Do I need a new battery?
ok, so i have added proton flushmounts, clear alternatives tail light integrated turn sigs, power commander 3, license plate light. today after riding some twisties, i stopped at a turkey hill to grab a cold drink, when i was done and ready to backtrack home, i went to start and i heard crank crank die. i said oh, i held the front brake in, tried again, tach swung up down and NO crank!. called a buddy he said my battery is drained. i then tried run n starting it. no luck. luckily about a 1/4 mile down the road was an advance auto parts, the guy gave me a jump and fired up after several tries. i then noticed earlier goin through some corners my tach didnt seem to pass 4ks. i was like ok, im hittin this next corner hard. it did pass up to nearly 8 so i was happy with that.
so, with all this stuff, my question is do i need a new battery? a bigger capacity one? i now have the battery tender hooked up to it and its charged up and starting fine now.

OTOH, if you try to be the tough guy and it gets out of control, a few years from now you may be thinking, "Man, prison still sucks. I hope I don't get boned in the ass again today."
