AT battery replacement - Turns out to be the Kill switch
« on: September 11, 2019, 10:02:32 am »
My AT (2016 model) is battling to start sometimes after standing for a week or 2 (engine swings over just fine for a long time), suspect it is the battery, starts first time after been on charge.

Who has replaced their battery recently? Price and what did you choose

check tracmac. You can select you bike and the right battery will pop up. Best price as well.


I will actually be buying a battery now as well, just cant decide which make

The newer models have lithium batteries.

Can the CRF1000L 2016-2018 model accept lithium without modification?

After looking on a AT forum I have worked out what starting the problem is. Its the Start/Kill switch that is faulty, not the battery. A common problem on this bike. After flicking the switch on and off many times, problem solved (for now). Guess i should replace it.

You can also open it up and spray with electronic contact cleaner. Then silicone it closed again as best you can.
