Stupid Battery
« on: September 09, 2014, 03:12:37 am »
My factory battery (2006 model Honda VTX) is failing. It will crank with the engine cold. But, it doesn't like a "hot" start very much...

 8 Years?!? You got your moneys worth out of that one! 

Holy cow, I think mine lasted 3 years. I currently have mine on a Battery Tender when I don't ride, seems to keep it in good shape.

Big believer in the battery tender here too! I would attribute much of the longevity of my battery to that.
