I changed the battery myself. Cleared the code. Road about 9 miles. Seems like its fine now. I'll check it when I go to change the Oils and Filter

I believe it was the LFX27A3-BS12, with 405 CCA and weighing 3.85 pounds. But, I'm not sure your 2009 would take the same one. You need to go to https://shoraipower.com/en/ and see what they recommend for your year and model. Just select "Products/Batteries" from their menu.

I got a Twin Power Lithium to replace the battery. Hard Drive had me E-mail them. Never responded. Its been about 1 1/2 weeks now.
Interestingly the Twin Power Tested at 13.3V and 247 CCA right out of the box. Left it on a Bike Master Lithium Tender until I installed it. Weather has been crappy here in NJ. Just did the Oil and Filter Change, Primary Fluid change. And installed my Arlen Ness Derby.

One of these?



I carry one in my saddle bag and have used it several times to jump my bike, other people's bikes, my car, my wife's car, etc. I charge it every 6 months or so. If I am stopping at a hotel in the colder months I will take it inside with me at night just in case the bike's battery doesn't like the cold. My softail battery even when new barely starts the bike below 20 degrees.

I have a version of that. Bought at Sears. It works. And sometimes doesn't. Depends how low the battery (That needs jumping) is? I think mine was a Pilot. 2 years later the battery swelled. Cracked the case. Now I bought a Schumacher SL1315 from Walmart. Havent used it yet.
