Battery disconnection anything to look out for.
« on: October 05, 2014, 09:58:43 pm »
I am the kind of person who uses " if its working don't mess with it" however just recently there have been a lot of thread reference low voltages and then with Cropbikers recent problem.

My question if you have to disconnect the battery for any reason. Does this affect any of the programmes and does it have to be reset with the dealer tool or by the dealer.?

I don't mind small electrical jobs but not that experienced in major electrics. More understanding of mechanics. I do have a good dealer but also like to know my own bike for on the road fixes.

All comments welcome

Seadog,
Just be sure your ignition key is turned off when disconnecting or connecting the battery.  After reconnecting the battery, you may have to reset certain parameters on your trip computer display and suspension adjustment profiles, but nothing requiring the dealer scan tool or Dealer Tool as far as I have experienced.

The only things I recall that changed was the fuel gauge and cruise control. No change with radio memory or anything else. My TTSE battery was removed for two days.

When reconnected . . .

Fuel gauge  said empty with a full tank until I rode the bike a few miles and then it was back to normal.

Cruise control (which I rarely use) seemed to vary speed going up and down hills a lot more than usual. Big hills on hwy 395 between my two Reno homes which made the change obvious.  After a few more miles and the next day, the cruise control was back to normal on these same hills--then very steady.

When reconnecting the battery, also make certain that the battery terminal bolt is tightened down very securely. I experienced some electrical issues with the radio after one of the service mechanics apparently didn't do that, even though the engine still started right up and everything else was fine.

with the weather we are now getting sea-legs might be better?  Ok not too bad but after September it is a shock.

I just installed a Battery Tender connector to the battery terminals and noticed the clock needs to be reset but haven't noticed any other issues.
