couple quick questions

ok first off, what is the most recommended MF-AGM battery?

most recommended voltage meter

and if your bike no longer has the goats belly, (mine has jardine pipes i believe) would the R/R still be recommended to be relocated? i pretty much never drive at low speeds (i.e. parade speeds as once mentioned)

and also kinda dumb question, what is the socket size needed for the spark plugs on this bike? none of my spark plug sockets fit it, and haven't had a chance to bring home any sockets from work to try

that is all for now

thanks in advance!

Get a Deka or Big Crank battery, they are made by she same company.

Use a 2" marine voltmeter with an Autometer 2203 mounting cup or the Kuryakyn led voltmeter.

If the exhaust crosses under the R/R I would relocate it.

18mm for the plugs.

The above sounds good to me... However I did get the YUASA battery YTX14AHL-BS from me local Kaw. dealer as my old battery had gone south after my lil spill... It was $80... Which I think is not bad, considering if something is or does go amiss I can return it locally and not have to mess with shipping it back to someone somewhere, and hastle with them by phone or internet, and I do try to support my local dealer when I can as he does me pretty good on prices & support...
Have a good one...Old Dog...
