Battery life

Had my 1299 for about a month now and noticed the battery going really low very quickly, anyone else had this problem, also had a internal sensor warning on the dash.

Can't comment on your specific problem, but I personally always change the battery for one of the lightweight batters. They have more cold-starting power and last longer...and are much lighter.

The 1299 has a battery indicator?

I have the CTek charger and it has indicators on the plug to tell you how the battery is doing. Our bikes, especially with the DDA connected, would probably only hold a week of charge before it needs recharging.

So when I see yellow, I just plug it in.

Does it have the data acquisition device plugged in (look in the tail storage unit)? If it is plugged in, mine used to flatten the battery constantly on my 1198SP. Removed it, and problem disappeared. The 1199 battery is much smaller (I am guessing same battery is in the 1299), so it may flatten even quicker. Good luck on your search.

I haven't looked at the owners manual for the base or S model but the manual on the R confirms a real time battery voltage reading as a menu option in the display. In addition it gives a warning if voltage drops below 11.5V.

Ah ok.

I know they do have the voltage indicator when the bike is keyed on. I guess the warning is new in the Panigale.

I would still get the CTek or something similar. By the time you turn on the bike, you might loose the extra juice you need to start it. The indicator on the plug is much easier, plus the CTek actually conditions/repairs your battery and you get to keep the DDA on.

Makes life easier.

I highly recommend keeping the bike on a tender. Mine fires up every time and I still have the charcoal canister; even though I'm going to remove it soon.

I have always had all my bikes on a K-Tec trickle charger, so I was surprised that my OEM battery died after 18 months.

People need to remember that trickle chargers on measure voltage. Your battery can have internal faults, i.e a cell failure, and still hold >12volts charge.

Compared to me previous bike (2012 ZX10R) I'd agree that the 1299 battery can't keep a charge anywhere as long. Maybe its the electronics draining the battery? My ZX10R could stay in the garage without a trickle charger for over a month and still fire up. My 1299 won't start after just 2 weeks in the garage, she'd just keep on cranking without engine turning over. The only way she does fire up is if I roll her forward while holding down the ignition, i've noticed it somewhat helps the engine to crank over like a rolling start (yup in neutral!)
