ive got a 62 xlch it has no battery. the lights flicker really bad, and im wondering if i could add a battery to the system to help them out. or maybe theres something else i could do as well. i also dont see any room on the bike to put a battery as the oil tank i have is the big box type that runs perpendicular under the seat. anyone got any ideas? :xlrocks :flag_oreg

you could run a capaciter, or battery eliminator

their small , about the size of a film canister

theres already a capacitor wired in there... the lights flicker... do i have a short maybe? or a bad ground?

flickering at low engine speeds is normal as the generator doesn't put out much charge at idle

a small battery will cure it or like my trumpit you can learn to live with it (leave the capasiter in too)
