    I did my own battery voltage test.

    This battery failed twice.

    I just took it off the charger.
    Key was left on to remove the surface charge.
    Pushed starter button. Each drop is a compression stroke.

    Ambient temp 23*f. 20W50 dino.
    I plead guilty David; I am a "hack". I am the hack who will buy the battery and be riding while others are posting for days on an internet web site as the bike sits in the garage.

    I am one of those who does not need to "understand" the problem in order to fix it.
