Well I finally got my Deka AGM battery Tuesday, Spockster. I tested it out of the box, and it showed 12.7V. I installed into bike, and hooked up my battery tender for 24 hours. Once unhooked, battery showed 13.3V. I turned the key on, and it did seem to start much better. That is especially true once the 2nd cylinder got fuel and helped balance the engine load, LOL. I let it idle for about 10 minutes. If it weren't so cold and rainy lately here I'd take her for a ride to see if performance is improved. One thing I have always noticed, which I think is normal, is at idle, when out of direct sunlight(Garage) I can see the green Neutral light oh so very lightly flickering. If I touch the throttle at all, and raise RPM's, it stops and stays solid. I believe it is a normal thing, and am not worried, as it will get better voltage driving than idling. Just thought it worth a mention. Cant wait to try it out on the road. Especially being stuck in the house so much during this quarantine crap. At least I have little things to tinker with that don't stop me from riding when opportunity comes. I have brake pads on the way for the front and rear. The front are low, but I have a few mm's left so I haven't run them too far. I'll change the rear when I get some sort of sign it's time, since 70+ percent of the braking is from the front. On another note I have to say this is a really great forum. The only way I could see it being better, was if it was a group of people hanging in a garage, with a keg in the corner, lol. That way, we could all meet, discuss, and even show one another what key things are, and how it all works, etc. Some brilliant advice here, and some of it I cant even wrap my head around just yet. I always have been mechanical. Electrical, I can deal with, but schematics get a bit complicated for me, unless I am just tracing a colored wire, etc. In real life, I have 32 years of producing acrylic sheet, aka Plexiglass. I am sure you have been seeing a lot of that lately! So, when it comes to plastic, I know most all, electrics, not so much, but always willing to try, but don't want to have to deal with this stator issue! Cheers to you, and the rest of this great forum!
