My CB750 Nighthawk has been sitting for way too long now. We even had a couple of 40° F days lately and I couldn’t stand it anymore. I need to get on two wheels sometime this week, period! Watch my update here:
I knew that even after sitting on the tender for a while, it would give me the same problem that it had before. The motorcycle would just click and die when I hit the start button. Fuses were good, everything was fine but the battery.
So I pulled my battery and decided to take a look at it. Turns out it was completely dry. I’m not sure how this happened because with my other batteries they didn’t need maintained but once every 6 months or so. Regardless, that’s the situation now.
What I did was use some distilled water, a disassembled inkpen, and a shotglass to carefully fill the battery to where it is. I haven’t been able to find my battery tester since I moved, so I’m just going to have to guess after it sits on the tender for a while. If I can’t start it tonight with the topped-off battery, I’ll take it in for testing at AutoZone or something tomorrow.
