Hey guys i have a 07 big dog k9 and i think it needs a battery replaced. when i try to start the bike cold, after its been sitting 24 hours + the bike just doesn't have enough juice even though it always has a battery tender on it, but it fires right up every time if the bike has been ridden within 24 hours.
Curious what brand battery everyone is running and getting opinions on what kind to buy before i pull the trigger.
Thanks Karl

Im going to try the Duracell battery next. They come with a 2 yr warranty.
X2, that's what I put in mine a month or so ago, $112, I like the 2 yr warranty and most guys not using a tender don't have the stock ECH in them unless they are running them every couple days because of the memory.
I saw this morning where JP Cycles is selling a Lithium with a 2 yr warranty and it has 400CCA, you would have to call them for dimensions though

Just took out my original battery of 10 years still working and put in a Duracell , So far so good Duracell really starts nice View attachment 31338
10 years? Whoowza I bet anything would start better than that thing. Hell maybe even rubbing a few sticks together would start it faster..haha

That's a hell of a life out of a AGM! That's awesome

Sometimes ur compression releases stick. Also. My starter motor came loose from the starter houseing and caused the same problem once.

I bought a lithium battery. Not sure of CCA. But I know it's over 300. There are some rated at like 475 CCA. Do research online before you buy.
