I'm guessing you have a hi torque starter. Would you be able to have the starters amp draw tested when cranking? I know most auto parts places would test a vehicle for free. Autozone comes to mind.

Then you would know what kinda actual amp draw your looking at. See if it's in range with the starters manufactures value. Not a starters windings heating up and going bad. Then go by the battery CCA you need.

Hey Rob!

I know Dave tried a Ballistic when they first came out to Drag Specialties and he sent it back.

Oh, There you are. Haven't seen you around lately. I spoke to Eric at Antigravity on Monday. I ordered one of their 720 CCA batteries. I hope to have it by Friday. I will give some feedback. He gave me a good discount, so I figured what the hell, I spent over $400.00 for a freakin' LED headlamp bulb. Why stop now?

I just got the 600 amp battery from Antigravity for $349, I also bought a 1.7 Allballs starter and a set of 2ga cables. Iam looking to have my bike start when it want it to. Thats all, I dont think thats asking for to much. I feel ya about the Embarrassment of your hotrod not starting, Sucks!!

Update. I installed the 720 cca battery and made up my own set of one gauge cables. I also replaced my tired starter drive, and made some modifications to my starting tables, with help from Stroker and Rbabos. The bike starts great when hot now, and actually better than when it's cold. These batteries need to be woken up a little. I turn on my headlight for a minute or so, before cold starts now. The bike is also more nimble in the handling dept., thanks to the 14# weight loss.

It is 720 CCA, and it doesn't come cheap! $$$ Oh, and sorry about that Dan.

Did not read all the posts.... New to forum... I am thinking of a Lithium battery myself. Let me know what you did and if you had an answer for the charging issue. That is a question of mine also.

I've had an antigravity battery on my bike for six months. Have a lithium charger also. Have used the charger twice. The engine starts at the first hit of the button. Have the one with 600 CCA. Pricey = Yes. Worth it = He__ yes!! Light weight, smaller size, major improvement.

They are based on A123 cells. You can buy the cells for 8-10 bucks each, you can build your own 20 cell for around 200 bucks. you will have to get creative with a housing though. These are the same batteries as in dewalt lithium ion battery pack you could get a few 12 volt packs and wire them in parallel....LOL I have seen it work.
