Introducing my self, and my burnt 1198S

As the title sates. made an account to say hi.

I have/had a 2009 1198s black on bronze, that recently (yesterday) had a battery melt and catch fire. Still awaiting to hear from teh insurance company to determine total loss or not, has evidence of fire damage on the frame so im not expecting good news. If it is a total loss itll be bought back salvage, and either parted or sold.

let me know what you guys think.

Me personally I would buy it back and rebuild lol. Expecially with people on here having a vast amount of parts that are cheap...

But question... Did the bike have a lithium battery?

I'm interested in this answer as well.

I'd part it out.

Well, insurance totaled it out with out Even looking at it.

Payout was 12500. Buy back is 2450. So I’ll be buying it back with the intentions to rebuild and sell.

And yes. The bike had an anti gravity LI battery. The culprit.

Steer clear of them lol.

I would just walk away.. nay run.

I hate bikes that have learnt bad habits..

Take the money and go buy something else. Don’t start throwing good money away.

I'm betting the LI battery caught fire due to using a NON lithium battery charger. I've seen that happen many times.

These LI batteries need a specific charger.

Lol I’m aware they require specific chargers but It’s never been on a charger. And it’s about 18months old.

I do not like lithium batteries. I had one in my 2010 1198 and my nemesis traction control would not work because of the battery. The ground was not good enough and it kept giving me errors. I just stick with a good old 7 lb battery that works.

You can fix the bike pretty easily. There are a ton of used parts on ebay for cheap.

Yeah, that痴 the plan. But a nice oem battery. And find one of the 1198s being parted on eBay. Then once I get the title back I値l list it for around 5500-6k. Seem like a fair price ?

This has me worried. I've had the same battery in my 1098 for 4 years now and I only do 5 or 6 trackdays a year and it's never been on a charger. What caused the battery to catch fire?

Most likely an internal failure of the material between the anode and cathode causing a thermal runaway. I知 an engineer by trade so Once I get it out and fully dead I知 taking it apart. But it certainly melted a cell. Which all points to that.

I'll keep an eye on this thread to see what you find out once you get it apart. Sorry about your bike my friend.
