wow, great post. This was a simple post for what i did, no harm no foul. but again, the "internet guys" are on the attack.
as for the battery. If you have a sealed object, that is completely full of a liquid; is it any less full when its on its side?
I think im going to go back to riding my...
Ummm define waist? So, for me waist is having a perfectly good full size battery laying around and going to go buy a YTX, just because the "Internet" said so. We must think before we type.
And saving 4 lbs on a 500lb bike, ha what a joke.
This is the single GREATEST change i have made to my '07. The 24 volt start conversion!
I had an "intermittent will not start (consistently)" issue; i changed everything in the starting system with limited success.
the 24 volt start conversion was simple, free (other than another...
Solved: Regulator/Rectifier was not happy when hot, voltage would drop from 14.5 to almost nothing the hotter it got.
so while riding for long periods, it would eventually be running off the battery alone, thus draining the battery.
I attribute the weird re-start after setting for a...

Wow, seriously? Looks only?
I guess its true, most Busa guys do only use their rear brakes. Im the complete opposite, i use my front for 99% of my braking.
anyway, to each his own.
Thanks for the info.
that depends. this depends on application pressure.
let me say this for clarification, your front will lock also. BUT with a heck of allot more pressure has to be applied to do this, especially on a larger bike.
