battery came today.

you DO have to put the acid in, but its a well thought out system and I didnt spill a single drop nor got any on my hands.

well thought out, comes with various screws and spacers for the terminals ( loose screws, im not really a fan of that)
and a nice instruction manual for acid fill up, and initial charging ( specs for 1.5 amps... smallest I have is 2amps, unless I rig a wal wart up..)

the 20l BS

is about the same size as an Odyssey pc625, so it will fit an oilhead GS

ill stick on a charger tonight

edit maybe not, immediatly after fillup, voltage shows 12.76 volts, manual recommends an initial charge though, so I will

looks like a solid deal for the $36 though so far

Batteries

Do any of you use lithium ion batteries like Shorai or antigravity?

Mine came in yesterday, filled it, had it on BT overnight, installed it today. Bike starts much quicker than with old battery. Hit the button and she's running rather than waiting 1-2 seconds.

Another option for those who missed the sale...http://carl.krall.org/wordpress/?page_id=986

Not my idea, got it from one of the Concours forums.

So i finally got around to putting it in and it's literally an 1/8" to wide (front to back) I can't get it to drop far enough for the gas tank to clear.

anyone else with an 1150 have this?
