sorry guys, spent an hour or so sifting through threads and couldnt find anything helpful, strangely enough, not even in any of the hot chick segments either. My 03 Mille is a non starter, I had the old battery for a while, and shes lasted pretty well due to the fact shes on a tender nightly. My stepson works at Mission Motorsport, so had him check it out, sure enough. his testing mimiced what my dash readout stated....fine until load and the nPOOF down to a reading of 9. Time for a replacement....so this morning in goes the new Yuasa....reading 12.8, crank, crank, crank, no fire and the reading drops to below 11.....anyone have any ideas, or should I have left the battery on the trickle overnight?....Also, is the turn the key and wait 20 seconds when a newbie is installed, the rule for the milles as well....I am hoping this is just a battery issue, but my luck sucks lately. Oh, hear the fueal pump priming, and she turns over, so its not the relay or fuel pump ( can smell a little gas from the pipe...thx guys....HELP! oh, and me bad, HAPPY THANKSGIVING APRILIA PEEPS!
