2015 zx6r with 15k miles on it, got the batter plugged in with oximiser and shows charge of 12.4v. Starts great but after I go for a short ride, say 10-15 mins and I turn off the engine then the bike won’t start back again. Plug it back in for a while and will start again. Is it the battery not holding the charge or the alternator is damaged? Any advice appreciated. Thanks

Well, we kind of need more information on the symptoms. "It won't start" doesn't really tell us anything about what's going on. Does it crank/turn over? Does it just make a clicking noise? Does it do anything at all when you push the starter button? How many miles are on the bike?

Also, welcome to the forum!

Thank you all for your suggestions, it was the battery. Just to let u know for future reference, first shot of start was always fine and then battery didn’t hold enough charge and didn’t charge fast enough to start the bike again. It would try to start but would eventually die out. Managed to do bump start once, gave up on the second time. Swapped the battery today, no problem after that.
