Bought a Motobatt battery from Alco Batteries in December 2013. Went to start the Tiger 800 last week and no charge in the battery. I last rode the bike in mid November for a 560ks trip to Sydney and back. Trickle charged the battery overnight and the bike started next day. Rode the bike for 900 ks over the next three days, went to start it yesterday and the only thing I got was the clicking of the starter solenoid. Volt meter showed 13.5 volts after an hour's full charging (ie not trickle) but it wouldn't start the bike. Managed to get a Century Katana battery from Super Cheap (I think they might be a Yuasa battery) that almost fitted (it's a little tall so I had to put the seat on its higher setting), filled it with acid, charged it for an hour or so and it got me home. Checked the Motobatt site and they've only got a 12 month warranty. Bugger. Googled Motobatt and came up with some negative comments www.streetfighters.com.au/forum/showthread.php?26095-WARNING-Motobatt-batteries-are-SHIT http://cruiser.mototribe.com/discuss/motobatt-saga I'm off to Alco tomorrow to see what they're prepared to do. I won't be buying another Motbatt battery. I'll probably go back to Super Cheap and get the correct battery for my bike. The one I bought yesterday will go into the shed for use as a back up for the mower or the bike.
