    Posted: 05 Dec 2021 at 23:28
Hi folks newbie here to owning a gen2 ,I bought the bike after it had been in storage for a couple of years,the previous owner had a new battery fitted, but it flattens the new battery and only attempts to fire every now and then.
The new battery is 10amp,should I replace it with a more powerful amp wise battery,iv also replace the solenoid with an 150amp version..
Any info would be grand,👌🙂

The battery is not man enough so that is a good place to start. Min 12ah ideally 14.

What year Gen2 mate? It should already have the 150amp solinoid, the upgrade leads are well worth it. When you fit the new battery go through the correct procedure 

Key on don't start, 30 seconds or so set the clock and shift light. 
Key off
Key on start up. 

This prevents the battery going into a drain mode and wrecking the new battery. 
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

Upgraded Battery Leads  - Yep
150A Solenoid (If you don't already have it)
Upgraded Battery - get one with High CCA - over 200A

I would also add new plugs if it's been stood for two years and then been repeatedly cranked over, good chance they have been fouled.

Yes don't leave the key in when you disconnect or reconnect the battery
