Hey . Yesterday whilst out for a spin , on My 88 R100GS bumble bee , i was proceeding along nicely ,,, my bike just stopped ,, i had all kinds of notions running thru my head as to what had happened . Initial thought was it had to be electrickery , because of the way it just Stopped motoring .. Having a look over the bike i couldnt see anything amiss ,,,,,, checked fuses , run my fingers along all the main leads outa the battery area , Nada . I called a friend with a van ,, had it vanned back to base . On inspection , there wasnt a kick outa the battery at all ,absolutely nothing. My Battery is about a year old , Motobatt , I have never heard of a battery " Just failing ". Digging out the Voltmeter , she is charging , nothing astounding , sitting about 13.5 ,but that is about it on a Std R100Gs. Have you ever heard of a battery "Just failing " ? What battery would you suggest as a good fitment ?
