I had only put the battery on the charger last nite. It is the same kind of 'gel' charger
that the shop uses. charger indicates good battery and full charge, but definitely is not a
'strong' turnover of the bike. cables are indeed tight and clean, just put battery back in this morning.
Its an 08 bike with original 4 yr + old battery,id
bet battery is getting tired.
If thats the case when you replace it make sure to get the upgraded/more powerfull 310CCA version of same battery,stock R* battery is 270cca.
Heres a link to what the dealer/sealer told me was a high perf AGM maint free 310cca battery for super price of 49.90 /63.85 inc S&H ,hard to beat that price for an AGM hi perf maint free 310cca battery.
The battery includes acid pack to activate yourself,just remove vacuum seal on battery & insert acid pack into filler holes of battery to fill it with acid(its pre-measured for each cell so no worry of overfilling spillig acid),install permanat battery cap-s,charge per mfg's ins,and your good to go.
The feedback from many others that bought his bike batteries is very good,nothing negative at all on the batteries.
Some peoples feedback said they were a litte hesitant to buy the ytx20hl-bs because it was less then half price of yami
dealers or local auto stros 310cca battery but were glad they did because the battery worked out great.
Heres the next best deal i found on a factory activated ready to use Deka AGM Maint Freee 310cc battery for $77.95 inc S&H,just drop it in,hook up the 2 battery calbes,install the seat,and your off to the races!/LOL!!! .
Iv'e been running a Deka AGM main
free factory activated battery in my 06 R* since 2009 with no problems thus far. It always spins it over very well,even started NP in 35 deg temp with 20-50 oil that was too heavy for that temp i dont noramlly ride in.
Here's the link to it.
Locally @ the autostore/small bike shop/Yami dealer inc tax & core-disposal fee of old battery you will be paying anywehere from $115-140 for the more powerfull upgraded hi perf AGM main free 310cca battery so the above batteries are a good deal for sure if you can wait 3-4 days to get them saving you approx $51-76 depending on where you buy it locally.
