Stupid question about smaller battery.

Postby nicogri » Fri Feb 16, 2018 11:25 pm

Hi guys,

A quick and maybe silly question...

I have a ride tomorrow and I checked the superduke too late.

Battery is dead and won't charge, not enough power to cranck the engine.

And can't buy replacement during night ^^

I have a small 125cc (kymco stryker) with 2 batteries.

It's ytz7something with 6Ah

On SD it is Ytz14s with 12Ah

Polarity match.

So will the bike start with half battery and is it safe for electronic, alternator and battery itself.

It's only for tomorrow morning and after that I buy new battery.

Thanks guys (in case the 6ah is charging on ctek for the night)

one reason why the Superduke battery life is short is the power required to spin the engine, it needs a lot of cranking power. you need a minimum 220CCA. What is the CCA on your tiddler? Even if you do get started,

Do you have a hill nearby? If you time it right the jump start with starter button should work even with the small battery... Good luck!
don't buy a 701 when you want a 1290

Are these bikes easy to push start? My Triple refuses to push start but the little Monster is easy.

Tried the small battery but it didn't even tried to launch.

Bike is in my underground so can not push it outside... I need to order new one and wait to move the bike ^^

size not important :D power is.

push start = on your own, forget it.
