If you get a new one, get a maintenance free, absorbed glass mat battery. They have more CCAs, won't leak battery acid on your frame and electronics, and last longer. If you haven't already put fresh gas in it, do so. Add 6-8 ounces of Sea Foam to the first couple of tanks to help clean any carb deposits. Change the oil too, and lube the drive splines with Honda Moly 60 if you don't know when they were lubed last. Find find a post by member fergy and look in his signature for the spline lube procedure. Look in the Vulcan Verses section of the forum and OlHossCanada's signature for additional tips/suggestions.
