    some use the Harley battery, some use the Braille, some use others. just make sure you have 350+ CCA and you keep it on a tender when you are not riding. (personally, i use Braille)

    I use this HD battery, 65989-97C

    I’ve used those batteries in all my Big Dogs with excellent results, (Two K9’s and my Ridgeback). It’s never given a single issue. Don’t forget to put any battery on a tender with a stock EHC.

    We all know we can get a bad battery no matter the brand. That being said I also have a Braille that hit the 6 year mark for me in August. It is still doing it's job, when it does die no doubt I will get another Braille. :yesnod:

    Last two batteries were HD, I have had a Braille for about a year now, it's good. Would like to try the ThrottleX .
