Here is the story: my Blast doesnít want to start.
I put the battery on the charger and after 1 hour it says itís full and working, but when I reinstall it, the bike doesnít start anyway, I just hear the click.
Try to push start, and she finally decides to work. So I drive it to the nearest repair shop and ask them to give it a look.
The mechanic leave the battery on charge 48 hours, and declares itís dead. OK, maybe my charger was too optimistic... Anyway, he then tell me he has to put a new battery to be able to perform a diagnostic, because my battery is so dead he canít do it even keeping the battery plugged to the charger. The go on asking 150$ for a new battery.
Now, with 75 you can already get a pretty decent Yuasa so the price seems a tad to high, and secondly, how is it that he canít run a diagnostic without a working battery? Does it make sense to you? I feel like he is trying to find excuses to charge me as much as possible, but maybe I am too defensive.

Yes. Buy a new battery elsewhere. Put it in your bike. Diagnose it yourself. It won't be difficult.

For $150 could could get a LFP-4 battery and still have change left over.
