replacing battery
« on: September 06, 2019, 01:36:11 PM »
I have a street triple 675,  2015 model. I had to take the battery off last week as it was flat after not being ridden for a few weeks due to me having an operation. Anyway after putting the battery back on I have now noticed that the engine management light is on. What have I done? Will it reset itself? Will I have to pay ridiculous amounts to have it plugged in at the shop? The bike starts and runs as it should. Any help would be appreciated. :029:

The EML will go off after 3 heat cycles if the fault has cleared. Ride and chill.

However batteries hate going flat.  Don't be surprised if it starts to give issues in a while.  If it turns over slower or dash fades  while cranking I'd replace sooner than later.

That said the wife left her car lights on and ran battery into the ground flat.  That was a year ago and its starting fine.  Good luck.

I've found that they usually fail during cold weather after being flattened at some time earlier.

Thanks so much guys for your help. I've been out and done a few miles and the eml has gone out now. I was worried until I spoke to you guys. :037:

Hi, apologies for hijacking the thread but I'm having a similar issue with a STR 13MY

Been out for a blast as you do, filled up at garage, battery decided it's dead resulting in a bump start. I've now got a permanent eml (only since bumping) on even after riding back home about 30miles, no issues.

Once I've replaced the battery, can I expect the eml to sort itself out after a good run out?

Thanks in advance
Simon

It should disappear after three heat cycles I.e engine getting up to temperature.
