a balmy 35f degree outside @ 7:15am in Tulsa. 13.31v resting overnight voltage.

lights and heated grips turned on for about 5 seconds. then pressed starter button with choke off. don't want engine to start too soon. battery turns over engine strong ... draw is 124 amp for 3-4 seconds... repeat for 4 cycles.

finally the choke is turned on... R80G/S roars to life!
very impressive performance from Shorai LFX21 AH (pb eq)

but it's only 35f degree outside and bike has only been sitting outside for about 1/2 hour after sitting overnight in a 48f degree garage. still a valid scenario for folks riding to work.

voltage recovering after above load test
