Dead Ducati

Looking for some thoughts / ideas please. A week or so ago my I noticed the battery tender on my Panigale 1199S (six plus years old with OEM battery) was flashing red. I turned on the ignition and the screen came on but upon pressing the starter, nothing. After a few tries you could see the battery was dying. I tried another battery tender and the same thing Ė started charging and in a few mins it showed bad. I assumed the battery was gone and after nearly 7 years with the OEM battery I thought it just needed replacing. I ordered an Antigravity lithium battery and put it in today. Other than some issues with fit I got it in, connected the cables and when I turned on the ignition I got absolutely nothing Ė the screen didnít come to life at all. Let alone start up. I borrowed a voltmeter and found that I had 13.6 V on the lithium battery and it stayed at this voltage when I turned the ignition on. It didnít drop at all. I then checked the OEM battery and it still had 12.4V so now Iím not sure if it was a battery issue after all? The last time I rode the bike it was a few weeks ago and everything was normal and when I got back from the ride I put the bike on the battery tender. I went to ride the bike again a week or so ago I got the flat battery (or so I thought) issue. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Long shot - Did you perhaps accidentally swap the polarity when you installed the battery?

12.4 on the old battery wonít start the bike. Probably drops as soon as a load is put on it. Double check your connections on the new battery.

Thanks for all the thoughts and suggestions. Checked leads, connections and all fuses and all seem solid with no blown fuses. I haven't got the electrical skills to figure out a potential rectifier problem so I guess a trip to the dealer is next!!

Did you ensure the Li battery was fully charged before installation? They operate a bit different from lead-acid batteries. See the link below.

Thanks I've reached out to Antigravity to ask them about this as the instructions with the battery says its ready to use straight out of the box. I also measured 13.6V and it says it goes into S/D mode to provide one last charge when needed at 12.6V so I assume it should easily start or at least get the dash to light up at 13.6V. Appreciate the feedback.

right now i have a cheapo lead acid battery in my bike....hooked up to the tender for the winter. why, because my shorai is acting up....again. just keep taking advantage of the warranty i guess because mine seems to work once or twice and then it goes flat suddenly you don't even get the clicking. it's almost like i need to keep it on the charger when the bike is not running. so thanks for starting this thread, reminds me i need to send mine in again so i don't have to worry about it this summer. it's hard to leave the bike parked for long periods when away from home not knowing if it will start up when i return to it.
