brand new gsxs1000 won't start

Just picked up brand new 1000f and after 5 miles it stalled and would not turn over. All lights on dash normal, press starter and just a slight click sound. Dealer came with a battery booster and it fired right up. Shut it off after about a minute and it started perfectly. Rode the rest of the way home (4miles) and shut it off and restarted fine. Checked all battery cables and hooked it up to the battery tender and within a 1/2 hour the tender went into full charge mode. This morning I went to start it and same issue, just a click sound. Any ideas? No word from dealership yet. Mike

No brand new. no modifications. I also thought bad battery but tender went in to storage mode within a 1/2 hour of hooking it up.

I've had that before with duff batterys, charger thinks it's fully charged but when you put a high load on it the battery just gives up.

duff battery

Hiya, my trickle charger somehow stopped working on my gsx-s1000 thru some weeks. I found it and put it right. My charger also says battery is good . leave the bike a day without charge and its dead again. I think the batteries are cheap crap and will not recover from going flat. My 1996 Blade went flat countless times and was on the bike many years and never let me down. Just in process now of buying a new battery.

So is that covered under warranty? Shouldn't the dealer be replacing the battery?

Edit: Just saw the above post. I just noticed my battery is leaking a little. WTF? I might have to replace it now.

in europe use the term "fit for use" legally it is reasonable to a expect Motorcycle battery to last a few years. If anyone sells goods within EU and possible other places (not sure on this) this law should apply. I had same issue with mine after two weeks. Local dealer tried to say not covered But soon caved when i stated this law clearly to them and offered to start negotiations / a decision on if this law applies to them on their comments section on their main web page and possibly in the press and other public forums. Ten mins later i rode out the shop with new battery and an apology from the dealer.
