General Discussion / Batteries
« Last post by TankSlapper on Today at 06:00:14 PM »
Bah!

I bought a new battery for my wife's DR350. Got it at an auto parts store in Rapid. Paid about $100. That seemed like a lot, must be a good one. It sits in the cold for a couple weeks and hardly turns the bike over. Put it on a tender, didn't think much of it after that.

Bought another battery at the same place for the  ATV/Plow. Didn't learn I guess. Paid about $120 bucks. Last week I plowed and shut it off after an hour. Battery didn't have the juice to restart. So I jumped it and stuck it in the garage. Just got done trouble shooting the charging system. It's fine. Battery is good after sitting on the tender. I'm just going to guess that the extreme cold was affecting the battery.  But it wasn't that cold, maybe single digits.

So, adjusted brain for price point and looking at the best you can buy. Optima sells one for the ATV at a measly $261.00 bucks! The  Optima for the jeep was over $300.

I'm living in an alternate universe I guess. What luck do you guys have for PowerSports batteries these days?

I titled AND plated the 300RR today. A first for me. Plenty four strokes streeted. Never a two stroke.

Did not help with the spring fever but still cool.

Yeah, super cool.  North Dakota is the same, I even have a tag on my trials bike... Just wish the state of ND was a bit more open minded about public land use...

I'm definitely ready for spring!  although the 300 still needs a little freshening up, but I'll have that ready in a week or two.

Yes. Got the bikes in riding condition way too early this winter.  My big project yesterday was to install a phone charger and a ram ball. That lasted... 10 minutes.

Looks like a warming trend is coming in a few days.

Perfect.  Love it when a plan comes together!

DDSR has historically picked the Fathers Day weekend so a lot of the guys get a free pass; the Fall ride dates have tended to float around a little more .....
