Re: New to me LT
On my 07 LT, the Metzeler 880s are not radials. But I like them.
I just put an Odyssey PC-680 in. So far, so good. The PC-680 is 3/8ths of an inch less tall than the OEM BWM EXIDY that they come with, so you may need to find something around the size of trim boards, or some slightly less then half inch filler material to make the fit tight.
Keep in mind what as sturdy and resilient that dry cell PC-680 is, even Odyssey admits that parasitic drain from the bikes never quite off comm system and other farkles will pull it down.
All though my favorite way is to park it in the day time with they key turned to Park, so the lights are on. I have only done that fatally once and it took over 90 minutes of charging to get the batter up to where the starter would run.
