My 05 VTX still has the original battery. When should i replace it.
I see these new type, lithium ion that weigh way less & are rated to last way longer without a trickle charge. I saw em on ebay tonight, i feel like such a bleeping dinosaur after seeing this technology.
My 87 year old Mom tells me about this machine the other night, her girlfriend, that you hook it to your windshield & it will tell you where to go if you don't know how to get there. I cracked up
laughing over that one. And i still stick a bleeping compass to my windshield.
Funny, because i have never had a trickle charger, i just go out to the garage & fire her up every 1 to 2 months in the winter & voila.
Also, is this true?, i have heard that instead of just idling at about 1,000 rpm or so, it takes at least 2500 rpm to charge the battery, something to do with the charging system,
not like it is a 71 Torino, my 1st car.
