a multi meter. Then you’ll be able to trouble shoot the charging system.
      Have the battery load tested. Even if it’s fairly new.

      The link is kind of dated, but for what it’s worth.

        Check for charging at the battery while running. Like Ron said, load test the battery.

        If you hit a bump really hard can mess up a battery. That happened to me. Battery less then a year old would show 12.8v but no amps.
        Is the word PICTURE a picture?

          If you got a battery make sure you get a good one AGM sealed is my preference. I would follow the wire along the frame and see where and maybe lose out of connector or frayed where it goes through a housing or something and there's a ton of wiring inside the headlight you want to open that up make sure you don't have mice in there some kind of s*** like that. I make sure where the wiring harnesses rubs on the steering head that the it's not worn through the insulation. Also check where the throttle cables go past the coil the insulation can rub off and ground out. There's two wires on the bottom of a carburetor make sure they're hooked up. You could have a wiring harness problem or a control switch problem.
