And here I was thinking I might be the last smart ass. Darn fine come back, Mike! LOL!

Actually, I sold he Harley a few years ago when I switched over to BMW. I sold to a guy who has babied the machine and it's still a fine bike with over 130,000 on the clock. I had written the date of the battery install on the top of the Odyssey's case and he changed it because he was afraid it would croak. It's still alive as his bench battery.

Keep zingin', Michael!

Mike

If you've got lots of time you can read this:

If not, buy a Motobatt and save money while getting a good-or-better-than-an-Oddysey battery.

The 4 yo Odssey AGM started the bike on the second cranking attempt.
Cranking was not snappy but kind of sluggish but it did start/run.
The battery is 8 years old and will be replaced soon but it still acts healthy. Sold me on'em.
And you're going to replace the battery? Why? I would clean connections, give the battery a good charge and use it for another 8 years.

Be prepared to alter the connections.
No big deal, it's just not plug&play.
+1. Just do it and don't ask questions unless you can't figure out how to install
