Dam have to buy a battery , who makes this junk !!!! only got seven years out of this POS
wow...whats your secret?
Damn.....I replace them every Two yrs regardless
7 years is awesome, lucky if i get 3
Bet you don't get seven out of the next one
Still on my original battery myself, I always connect to a battery tender as soon as I pull into the garage and it stays on until I ride.
I learned the hard way and now change out my battery every 2 years. One morning it starts and later at the bar it's deader than a door nail and won't take a charge. 7 years is a LONG time... You lucked out.
I also quit buying the high rev big buck batteries. The regular ones will start the bike if they are charged up. In my 107 S&S cruiser I had to buy a Walmart battery once for a whopping $48 and it lasted 2 years with no problems.
I can get that kind of life out of car and truck batteries, but I only get 2 to 3 years out of motorcycle batteries.
I do the same, why not ??:2thumbs:
Seven years is a long time ,I think three years and change them out ,it,s not fun if the bike die in the midle of nowhere special if you have no reception off the phone and no BEER:up:
I do it on my HD, but the dog is always rearing to go. But even in the winter, I fire them up at least every two weeks when it's 30* out side just to hear them warm up and circulate the oil!
Deka made the batteries for bigdog.
I have to agree I did luck out! Even though the dog was on the Battery tender plus and the light was green "fully charged" it would not spin over , I opted for the Yuasa "AGM" replacement 310CCA YTZ20HL BS mainly because free shipping and ease of ordering through Amazon the "Bigdog Battery" was 270CCA it was always on the tender after riding!!! never thought I would get anywhere near seven years
Time will tell, they're not proven yet..just like Axel's EHC..
Please, please, for the love of all things good...not again!!
500 + CCA! I seriously doubt that. Suppose it can be done on oir battery size, but that would need a lot of surface on plates meaning most likely ”s” shape very thin plates close to each other... not a setup for a long lasting battery.
More likely that is around 300 CCA battery with new sticker. and why not, true CCA is rather difficult to measure so they do get away with that.
Pretty impressive then. Cca is basically done by increasing the surface area of the plates. If they (who ever makes those batteries) have figured how to make them last and survive heat, that is great.
Though 310 is rather enough to crank factory 117. High compression is different animal. If 310 doesn’t crank standard 117 well in warm temperature there is a problem somewhere. 500 cca is like using hammer and chisel....
