    2016 K1300S Battery Suggestion

    Looking for a suggestion on a replacement battery for the original in my 2016 K1300S Motorsport. Not sure it’s the issue, but starting there using the KISS rule. My bike acts like it has the hot-start issue with a no-start/dead-battery behavior when restarting hot. Let it sit for a bit and it fires right up. Battery load and voltage checks fine. You should know that it’s got a few farkles like a Sargent heated seat (rarely on), Navigator V, Australian cruise control, etc. I use the cruise often and usually run with the high-beam on. Lithium Ion? Higher aH/CCA rating than the current original 12aH/200 CCA? Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Have you done the heavier wire harness update for the hot start problem?

    Thanks Lee - appreciate it and had heard of this fix but thought the newer K1300s got this from the factory - at least I thought I read it somewhere else. Will do some more research!

    For those trying to find the service bulletin that addresses the hot start issue on K-bikes, go here: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/20...47121-9999.pdf

    It’s well hidden and not easy to find, so hopefully I’ve saved you a step or two.
