If you have ever come back from a ride only to smell an eggy kinda stench from your bike, check your battery.

This was going on for a week on the intruder, turns out the sealed battery was very hot, starting to leak and the top was starting to separate!

volt test showed the regulator was pushing out 18.3v @ over 2000rpm.

so to round up, the battery is fucked due to the dying regulator...the eggy smell was the reason i checked...eggy smell = sulphur...which is the gas produced in a battery afaik.

Hydrogen sulfide + sparks = Explosion Heat Flame Fire Event


Good thing you caught it, hot batteries turn ugly real fast.....I seen a girl in high school hook up some jumpers to a battery that was cracked on top, the little spark from the jumper set it off....blew the whole top off the battery and burned her arm pretty good
