The bike is a self starter and will consider using a seperate battery to start the bike.
Sounds like you just need to use as 9 volt Energizer to light the tires for 10 seconds.
They are about one buck a pop, light as a feather and always fresh out of the box.

Jcro has a 720CCA LiP04 in his bike. Its the same size as a stock battery. His bike always starts... mine with the 300 CCA has to have the charger between rounds...

Wow that’s a beast for its weight. I gotta admit it’s pricey but it’s a quick weight loss from my 11 pound Deca.

Right on...I'm looking at the XPS V-10, has 680CCA and very small/light, will be able to grow into when/if I drop a bigger mill in there. Ordering the 5 amp charger as well, should do the trick.
