Jenny, one question.
What effect do the 35w headlight, the HID, the fan, and all the other electrics (running at the same time) have on the charging system of the battery.

As an example, the HID system needs a good 7amps @12-13V to ignite and get warm, thereafter only 3amps. Together with the above mentioned stuff, this may cause problems with charging the battery, thus meaning no electric start!

PS: I assume you've got a larger capacity battery installed (stock one is only 4Ah)?
