    Nothing like a new battery

    So God bless Motobatt, DeCosse, and Power Commander. I left the Rocket outside the other night, it wasn't supposed to rain until real late morning. My wife came in and woke me up, your headlights are on. I got dressed, went out, I'm standing in the garage, it's pouring like it only can in...

    Yuasa GYZ20HL battery?

    Anyone ever use the Yuasa GYZ20HL battery? It is only a couple of bucks more than the YTX20HL-BS and has 320 CCA vz 310 CCA with higher amp hour rating 20A vs 18A? Seems to have a little more power.
