It's true. If they were in stock and I had your funds the Tenere
would have a new roommate.

I found em.

Because my live display only shows me the last 10 or so posts and your comments were on historic posts I did not see them and had to search for them.

I'll get on to it now, sorry.

Edit....done ........

Absolutely without question!

Hell, I'd wear low-cut blouses and super-short skirts, *** just like Pluric ***, if it would magically get me a bunch more motorsicles!!!

Anybody have a battery recommendation?

The Yuasa that I am pulling out has 210 cca the $85 dollar one that Batteries Plus recommends is 180 cca.

The Yuasa is $175

Worth it?


Looking for something I can pick up locally today.

I don't have a recommendation but when I change out my battery I'm gonna be looking for more cca instead of less. I've always thought from the sound of start up that it takes a bit to move these jugs. I'll at least use the stock one. I wouldn't trust Batteries Plus well maybe for some stuff.

Is the Yuasa OEM? I'm the second owner and wasn't sure if the it was oem or aftermarket.

Giving it a good charge now.

It was stone dead, without even enough juice to light the display after a month of sitting.

I've got a few outfits I don't wear anymore I'll be happy to "pay it forward".
I've seen part of your fleet. I don't think you really need them. I think it would be more because you just like the look.

I dunno'... I just don't think any of your best outfits would work or go well with my bald head and beard.

Besides, I'm much more of a BBM* than you are, Pluricity...

I guess I'll just have to be happy with the motorbike quiver I've got, eh?

I put Lithium batteries of a good brand in my other bikes, they start just by looking at the starter switch :-o
Once the model of battery is available for the ST I will install it, so good!

Firm believer in Yuasa or similar. Stock/OEM/Yuasa's always seem to last me 4-6 years.... I've replaced too many "knockoffs" after 2-3 years. I treat all batteries the same.... so it's the battery....
