    he's referring to the yet to be launched Honda 250R...

    since it's got C-ABS too... a problem like this is quite... well... probable.

Preferably leave early in the day when traffic is thin and return late evening or earliest in the afternoon (when traffic is again light).

    If the charging mechanism is not faulty your bike battery will retain the charge. From what i have understood the bike is ridden in the city most of the time and in stop-n-go traffic it will completely squeeze all the juice from the battery.

    Try the long ride suggestion and let us know.

    man i was saying in context regarding the ABS issue. your perspective on that is welcome, do share your knowledge on the same and if any experiences.

I have complained and 1st time in June the battery was changed as I was told its faulty, again it dint start in a monthís time the battery was changed again, then again. When it still gave trouble starting Then the rectifier was changed. Again last month it stopped starting and it was taken t he workshop where having checked I was told it will never give any more trouble as it has been thoroughly checked. Yet this Friday it dint start in the morning and I had to push start it, this is when I had checked it on Thursday night. this is the 7th time in 7 months of purchase its giving me this trouble. It stops anywhere and is completely unreliable. Iím totally fed up of the machine.
    1. you bought the bike in may.
    2. rode the entire of june.
    3. problems started in July.

    Now when you rode the bike in June before the problms raised their ugly head were you doing any sort of riding which was different to the riding that you are doing now or post July ?
    My guess is you are riding HEAVILY in traffic(You talk of a sabzi walla push starting the bike for you)
    Battery has been checked many a times and changed too as you have said it yourself. When nothing worked you guys changed the rectifier too. Yet your battery drains out. Following could be your options :

    1. Disconnect day running lights. Its just a small coupler you need to unplug to do this. If you ride in traffic this is a must. We ride in indian conditions so we are running on both fans to cool the bike down. That saps a lot of juice out the battery.
    2. After a push start, don ride the bike in traffic again. Remember you had to push start for your battery ran out of juice. You have to charge it up by ripping the bike on open roads. If you push start...ride in traffic...and then stop..you will not have helped the battery charging at all.
    3. If you are not riding in the city or in traffic and are charging your battery well by doing decent highway speeds and yet if your bike wont start or is plain unreliable then you got a problem with ABS leaking out your battery. Instances such as these are rare but not impossible. I however, heavily doubt that and am thinking that your usage is strictly traffic as whenever I rode in stop and go traffic and switched my bike off at signals I killed my battery successfully. I can kill the battery at will now by riding the bike in traffic.

    Good luck. I feel your frustration...but its imperative we try and zero in on the right set of reasons which are causing this problem before we think that ABS is leaking your battery. Try ONLY highway riding for a week. See if the battery behaviour changes in that week.

    well, i dont ride the bike in the city much, any run is a min of 100KMS and i take i out at least once a week. there is a drain problem with the bat! but the honda guys can’t find the leak.... this weekend i did a 700KMS run in 2 days but the bat is still low on Tuesday.... MY last Honda battery went strong for 2+ years, even with HID's. When i left her standing for 3 months it was a smooth start. honda india seems to feel a battery expires in 15 days...
    I would disconnect the lights, but i think its a wire leaking current somewhere or else the ABS (as you say) the point is that the bike is not supposed to demand unplugging of bulbs etc as the batteries are powered to take a load, they are going to check the bike again this week, i hope they can find the leak! or the issue whatever else it is.

    PS: if the ABS is at fault, what can / should be done to rectify it?

    Hi - go to Adventure Wheels : ATV - Quad bikes - Dirt bikes - Dune buggies

    Buy yourself a Deltran Battery Tender Plus

    Get the Battery Tender 800.

    Charges your battery and trickle charges to maintain it in peak condition. Highly recommend this product to anyone facing these battery issues. Just come home and plug it in. I know it isn't the most elegant solution but it will keep your battery happy, your bike happy and therefore...keep you happy.

    I use this whenever I park the bike for an extended period of time. Right now it is busy charging the battery on my uncle's boat.

    Put the ABS system on e-bay

    i dont know how easy or difficult is to swap batteries on your bike, but if its easy, get another battery / buy a professional battery charger ( around Rs 3000/-) swap the batteries . it seems that there is no magic solution for your problem from honda and in fact they have goofed up in judging the indian riding conditions in relation to the bike design.

    Can the ABS sensor be disabled or something ? Agreed ABS is required but people were still riding without ABS at tripple digits.

    Atleast this will help to confirm if it really is the ABS which is causing that problem.

    and dying by the plenty at those tripple digit speeds.
    Pub lore sux !

    @Ambsace
    it looks like you fell victim to a faulty battery ( but u have changed it already) so maybe to a faulty something (maybe ABS is leaking out the battery, maybe the wirring harness has a kurzschluss :S)
    I dont know what I would do if I were in your shoes. I would be mighty pissed for sure. Badger/spam HMSI with complaints and if nothing works try approaching Japan.
    Whatever you do please keep us all updated. There could be someone else in the future who could suffer the same problem

    The bike seems to be well within warranty period. Get it fixed asap. Or else you'll have a troublesome period before you get it fixed by doing a routine check by changing battery, rectifier, etc. A guy down here in my city had the same problems but it was a 954rr. But we couldn't figure out the problem after getting the battery changed or by changing the rectifier. He even had his injectors, plugs and all checked and also all the sensors. Very hard to figure out the problem if it is with the electrical's. If HMSI doesn't respond in a concerned manner (I'm not very sure), mail the top man in charge at HMSI. Send a mail with strong concerned statements and see what happens. One of my friends here (ZeNashB on Xbhp) had issues with the R15 and when the local dealer refused to cooperate in a concerned manner, he sent a mail to the main office in Mumbai or someplace and the day after the guys at the dealer welcomed him and had his bike fixed the same day working on his bike most of the day.

    Riding is a way of life. Sometimes, it might also be a way of giving life. So Ride safe. In both contexts.

    very few ride this bike in stop and go traffic daily/frequently. most ride on highways in light traffic. the total electric watts required by all the the bike electronics and lights etc should be compensated by the charger by generating sufficient voltage even if the bike is running idle. in this case the battery will keep the charge. else the chances of drained battery results.

    next part is an ill charged battery will die much faster that a properly charged battery, which means you will have to replace the battery double quick compared to another bike.

    any electrical guys on in this forum can do some calculation and check this out. for me its absolute scary to think of spending 14 lakhs and the bike tells me what to do and how to to ride it so that the battery remains charged.

    i hope yours is a genuine problem which HMSI locates and rectifies once and for all.
