Grrrrr!! Great day, had to get jumpstarted twice, and I'm not home yet... Battery is going tits-up on me. Called two shops, and right now $70.00 is more than I'm willing to spend. Back to the car for a while I suppose...

$70, seems a little steep, BTW, know of a reason that the battery is a problem? How old is it? Is you bike charging properly? Maybe just the battery is at the end of it's life, but there is no point screwing a new battery if there is something wrong.

Dave,
Schucks has them for around $60.00
charged and ready to go
do you have a battery tender?
No battery tender, just an old manual charger. It is an old battery by the looks of it, but I pulled it and charged it at 2 amps for 4 hours, it fired the bike right up twice. So i am gonna leave it in for a couple of days and see if it dies just sitting. If so I'll take it in and have it tested, see if it has a bad cell or what, also I suppose I need to break out the multi-meter and see if there are any obvious faults in the electrical system...boy I hate electrical diagnostics...oh well, gotta get it going...
