    Only bad things I have heard of This battery is some said they tested it to be 310, some said it melts the posts and the cables get hot as hell if the bike doesn’t start in 5-6 secs. That does point to high cca, so I suppose there is plenty of torq .

    Nobody you would know... not from the site and melting posts or cables is not really a battery problem, rather the rest of the system is not upto it.

    Just bought one tonight let’s see. I have been using Harley batteries for as long as I can remember and it’s usually a hard start in the morning

    Want to hear more about the "Throttle X 500" battery! _________

    Currently In the market for a new battery:

    My battery experience on Big Dog 2004 Chopper, S&S 107:
    "Harley battery" from the dealer lasts about a year with charger between rides. One year warranty, paid $129, gone thru two. I won't do that again, don't like dealing with this issue every year and getting stranded.

    "Tomioka TRB1500" (aka Braille, with different label) lasts about 2 years or 30 months with charger between rides and with two year warranty, paid $185. gone thru two and end of life on third. Tomioka has been best performer and best value for me, first one got me three years.

    --When the battery connections are anything but "VERY Snug"; they will melt the battery posts on a hard start up...

    I melted the neg post on my old battery assuming cause it was loose, when I put the Throttle X in I put blue Loctite on it and tightened the shit out of it. Havnt had any problems yet but don't have many miles on it.

    When I reinstalled my battery a couple weeks ago I also put blue loctite on terminal bolts, I check often but figured it couldn't hurt
