Get you a battery for a cbr 1000. It has more cranking amps and its a gel battery.

It could also be because maybe it was cold. I know here it was 43 degrees yesterday, and I know mine will run weird until it is warmed up.

Also, try starting it here and there and let it run for 10 to 15 minutes, keep the battery charged that way. Or get a battery tender.

batteries will effect a efi bike quite a bit if the voltage drops below 11 volts the injector pulse signal will slow, the coil output will also be decreased. fuel pressure will drop. basically whats happening is a pretty lean condition results and low spark to ignite it. With the rectifier working correctly once its started it should provide almsot enough juice by itself its mainly getting it started you have to worry about. bigger battery is a good option once you start adding compression and cams that crank harder

XxX700XxX,
The absolute best thing you can do is, when the machine is not in use; (of course) keep it on a Battery Tender. My two machines are always ready to go. The 2005 Yamaha Grizzly has the original battery (April of next year is 6 years old, 5000 miles) and the Honda 700XX will be 4 years old in January.
