I am buying a x18 4 stroke super bike used, but the owner said that the battery is dead and needs to be "jumped" by another car through jumper cables... i was wondering if i needed a new motor or will it work after i jump the super bike battery.... and why cant he just charge the dead battery with the wall charger?

I have an X18 2008, the batteries on these Chinese bikes don't last long, have to keep them charged, if you let them get to low or go dead there Toast. Is it a 4 speed, can you kickstart it?? It has a magneto ignition, and charging system, think you can start it with a dead battery unless its an auto trans.

Are you sure that pepboys would have a battery for the x18 bike? If you are how much would the battery and charger cost?

cheap is cheap man
just go to the autopart store and match it up for size, or dont worry about it if its a kick (all x18s were) the lights will work when its running

If it is an X8, w/ a 110cc, it probably is a automatic trans w/ electric start, which means you need a good battery. I went to TNCscooters and got a $12 12v, 1.5 amp charger and $3 plug in for the bike, 3 prong, plugs right in, keeps your stuff charged.

They have all kinds of scooter-PB batteries, wiring, plug sets to make your own wires. Get the volts & ampere hour off the front of the battery , like 12v 4amphr find a battery the same size and hook ups, or get plugs and make your own.
