    question about battery ect ect on cb1000r best place for a battery/charger.

    not ridden my cb1000r for 2months. went to start it up batt is dead. i lent a mates charger and it charged it and it fired up. next morning dead again

    so where is the best place to get a new batt from? also a good batt charger that i can have on trickle charge throughout the crappy weather so it doesn't mess up the new batt.

    thanks guys.

    The standard battery is fine when trickle charged but is expensive from Honda! On eBay batteries start from £25. The only new battery I've ever bought was a yusa. (Think that's right???)

    If your going to keep the battery on a trickle charger in the future a cheap battery will do the job.

    I bought a second hand Aprilia RSVR a few years ago, and that had a cheap battery on it. No problems what so ever with the charger on it all the time it was in the garage.

    I should imagine if it was neglected for any period of time it would quickly die, where as a quality battery would probably take more mistreatment.

    The charger I have is a Optimate. Had it for over 10 years. Still works perfectly.

    Good luck.

    Here is my thread on a new battery $150US + Postage and loose 2.4kg

    Hi Guys,

    So as the title states loose 2.4kg by simply changing your battery from the OEM fat 3kg 12v Battery to a 8 cell LiFePo4 battery

    Some of you maybe scared of something new and i can verify 2 things

    1) the seller MOTY Design - 8 cell battery QD is reputable, he has been selling these for years now, i got one of the first ones he designed over 2 years back

    2) the battery is fantastic, i have been using it for 2 years on my CBR600RR. Never missed a beat and i ride my bike every cold, rain, hail and or shine day.
