    Thank you Randy....Seems like a simple question for a 1/4 million dollar machine !
    I appreciate your time and response.
    I guess I'm confused as to why a dealer and a factory rep are naive on what has been a real problem,
    and what is the "fix".
    Perhaps the problem of poor starting capacity was fixed via the new Hartzell starter.
    But it leaves question as to why not use. $108.00 battery (Odyssey) with superior performance for
    a pound or two...compared to some motor bike battery?

    just dying to know the tech facts...

    thank You

    Steve

    The stock battery is a Power Sonic PTX14-BS which is a 12 AH sealed lead/acid battery. Do a search on "battery" and you should get quite a bit of info. Please feel free to give me a ring for a more in-depth discussion on batteries and starting, 509-248-9491.

    do you have any experience with trickle charges on this battery? During periods of inactivity (as mine is right now; as you might recall... ) I bought a charger, and my CarbonCub facility hooked up a quick connect under the seat, so I can keep a trickle charge on it..... Thoughts?

    Thx, Rick

    And might the BatteryMinder model 12248 still be good for the stock battery?

    I bet you can try Panasonic. The Panasonic Advanced Individual NiMH Battery Charger is the best pick for most people that want reliable charging without much fuss. Should you need it fixed, try out Hialeah Tow Truck experts for your convenience.
