I didn't get out yesterday. The Tuono's been on the tender for a week, tried to start it and the battery died, put it back on the tender and tried again later. it started but it was dark by then  thumbdown1z. I think the battery has had it, fuck knows how old it is.

My T tends to eat batteries. especially if it's been standing even when on a tender. I've taken to removing the battery when the bike is not in use and occasionally charging it.

10+ years o Tuono ownership an it always fires up no matter how long its sat.  My personal trick is to ensure its fully charged up on hibernation ( as in stick the charger on it for a while before chucking its blankie on).

Then do it once again mid winter.   Also fire it up at least once and leave it sat running for a spell tae get some circulation and heat thru everything and drive the damp oot. Then shut it doon and leave it tae springtime.  Seems tae work for me  happy88 ......an ahm nae a fan o these trickle charger Optimate jobs, ye hear too many stories o folk wi them on and still endin up wi duff batteries and bikes that winnae start.

Reckon yer batteries finally given up the ghost though min.

They do like a battery with a bit of cranking power don't they?
I put a bigger battery on mine, AGM jobbie, 14aH I think?
Would just fit in the battery box.
Big improvement, would spin the fucker over like a top.
Very risky trying to start with a shit battery, the rotax tends to try to kick back.
Will kill your spragg in a nannosecond.
Gen1's tend to have shit battery cables, which can't always cope with the current draw (cable gets warm, and leccy used robs starter motor of power) have a look at Johnnyboys cable upgrade on the AP site.

Like Summer here today, 17degC for a while, crazy for mid February. Took the missus over to The Steel Horse for a cuppa and it was stunning, warm and not a cloud on the sky. Only downside was the back roads were still covered in shite in the shadier areas, so had to wash the bike when we got back.

Like minds Tifa, I ordered the Johnnyboy cables yesterday along with a genuine 150amp starter thingy and one of those Li-ion batteries. The bike starts up now but the battery is definitely on its last legs. Stale petrol and 40,000 mile old spark plugs probably don't help  big grin1.

I did a 125 mile loop around the Peak District today, nice and dry up there but cold, the odd patch of rain on the way back home, like Giles said, plenty of mud and crud on the road.
Nice day out though, rinse and repeat tomorrow. big grin1
