The bigger the battery the better, if it will fit. Every vehicle I have ever seen came with a battery that was marginal for it. If you replace the battery, get the biggest battery you can squeeze into it. Unfortunately that is not an option with many bikes. The Vulcan 750 seems to have a starter issue. Even when connected to a car battery, it will not turn over nearly as fast as I think it should. My EX500 turns over more than twice as fast. It sounds like the Vulcan starter is dragging, which is probably the cause of many of it's starting problem complaints. I have a Peterbilt battery in my Ford pickup. Jerry.
