I went on a cruise up to Avilla to look at boat today and on the way back I pulled off at the gas station
to take off my jacket. When I shut off bike and tried to start it back up,it had absolutely no power.
I checked over everything and couldn't figure out why it just quit. I'm about to call it a lousy day when I
remembered the service dept. around the corner and down the hill 1 block. So I start pushing towards the
shop. Just my luck it died so close and didn't have to call a tow. The guys have me roll it in and check out the battery only to find out it's
toast. They put a new one on the charger for a half hour to top off the charge and 100 bucks later I'm back on the road again.
I didn't have a clue the battery would up and die so quick. Seem to be just fine since I bought the bike back in Jan. when I saw it had the battery tender plug hooked up on it. I even spent the extra money for the dealer battery tender to keep it good.

So what are the odds the bike would die and be 1 block from the shop and back riding for the weekend?

I'll just say the odds are slim, because any figure I'd give would would just be a guess. I know you know how lucky you were,you said so above, but I still have to say you were real lucky.
How old was your  battery? It seems like the newer batteries don't give you much warning when they are ready to die, maybe the starter turns a little slower but you don't notice that until you put a new battery in.
Did you check your voltage with the ignition off, with ignition on and scooter running at idle, and with the scooter running at up to 5,000 RPMs? You should have around 12.50v with the ignition off and at idle around 13v. With the scooter running at 5,000 RPMs you should/may get 14.5, it should not go 15v or over. You don't want to fry a new battery with a bad regulator/rectifier or a bad stator/alternator.

IDK

There was a sticker on it that said used.

Yes.



Stator is still good at 10,550 miles.


Thanks,

Ill take this as fair warning. I think my battery is weak, Original in a 2011. In for 4000 mile service in a week, the battery will be replaced. Scooters are a lot more fun when ridden opposed to being pushed especially after receiving a sound warning!
