How to Diagnose Battery problems in Bike?
It feels so aggravating seeing your bike battery losing charge, as we have discussed a number of reasons. One should be careful with the discharge problem. There isn’t one single and obvious thing that might drain the bike battery. There could be a number of reasons such as having a poor battery terminal. The terminal is the positive and negative electrode of your battery that supplies charge to the bike and receives a charge. The poor terminal condition can occur due to losing connection to the terminal or poor cable condition. As a result, your battery doesn’t get charged due to the fact that rust of corrosion offers high resistance to charging current.
Even after check rusted terminals for the battery and lose connections, check for the stator as if the stator may fail to supply sufficient charging current. The stator can also suffer from a number of causes and each tiny factor can cause the battery to discharge. The bike battery is charged when the bike is started and running, if the battery fails to charge there is no backup source to charger the battery. To charge the battery, either you take off the battery and stick it with a charger or get the stator replaced.
Lead-acid batteries were popular initially due to the depth of discharge and similar factors. However, late the bike battery begins to encounter issues and battery performance reduced to nearly 0. The cause of low power to the battery was due to the fact that electrolyte spillage reduced battery capacity. You can also get the battery alive back by jump starting or manually rolling the bike to get the engine crank for combustion. Therefore, taking a little precaution can save you a lot of time and money.
