Drop 9 Lbs for only $ 11.11 a pound !

When it dies get an Earth X LiFePo4 Battery - saves 9 Lbs at the steering head for only about $ 100 more than a gel cell - it has run down, overcharge protection and cell balancer built in - had mine a couple years now no problems it starts great. Where else can you save 9 Lbs up high on the bike for only $ 11.11 a pound on a V Rod ? Cost me $ 30 a Lb. to ditch the stock down low boat anchor exhaust and buy a new one that weighed 23 Lbs less. :blahblah: Seriously, these Earth X's are freaky light batteries. :D

Havent done anything to maintain it except charging it about a year ago and about a month ago. I just ride year round. I pretty much just take it to work. I figure if it starts on a cold morning it will likely start 9 hours later. If there were some Vrod rallies near me I would probably go. I might be one of the few HD owners who has had one over 10 years and dont have a single HD T-shirt.

Thanks for the battery info, will make a note of it.

:eek: Oh, hell no. Play it safe and get a new one and you also might find somewhere warmer too.

Same old story- machines love to be used on a regular basis and yes, we reap rewards in many ways doing that. This is true from lawnmowers to large jets ( Ask me how I know ) But at the end of the day it's just a 12v Lead Acid M/C Battery. No One really cares - when you finally kill it get an Earth X - you will be a modern, happy camper.
