    Battery

    What is the best battery to use on these conversions? After the long ride yesterday (all the stops) the battery was having a hard time turning over the 4-Tech. Is there range for cranking amps that I should be looking for?

    Go with a odyssey PC-925, and get a good trickle charger. How's that for a old slow 2 smoke guy? You can also get different terminal configurations. Also I have a hookup in LA that has the best price and fast shipping. Contact the Dago.

    PC-925 is the 4-tec size and PC-625 is the yamaha size. They are dramatically different.

    I've been using the same small gel battery that was in my 2smoke for the past 35 hours without issue, has to be 4 years old by now. I'll try to find the model number tomorrow.

    Thanks Guys,

    I need to get one before I get stuck somewhere with any help. Another good reason to not ride my yourself.

    Yes and since the sperm whale is no longer part of the fleet the tow machine is gone.
