Fascinating! Generation 1s have 14 amp-hour batteries; Generation 3s have 8 amp-hour batteries. Quite puzzling, because Generation 1s use no battery power for ignition, unlike the latter-day (Generation 2s, and, I presume, Generation 3s) electrical configurations.But it Shrunk! The FTZ9 is to be tested as an 8 amp hour battery!
I thought PlayDoh has a Generation 3 (2022) model KLR; I thought you said these motorcycles have AGM batteries (no cells to fill, right?).I personally feel that PlayDoh's dealership OWES him a brand new battery that has been filled & allowed to absorb the acid into its plates for 1 hour & then Charged on an old fashioned 1 amp charger for about 8 hours or until 15+ volts is confirmed while still on the charger. Allowed to rest/stabilize for 1 hour & confirm voltage is still above 12.8 volts.
