Two Batteries idea
Looking around in basement, looking for a chainsaw I misplaced, found a like new Odyssey PC680 battery bought less than a month after I bought the one that is in our 1997 GL1500 Trike. I had almost forgotten it, I had bought it for a bike that I no longer own, so I got to thinking, build a light weight box and put it in the trunk, place it on a disconnect, and wire it with same type ring terminals. Run POS side straight to terminal on solenoid as OEM, only use it's own ring terminal. Wire NEG side to a battery disconnect that is handy, then to good ground. Comp-u-Fire would easily charge both if left connected.
It'll do me more good having it if needed than sitting on a shelf gathering dust. The PC680 is not heavy, it is AGM, and this is the same trike that lived off a single PC680 from 2004 until 2016 …. and that one left here with the bike. Be like carrying my own jump.
PS, I found my chainsaw I was looking for too! Don't know why I stashed it there where I found it though.
