On my 05 WR450 when the bike is running and the battery is disconnected will it continue to run because the charging system is working or will it die reguardless? Dumb @$$ question......

Threw the battery in it, started right up. I don't think the battery has to be charged (but it can't be shorted or draining on the system) but it needs to be there in my experience.

Will the bike keep running or die when you disconnect the battery?
Does it determine if the charging system is working or not?

Thank you for your reply. It is much appreciated.
The bike will run but will likely stall and not start at low rpms. according to the prints on line the dc portion of the stator will power the cdi but not untill you reach 2k rpms where you have a smooth dc current prior to that it is pulsed and will miss. To eliminate the battery you will need an eliminator circuit which usually consists of atleast a cap and resisters to electronically look like a battery. As for the charging system it will not know the diff. All it does is supply a voltage and a small amount of current.

Thank you William for your reply.
Normal. Your CDI is DC and at idle and low speeds, the power generated is unstable, hence no battery-bike stalling. You can try installing a capacitor if you do not want to run a battery. It is not wise to have nothing in place of the battery or a capacitor as they also absorb over voltages too.
