    Does this apply to the +07? I disconnected the battery to test a spare dash I bought and didnt notice anything different.

    I just puchased 2007 RSVR, battery was dead off of the truck. I replaced the battery without key in ignition. Should I do the key on and 15 second wait to be sure?

    yes do it if you have not already done so, but if its been sitting now for two days since connecting the battery before you've done this or ridden it then your battery may already be well depleted. The issue is when you install it and it sitting for a bit before you go and ride it (like installing the battery at night and not riding it until later the next day) it will sit draining all the while.

    Ok, so I've dis connected the battery before to install a tender lead and I followed the procedure and I think it went correctly but I've always had a bit of a weak battery. I installed a new battery today and now I'm second guessing myself the entire time... What if my new battery goes dead?? What if I did it wrong the first time and that's why I felt like I always had a weak battery?? I'd hate to ruin another one... How often is the red immobilizer light supposed to blink? Somebody tell me it's all gong to be ok... Hold me...


    Ok I'm done whining and worrying now, thanks for the write up!!

    When the speedo "Zero's out" how do you put the correct original mileage back on the odometer?

    You can't.

    So, I guess whenever buying a pre-owned RSV1000 with that type of instrument cluster, you can't actually "know" what the true mileage of the machine is?

    so i'm in the market for a rsv. i've been looking at 2006+ bikes. it is not very clear if the issue has been fixed on later models....from what i can understand, this is relevant to rsv's up to 2009 as long as it has that particular dash? sorry for my confusion. thanks

    Is there a video of this procedure online somewhere? If so, can someone attach the link. I'd like to see it for myself. Thank you!!!

    My apologies for butting in to this thread but I am not sure the multimeter test mentioned in amauri's original post is correct. At least not for European bikes.
    As someone else pointed out, European bikes have the headlights on as son as the ignition is switched on. With a headlight bulb of 55att, that is going to draw at least 4 Amps and, given the only power source is the battery, the current draw from the battery will be a minimum of 4 Amps. The 45 mAmps suggested will get lost in this and it could be difficult to detect the current drop after the 5 seconds wait. You may notice it you saw the current draw go down from, say, 4.355 Amps to 4.290 Amps but you would need to be aware of what you are looking for. If US bikes don't have the headlights come on with the ignition, no problem.

    I too had the odometer zero wit the key/battery combination. Then read a thread about I the day after. D'oh!

    Can't say I have ever had a battery discharge by failing to do the 15 seconds wait though. I have had it discharge through a faulty immobiliser unit. Fortunately there was thread on this and how to repair the immobiliser so all was well. Eventually.

    Hi,yes this procedure is for rsv and tuono.Even if you follow the procedure the battery needs recharging quite often
