A well-grounded approach

Recommended Posts

The old Odd-I-See has taken a dump. No amount of amperage, Young Frankenstein electrical theatrics or pleading can  bring it back. Therefore, A Yuasa YTX15L-BS has taken up residence. Got the fresh bottle of DeoxIT out and gave the veritable plethora of cable terminals an alcohol bath, followed by a bronze brush scrub-up. Then Deoxed both sides of everything.  You know how those ground problems can be so vexing. While giving the terminals some love, I noted that someone, somewhere was a little generous with the insulation. Funny that it was the ground side, since everything red is hanging out in the open, waiting for a shorter than usual circuit. Gave it a trim and now all cables seat solidly.

I spent about 10 minutes looking at various threads about batteries- then just went to the local and got the stock Yuasa as well.  battery tech has improved in 20 years, but.. if it works it works.

The Yuasa 'made in USA' are, i believe, made in the same factory as Hawker Odyssey's.

My 2008 Stelvio's day one factory original Yuasa battery was still perfect when i sold the bike last year, no special treatment, no trickle charger just luck!
