Ordered the Antigravity Battery Tracker to monitor my charging system. Just measuring resting voltage don't tell much. Probably will get the battery and the Lithium Monitor and charger. I have killed two batteries with careless discharge. Once with the headlamp, once with the GPS. The Yuasa is a great battery but discharging it kills it.

Best tip since pre-loading the shifter, Exedra Max for rear tyre aaaand the Progressive 444s. Thanks.

That is the main problem with your standard batteries. If you are unfortunate to get them into a state of 'deep' discharge, the internals warp/buckle/distort and it's game over. A bsttery tender does help to eleviate and prevent this scenario, but poor memory or forgetting to turn off the lights, not so much 👍👍

Here you go Rick, i went with the HD battery, but the auto restart atx-20 is a good feature because mine the hd-20 goes into safe mode when volts reach a limit and shuts off, the atx-20 restart if you forget som battery goes to a limit, shuts down but saves enough to start the bike with the push of a button.

Pricy but getting stuck without power is going to cost. Been there and done that, twice. I understand the HD 20 comes with the re-start built in. Is that so? The ATX 20 should be OK for me. I have no stereo. Only the GPS. Probably the charger is worth it to protect the battery further. Have a NUCO that claims it is good for Lithium batteries but huuummm?

The nuco should be fine, the atx-20 has the restart, i would like to have that feature
