With batteries, there are powerful, light, and cheap. You only get to pick two.

I'm having a hard time understanding why you didn't put the proper size battery in it.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

cause im poorer than oklahoma dirt. recovering from massive heart attack , cant work, denied disability, yada yada. $31 out the door with return policy! this is why i asked questions aboutr starter current draw.



by the time i am finished getting this bike in shape to ride, i will get regular social security and can afford the "correct " battery. so consider this as a test piece. it will also double as a battery to go in another project, i stuffed the drivetrain of a off road 150cc kart up under a old golf cart.

police dont mess with geriatrics running the back roads on a golf cart.

here in Oologah, Oklahoma it has to run faster than 22 mph to require a license plate.


however, if on pavement, you better have running and stop lights.


and with a 36 volt battery bank in my golf cart, i just run on the grass until I get to the post office
