Got an 08' zx10 with starrotors HIDs and my battery died. Had the bike 6 months I use it regularly. The negative terminal is burnt is this a problem caused by the HIDs or does it sound like a bad stator. Either way I'm taking it in to get checked
Use a multi meter to check to see if your charge goes up or down when you start the bike (after recharging the battery to get it to start of course). Most HID kits actually draw less power after they ignite. That said I have HIDs, a GiPro, and PC III and I blew my stator in 9k miles.
So I got my bike back from the the dealership and they told me that the charging system and all the electrical connections were fine on my bike. That it was the HIDs that caused my battery to die out. Again I have the Starrotors kit on for about 4 months and I really dont wanna put the stock headlights back on. Anyone have any suggestions
Most shops are gonna look at any aftermarket stuff as the cause of the problem..
Ive had hids(A&R and now SR) for a few years now along with PCIII,Gipro,alarm,Speedo Corerector,Halos. Still have original battery from 06..
But just in case it is those remove them and see what happens... The star rotors kit i have actually just connect to the existing wiring harness, were as the A&R kit went directly to the battery. Also HIDS draw more power on start up then reg bulbs,but after there on they will draw less.
