this bike has a 5ah, that's what it had from new, looking at AGM alternatives
Any feedback on Lithium batteries? I know they are usually 1/2 the size or twice the power, but how is durability on a dirt bike? Any particular brand?
Been slowly picking away at the bike, bled rear brake, greased up the slider pin (was stuck) replaced missing exhaust header bolt... this bike will be like new when I finally get to ride it to Pachaug, just can't leave things alone, I think its called OCD?
You can borrow my bike too even drop it if you want to put that much work making it like new again too.lol
They're not perfect, but I would still buy one for weight savings and claimed longevity and power ratings.
I would just be sure to keep my receipt.
I have not had luck with any Lithium battery holding a good charge in the cold.
I have a Shorai in the Husaberg and it has started up first or second push every time.. down into the low 30's... sat for the last 3 weeks in my garage and fired up this morning first push.. didnt even pull out the cold start button.
That has been the discussion on the DR650 thread lately. People say you have to turn on your headlite for 2 minutes to "warm" up the battery.
Lithium does hold a charge a lot better than lead acid though. I haven't used mine enough to really give a decent review though. It hasn't caught on fire though, I can say that much.
Do you guys use battery tenders? Everytime the bikes come into the garage, the tender goes on , reguardless of time of year. Never have had a battery issue. Just my 2cents.
i have a Battery Tender JR. it works great. plug it in .. when the light turns green .it is charged. its that easy
I have three bikes and four battery tenders.. including an expensive high speed one for the Shorai.. I can tell you with 100% certainty that not one is plugged in as I type this I need to work on that.
I've got two from Harbor Freight for about $9. The one in the garage put the voltage up to 14.7 with out turning off so I just charge each bike once a week (if I don't ride it) for 3 or 4 hours. Seems to be all they need.
Attention to detail?
Lithiums just set the Dreamliner on fire
Where's Minnesota Upper Yuasa
I also sprung for a Yuasa Battery Keeper as a cheapy Walmart Schlumber cooked
2 of my batteries
I rarely have issues with batteries, this one however is not my bike... so I ordered an AGM, cheap and should get the job done
still need to get carb sorted out, it leaks gas, even on the bench when I hook it up to remote tank, opened it 3 times now but float, needle and seat appear to be fine.... one suspect is the rubber o-ring on the needle set is to blame, looks dried up, can't find anything else,...
I call bullshit!! Your hands are too clean to have been working on a bike!
I have no idea what the inside of your float bowl looks like but I had this problem on my 72 cb350 that took me a while to find. The brass tube is the overflow drain tube; just below the domed top there is a small hole for fuel to drain out if the level gets too high.. The long crack in the side of the tube is not supposed to be there but with my not so great eyesight I couldn't even see the crack; that tube is thinner than it looks in the photo. Fuel would constantly drip out the drain tube until the bowl was almost empty..
got one word for you GLOVES!
My carb leaks gas into the engine, especially when I twist the throttle. Still trying to figure out why.
I have these damn cracks on almost every CB350 float bowl overflow tube I have (six at last count)
