Hi all.

First startup of the season today, but only lit up the two front cylinders, occationally sputtering and trying to fire the two rear @ 3-4k rpm, but no. Has been at a standstill since last September. No PGM warning or anything else "funny". Newly fully charged battery. I have no idea of the status of the sparkplugs on this bike, so the plan is to change them now anyway. Anything else to check?

Cheers

7 months is not sufficient storage time to affect spark plugs nor will gas
go from good to bad within that time... however batteries will grow weak
with in 7th months... I've seen rodents chew wires with in 3 months storage...

So I would eliminate the battery for it's the weakest link in the whole
system... To determine the condition of an Maintenance Free battery give
it a refreshing charge... wait 30 minutes... measure terminal voltage...

12.8 or higher is a good battery...
12.0 to 12.8 is a insufficient charge... recharge...
12.0 or lower... battery unserviceable...

Lithium
batteries require a different routine than lead acid... understanding the
chargers operation is key to success...

At the end of your ride connect the Shoria charger... Push don't hold
buttons... push either STORE or CHARGE button once and wake up
confirmation is signaled by 1 beep... either push button STORE or
CHARGE once and activation is signaled by 3 beeps... Selecting CHARGE
will bring the battery to 14.4V... but if your bikes charging system
raised the battery higher than 14.4V nothing will happen... CHARGE
mode does not maintain 14.4V... Leavening the battery on CHARGE will
lead to discharge... Select STORE mode and the charger will
maintain/float the battery at approximately 13.3V... that means no
charge begins until volts drop from the high of 14.4V down to 13.3
V... Your battery will rest on STORE mode for as long as power is
supplied to the charger...

But when you are ready to ride push CHARGE to cancel the STORE mode.
Press the CHARGE button momentarily and listen for the triple beep. The
Green light will then begin to flash. It may take up to 30 minutes for the
battery to reach full capacity, approximately 14.4V. It will change to a
solid green once it reaches full capacity... now you're ready to start your
ride with a 100% full capacity batt... if you begin your ride off STORE
mode the battery is only at 13.3V which is 90% capacity...

14.340 100%
13.300 90%
13.270 80%
13.160 70%
13.130 60%
13.116 50%
13.104 40%
12.996 30%
12.866 20%
12.730 10%
9.200 0%

Spot on... It was 12,3V. New recharge to 13,81 and it was happy straight away. The 45`s are picky when it comes to the battery I understand..

The RC45 is in the digital age wheres the RC30 is analog... fuel delivery and
spark timing and instruments and everything operates within millionths
of a volt (milli-volts) and for some reason a component doesn't receive its
allotted share of volts the system starts to prioritized which components are
powered and which components are cut so you can ultimately return home...
