Took a trip up to Detroit to walk around their Museum. About 20 miles outside of Toledo stopped at a rest stop for a break. The bike would not start took the covers off (I always carry a full set of tools). No fuses were blown but when I removed the Battery WOW!! First of all three of the caps had broken off and 2 of the cells were really empty metal exposed to the air. I figure in all the bad bouncy roads I had been on the water had been shaken out. This battery was not that old it was a brand called EverStart that I purchased from WalMart here in Indiana a few months ago. It had gotten so hot that the lead connectors on top of the battery had warped and I had to cut them to get my wires loose. Oh a nice Motorist gave me a jump and told me where the local Autozone was and they had 1 battery that would fit my bike. The new battery I put in seems to be of much better quality (Its a DuraLast) anyway just wanted to put this out I would stay away from the EverStart batteries.
