Hi all,
I’m in Cali, but kept a 2008 Pamplona 150 at my daughters in Mass. for vacation. My son-in-law starts it all the time. Last week it wouldn’t start. It’s an original battery with 10,000+ miles on it.

I ordered him one from Amazon, he put it in, and it started. The next day it wouldn’t start, and the charger said it was at 80%, and when it got to 100%, it starts.

Could that be because it isn’t being ridden, so the battery isn’t strong enough, or charged enough, in that cold weather back there? It runs fantastic when it runs. Oil is good, new gas, etc...
Thanks
