More Husky Problems - Staring/Battery life

My husqvarna SM610S 2005 will not start within a few tries and then the battery flattens. It takes approx 4 times to start and then seems to run fine but a few hours later I try again and the battery dies. please help. Do I need a new battery because it seems to be doing the job it's just flattening because the bike doesn't start straight away. My friend has a supermoto KTM and his always starts after a two tries on the electric start. Why is mine taking four-five times?

I'm having to charge the battery off a van to try again each day. I think the battery charger (alternator) is working as it will start ok after a good run. Could it be that the alarm system is draining the battery? It's always after a few hours of leaving it off that I have problems starting it.:huh: Confused and annoyed!

Hi Biker Xtina

Sounds like your battery isn't holding its charge?try taking the battery to a shop that can test it for its Amp's and if its losing its charge.It could be showing 12.5-8 volts all the time but may not be holding a Amp charge(power)If your battery is showing less than 12.5volts its below Parr anyway.There could be a an electrical drain somewhere as well,that will need investigating by a motorcycle tech,if its not a battery problem unless you can do the investigation work yourself . Good Luck.
