The bike looks so much better (to me) now with the battery, the bracket & the cover gone & I never have to fight with those bleedin' rubber straps or that frigging lock again.
. . Got pics???
Can't help with the forum procedure, but provided your hardware is compatible I can recommend Lubuntu Linux as a cure for the MS Blues! I have still got Windows 7 on this PC but I rarely use it. The forced shut down for updates when I used XP sticks in my memory as being a particular pain.Regards,Adrian

This may be a little late, but I have been researching using a Lithium Iron Battery made by Shorai. The response I got when I asked them about my 2008 Re was use a LFX14L5-BS12, SHORAI LFX Lithium-Iron Powersports battery, 14Ah PbEq 12V eq, "L" polarity, Case Type 5 Length 5.28" Width 3.15" Height 6.30", Cranking CCA (A): 210. $159.95
ION. Lithium ION. Why in the world does this bike need a $160.00 battery? Is it going to the moon? Mongolia? Antarctica? I don't get it. Just because it's there? Like 80 inch television screens? Sorry. I just don't get it. What's next? A Noo Kyu Ler powered battery?
Sorry dude, but it's advertised as Shorai Lithium IRON battery. I know that there are Lithium Ion batteries also. There are folks on this site that spend a lot of money on rebuilding the engines on this site. I would spend extra bucks on a battery if I could mount it sideways in a small place. Do some reading on this battery before criticizing.
Hey, quick question for all that have tried this-- am I going to have problems overdrawing the battery if I'm running the 7" headlight and bullet signals? I'm pretty sure mine is the deluxe model.-RP
The AVL's alternator produces 196W of power. I use a 55/60W halogen and it just runs fine.As long as the battery gets enough charge, no problem whatsoever.
Just for shit & giggles while I was on a ride today I tried the electric start with the little battery at one of my stops. Worked just fine. Turned 901.6 - looks like I'll make my 1,000 before the snow flies. Didn't think I would. And it's running amazingly well.
