_CY_ I am following your thread and will pipe up any time I have something to add or a question, such as, WOW, this battery is only 6 months old, how did it get in such an imbalanced condition?
Also I love that your riding an R80GS! Between you, me, and 10,000 ADV members, I think the R80GS was the best air cooled GS ever. The 100 was a step back, the 1150 a claw foot bathtub on wheels, and the 1200 a fat pig, elegant on super slab, surprisingly good on the twisties, and like any other pig, likes to wallow on it's side in the mud.
Nice :) I couldn't say things like that while I worked for BMW
It is also pretty easy on the amps draw being low displacement, low compression and very smooth for a 2 banger compared to the downright buzzy F800.
The thread I started is to answer specific charging system and battery questions relevant to the F8 for an adventurer that is a personal hero and sent me his Shorai, but as I said. I'll post here when the question is generic.
