Our personal experience with Bikes over the past 20 years has been .... while all the high technology seem to be going into the bikes... They seem to be coming with crappier and crappier batteries.

- Cannot hold charge for more then a month or Two without use.
- If you leave your lights on for more then 20 min the battery is dead. :cursin:
- And no matter how you take care of it, they crap out after 2-3 years.?


Anyone else have some comments of Experiences..?

Just trying to get some Feedback from you guys.

i just dropped my bracket an inch and a half and use an old fashion $50 walmart acid battery. Has twice the cold cranking amps and is much better than this new garbage. Also I use $5 harley davidson relays instead of the super expensive honda ones

I guess I'm lucky(knock on wood) have my bike since June of 07 and not one problem with the battery. Longest it sits for was a week, Ride when there's no rain and Not much when your in Cali.

Yes, I remember I was riding all day and decided to pass my friends house and visit him. We talked for like 10-15 minutes and then I tried to start my bike back up, it didn't... I had to bump start it but unfortunately I couldn't get enough speed to turn over the engine. Plus it doesn't help when your on a flat ground while the rode comes to a peak in the middle. Luckily I asked for jumper cables and my other buddy came over and I jumped it.

mine wont last if it sits for over a month without riding, and its '08, kinds dissapointing since I have an '04 honda rancher atv and I just had to replace the battery in it this past winter (and my atv stays up for sometimes months at a time)

When I first got my bike, I would turn it on just to hear it and see the highbeams - that died shortly after. After getting a new one along with a Battery Tender, I've never had that problem...

Maybe you guys never charge it?
