I installed this battery in September of 2008. Only problem I had was a couple years ago after riding at slower speeds through Glacier NP returning to MN from OR rally - I'd left my heated grips on and did a lot of stops & starts to take pictures. When I'd exited the park and stopped for fuel, battery wasn't dead but bike cranked s l o w but started.
Planning a trip to CA and battery held charge on a tender throughout the winter. Is there a way to diagnose battery before replacing it? Also, I carry a jumper cable that plugs into my Aux Power socket - how difficult is it to jumper start this bike? I'd hate to have to push it and bump start it.
