get a real battery
It’s easy to overlook little shit.
Ditch the shitty pep-boys battery.
It’s going to eventually leak acid all over shit.
Plus, they suck at holding a charge.
Pick up a sealed gel or AGM (absorbed glass mat) battery.
These come charged and ready to go, and for a good price.
And, I think they look pretty sleek. I don’t mind it being visible.
I have one of these in all 3 of my bikes.
Even on my cb650, which has the shittiest charging system ever… if the rotor stops working and drains down the battery all the way… Give the battery an hour to relax, and it will self-regenerate the 12v charge. Then hopefully you’ll have enough time to make it home. Pep boys battery 100% won’t do that.

This is officially the last Thursday ride of the summer with Fall beginning this Sunday. I think we’ve had more than half the Thursday rides rained out this summer but tonight’s forecast is clear and in the 60’s so come out and have some fun. BP @8pm. Ride then beers.
