I think it would start the bike as it's got nearly as many CCAs as stock lead acid, but it will be marginal for high compression, big bore etc. My guess is if you didn't ride 1 mile trips all the time it would work fine, especially if you're bike lights quickly and you didn't ride in really cold temps.

How far away should I keep plastic and wiring from the R/R? It's in a heat resistant mesh wrap. I put it under the seat. The bracket broke at the front and I don't feel like fixing it AGAIN!!

You would notice the cold weather I do with 2 4-cell batteries first attempt to fire it up just warms them up second shot is like normal. My bike starts right up normally.

Under the seat? The thing has a heat sink on it for a reason... to shed heat Wrapping it up and stuffing it under the seat doesn't seem like a good idea

Spud, this polite stuff is tiring, but if Laurie likes it I shall continue.
Thanks for posting the good report on the Antigravity 8 Cell battery. I'm glad it is working well for you. The Antigravity batteries have stronger terminals and are more robustly constructed than the Shorai batteries. In addition, the Antigravity batteries have more cranking power.

It's from these types of seats.





So I can make some new one of these for the side panels.

I'm replacing my front and rear brake pads for the first time. After consulting the service manual I've got a question.

Do I need to drain the brake fluid before I replace the pads or can it be done without losing any break fluid?

Just ease the pads back. What I usually do is loosen the cap (turning the bars making sure it's as level as possible) as the fluid level will rise when the pistons are recessed, then tighten everything back up once the pads are installed.

NOTE: ALWAYS TEST THE BRAKES TO BUILD UP PRESSURE BEFORE YOU MOVE THE BIKE.

If you're only replacing the pads, they come out without opening the system. You do not need to lose ANY fluid.
