Default new battery = the awesome

i had a #16 powersport battery from walmart. it worked but if my bike failed to start i couldnt get 30 seconds of crank from it. and it wouldnt crank very fast even on a full charge

i picked up an AGM type battery. #20 type...
and WOW.. bike turns over like a sewing machine now... nice and fast... starts super fast now...


batteries plus had it for $79.99 i believe.


they also have a slightly better one for $109

while it is slightly skinnier.. i just used some rubber mat to take up the room... might be a good spot for a small tool kit
