Yeah I guess with all the problems they were having with malware they locked the site down
"THE AMAZING "UNDERWATER" PC-680 ODYSSEY BATTERY
Some here may recall that last November my house burned to the ground -- and as it turned out, my 'Wing not only melted but was submerged in a couple of feet of firefighters' water. Just before the salvage company [sent by Progressive insurance company] came to pick up the bike, I removed anything that seemed intact, for my next GL1200
The obvious extras were the two sets (driver + passenger) of Markland foot boards, heel-toe shifter, and highway boards.
As an afterthought, just minutes before the salvage guy arrived, I removed the PC-680 ODYSSEY BATTERY that had been through the intense heat of a fire, under water, and was now dead as a door nail (according to my trusty volt meter). Turning it upside down (NOT recommended with a conventional battery !) water came spilling out of its outer jacket. Still I figured, what the heck it was only two years old and still a pup.
So I hooked it up (in my hotel room
) to a Schumbacher XC10, 10-AMP charger [that has different settings for different types of batteries] set to 2 amps (for a slow recharge), and forgot about it for nearly a week. Although at first ALL the charger's lights were flashing (showing maximum charging rate -- no surprise there), after a day or two it settled down seeming to be fully charged. I was VERY skeptical that this battery will EVER be normal again. But then I did THE test.
After it was fully charged according to the volt meter (something above 12 volts, closer to 13), I let it stand and day after day checked the voltage. That rascal held the 12-plus volt charge for over one week, now going on two. Heck, I'm putting that PC-680 ODYSSEY in my "new" Aspy, soon as I get my hands on the bike !
I always swear by Odyssey batteries, as opposed to swearing at Other makes. I have one in my Yamaha Virago for 7 years now, and that bike sits outdoors under a cover in all weather when not being ridden.
