As a new RE owner, I've been going over the CMW Online Catalogue with great interest. There is a gizmo called a "Bayer Bransden Powerbox- battery eliminator". Where I'm living batteries have a short life and are quite expensive. Has anyone had experience with a no-battery setup? Might make life simpler, but what is the downside, besides maybe lights going dim when not at full revs or no light when engine isn't running? Well most small outboard engines run without battery, why not an Enfield? At least one without a starter motor.
Tonga, South Pacific is my home. Not many rules here, to be sure. Amazing to have lived so long ignoring most rules, but as to the battery, there is undoubtedly virtue to having your tail light remain on when the engine conks out. Sorry though, I forget that this is an American site and should restrict myself to topics of value there. Notice in the topics I've read that Infield owners do their share of ignoring rules when it comes to getting the proper thump from their bikes. Out goes the mandated exhaust restrictions (and probably the catalytic converters?), do away with lean burn and back to the proper format goes the bike that was mandated to follow the rules. Shouldn't there be a proper dose of larceny going together with any true bike rider?Washington is an old stomping ground of mine - thanks, Larry
