    So I decided I better charge the Shorai in my 950 to balance everything out for new riding season. Had the Shorai charger on my 650l and 450 EXC, no problem. Hook it up to 950 battery and beeps a bunch and then flashes code that says voltage problem in battery (4 flashes, then repeats). Battery still spins over fine, I rode some past wknd with it. Tried charger on other batteries again and works fine. Any advice?

    You might need to drain the battery down a bit to allow the circuitry to get a load on it.. Not dead or anything just run the headlight for a few minutes, till the battery drops voltage maybe 1/2 a volt then put the charger on..

    Cheers
