Not being a batteryologist, this was a nice informative article, thanks for sharing.
Curious, was it after your accident on Packer John when you started having battery/electrical problems or was it already on going? Kinda wonder since reading this part of the article, "But it's still generally true that a motorycle that vibrates a lot will have a shorter battery life, because the plates themselves are more fragile than you might expect."
I suspect an accident such as yours, this could have occured, or possibly somethine else on the electrical system. How is the new battery doing since our Lucky Peak loop ride?
