« on: June 20, 2015, 11:41:33 am »

Have you had the Audio Software Update ?

This ( accordng to the reports from Members of this Forum )
is the Number 2 reason for Low Voltage Flat Battery issues.

This has been discussed extensively in variious Topics -

If you want more information on this just use the Search Button and search for "Audio Update"

Coconut, what is the number one reason if you don't mind me asking, cause I have had the update (May this year) due to dead battery.   Now I am getting the "low voltage" thing again.   First noticed it this past Saturday.

I find if I turn the trophy on, let the TES settle and then put my gloves on etc then I often get low voltage and radio off but it starts just fine and the low voltage goes away and the radio comes back on.  I think it is probably not just where the limit is set but also perhpas where the voltage is measured.  The 955 tiger and the 1050 sprint use quite thin wires to the front and drop by a good half to 1 volt if measured at the front. 

If I do it wrong and press the starter as soon as I turn it on (after dials reset) then I do not get the low voltage but sometimes get TES failure message?

I think the number one reason (well one of the reasons especially outside US) is that the bolts on the battery are not always tight.  I see one member has said the bolts are too long so when 'tight' they do not trap the wire properly.

Thanks for the reply john348 I have checked the battery connections but didn't know that was the number 1 reason.   I thought maybe it was another electronic issue.  Thanks again.

I frequently get the low voltage message and it starts with no problem.  I did have a battery quit on me, but didn't get the low voltage message when that happened!

Sometimes I hit the starter button and it starts to turn over then stops.  It always starts the second time I push the button though.  First few times it happened it worried me, but now its just a quirk of the bike.
