What's up...

I just picked up an 09 zx6r and for some reason my battery keeps dying and the bike only has 5200 miles on it!! Any ideas on as to what could be causing this to happen?! Thanks in advance! Rabbit (Terry)

Start with the cheapest fix and replace the battery. The bike being 4 years old with not many miles on it the battery might not be holding a charge. It may just be too dead. Also remember that a motorcycle stator isn't like a cars alternator. It doesn't charge the battery at an idle. You have to be above 4000rpm I believe.

Like peanut said I would replace the battery right away. That is probly your problem and what about the gas inside the tank, did you remove that old stuff and put new stuff in
