    I said that they make one that is rated for it. It costs about $25. I looked on RevZilla going to post it here but didn't find it and moved on to something else. I remember FortNine talking about it. These bikes have a really accessible battery. If I still had the Ducati where I had to take the tank off to get to it then I would buy the up rated connector.

    Over the years i have tried several brands and now am back with the stock Harley softail battery.
    I tried several braille batteries and haven't had any luck.
    The good thing about most Harley shops is they keep fresh batteries.
    Just my experience and opi ion

    Paul,

    It's hard to believe several Braille batteries didn't work for you! Where did you purchase them? I haven't had any issues. I could see one being defective but not several?
