Hello!
I bought a brand new Husqvarna FC 250 2017 before 4 months ago. I was going to start it this morning but it wouldn't so I didn't try more than 3-4 seconds of pushing the button. Started it with pushing and everything was normal. When I got back home I left the battery charging with a normal charger for 2 hours. It lasted 76 hours of riding, I'm using the bike for enduro. Can I get something else with 12 voltage instead of the stock one? Any tips?
Thanks in advance.

I do not know about in the UK but ..... Here in the USA Western Power Sports makes the best Featherweight Lithium Ion Battery that is light weight battery. You can buy a regular lead old style battery and modify the area to make room for the much larger and heavy 5-10 lb battery.

You know you MUST warm the battery to start it after sitting don't you?

Maybe pay to have a WPS battery shipped to you?

I press the start button 2-3 times to activate the fuel pump and warm the battery a bit after sitting. Sometimes it starts at 1 or second try, sometimes it just doesn't want to so I push start it.
I put a 12V led bulb yesterday but I doubt it would die from that because I only rode with it like 2-3 minutes. I actually want to buy a bigger battery, would it be a problem to computer or anything else?

If the Huskies is like the KTM you have to change the battery box to be able to put a larger battery in it, the stock battery in the KTM was junk. I put shorai in it the 210 amp. Starts much easier and we had a problem with the stock battery going dead also.

My 15.5 450SXF had a battery recall where they replaced the battery with a better one. I was going to get a WPS when I found out about the recall.

Hello there! My choice of a battery was 4ride, it is 12V 6 amp. I had to modify the place a bit and it fit perfectly. The bike starts so quick now, even if it is 1st start. It only costed me 30$. Photo

very heavy compared to the proper battery. The guy I bought my KTM had don't that and I went back to the proper battery and the bike lost 4-5 lbs. and handles better!

Didn't notice any difference in handling, using the bike for enduro, not motocross. Uh, my battery is 6ah, not 10. It's smaller than this one on picture, just noticed lol.
