Yeah I'm a victim of the dreaded lifeless battery syndrome on my 06 640 adv as well.good thread as I only wasted about 20-30 kicks before checking out this thread and sure enough won't start with a DEAD battery evidently.Considering where ive been with this bike it is definately a concern that I thought did'nt exist.I always assumed(I know) that if the battery died I could just kick the beast to start(wrong) So a couple of questions.
Will the 640adv start with dead battery on the bump,seems not?
Reccomendations on good replacement battery for my stocker,seems like shes near the end?
On the 06 640 adv one click after lock on ignition will be able to fire up without lights going on?Fact or?That would be cool,just can't check at the moment charging time.Update Yep thats a fact it works!checked out fired right up!
Thanks for the info on this thread saved my leg alot of kicking for nuthing!
