Battery under load
I drained my battery down to zero for the second time this year....yeah yeah I know i'm a dumbass. I put it on the trickle charger both times, the second time, after charging overnight I thought I was in the clear (12.5 volts). I tried to start it and ther was a 1 second pause and then it turned over. After a few longer rides the pause is more pronounced and it's barely turning it over. I did a meter reading when I got home and it is 12.5 when no load, I turn the ignition on and it goes down to 11.5 and then when I try to start ithe bike it drops down to 6.6 for a split second. Everything I could find out about batteries tells me that it shouldn't drop below 9.9 when tryng to start the bike. Has any checked their battery while trying to start it and the big question.....is my battery pooched?
