  1. hi

    ive got a bit of a problem with my k2 gsxr 600. i put a new battrey in the other day but after about 40 ks of riding it went flat. i dont beleive its charging.

    what could be the issue and how do i fix it?? im guessing the alternator isnt working ...

    any advice would be greatly helpful

  2. Check all the terminals are tight and there's nothing obviously wrong.

    e.g. A loose wire will cause running problems even though the lights/horn may still work. Check the battery fluid level etc.

    Then start the bike and put a volt meter across the battery. Rev the engine and check you have around 13 - 14V.
