  • Battery Recommendation?

    Well it looks like it might be time to replace my battery....I thought i was going to be stranded today, I pulled over to buy some fireworks and when i went to fire the bike up it barely turned over then nothing but clicks....I let it set for about 20 minutes and it finally fired up. I got back home and it stayed on the battery tender for about 8-9 hours and still showed as charging and the tender was pretty hot to the touch. It have never taken that long to recharge from drained before. I am not sure how old this battery is I will have to pull it to find out...I know its atleast 2+ years old as i have had the bike that long.
    So my question is any good battery recommendations?

    I would tighten yur connects first , if they a little loose it makes for poor starts and bad charging, two years aint no time for a battery.

        yeah i checked all those, that was the first thing that came to mind since i disconnected it when i extended the wiring for the new bars. And im pretty sure the battery is way more that 2 years old.

            Two years in the high heat though can really zap a car battery. Wouldn't it be the same with a motorcycle battery.

                I like Battery Mart @ www.batterymart.com/ They carry both the "Deka" battery under the "Big Crank" brand name and the Odyssey.

                  I ride on saturday and sunday,,,then the bike sits and sits,,bout thursday I hook up the Tender. 20 minutes later It goes steady green. I unhook It,,
                  Saturday AM I hook it up again,,10 minutes later, steady green an ready to ride. Garage gets pretty hot during the week.
                  I see no need to leave It on the Tender. any thoughts ???

                    Leave it on the Tender, that's what it's meant for...It's not a normal battery charger, but a battery tender....It has a built in circuit breaker to prevent any overcharging...It keeps the battery at full charge all the time thus making the battery last longer...

                      Hmm during this past winter I think there were a couple stretches where I went 10 days without riding, the bike only outside with a cover and no battery tender on it, never had one problem with it starting. Just my experience.
