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.

as long as everything is wired right your batt/stator can easily handle all that, id take it easy til ya figure out the problem, you dont want that to quit in the middle of a turn!


yea yea yea, i know my cycle may one day get me killed..... but i get to ride it first!

Any auto parts store can load test the battery for you
that is the best way to tell if the battery is ok or not



If it doesn't challange you it won't change you
Only two ways to live life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
