Yes.

But it doesn't really matter if "it makes sense" or not......if it really was the cause and replacing it fixes the problem.

With almost ALL modern computer controlled engines, a weak 12 V battery can cause all kinds of operating problems, along with mis-leading error indications and codes.

Similar things can happen with loose or corroded battery connections.

P.S. That is also why any competent shop will test the 12 V battery on almost ANY shop visit.
The exception might be an obvious mechanical problem......as in something physically broken.
The problem is that WAY too many shops are NOT competent anymore.



Please report back after you have a chance to ride it a few days to be sure.

What does "wants to" mean ?
And how long is "too long" ??

Is this still a stock machine.......or have things like the pipes and air intake been changed ??

Is it completely clear of trouble codes ?
