|31.JANUARY.2017 - TRANSPORTATION TUESDAY |
I.AM extremely frustrated again because I am back to my original problem: Hit the STARTER button and all I get is a "Click-click"
New battery bought in May/June 2016...never really used...removed from bike in Aug/Sep, 2016...Put battery on tender early Jan.2017...
Put battery back in bike on Saturday...turned engine over about three times then... "Click-click ... click-click ... click-click"
Reconnected battery to tender...in bike...yesterday (Mon.1/30 @ 15:00) ... didn't get a green (fully-charged) light until 09:00 this morning (Tues.1/31)
So...I am about to go out and try to start her again...but I wanted to post this so I could get your input and thoughts about this problem...
Are MC Batteries really this poor in quality? I've had this bike since 2014 and have had to buy 4-5 batteries...I also have this battery problem with my 1984 Honda Nighthawk which has a known factory defect that doesn't charge a bike...but I really thought I would get a longer shelf life out a 2007 Kawasaki Ninja Battery.
Perhaps I should consider investing in a Lithium Battery? Thoughts? Opinions? Suggestions? Anything will help...I am sure.
Thanks in advance.

So!!!...it took me FIVE MONTHS but I finally drained the oil (it DOES smell like gas) and turned the crankshaft counter-clockwise as instructed (it TURNED)...it was hard and a little tight but it did turn about three times after applying a little elbow grease!!!
So I am assuming that this means my engine is NOT SIEZED (thank the Ninja250 gods)...Now, I am going to refill the oil, install the battery (FULLY CHARGED-it's been on a tender the last two weeks) and see if I can get it started...
Is it okay to do that since I've done and checked everything else posted?
OH! Wait...someone said something about spark plugs and the carbs...do I still need to check those also?
I guess I should mention that I had had a minor accident in which I laid down the bike on its left side (I say this because I am again assuming that that is how gas got mixed into the oil)...SO...do I still need to check the spark plugs and carbs before attempting to start it???
After a 1 year and a half of no motorcycle, I am a little anxious to get it started and ride again...
