Re: BRP battery

Valves? As I was pulling everything apart, the valves seemed like a good bet. New battery with same result, very slow to turn over.

While I'm waiting on that I will pull ...

Re: BRP battery

Also, a quality Li-Ion motorcycle battery is Antigravity. I believe they are made on US soil. The company stands behind their product and they are priced similarly to Shorai batteries. The one in my dirt bike even has "restart" technology where if you discharge it completely, there's essentially a ...

Re: BRP battery

Thanks. I'll jump it to see if it spins faster. If it still spins slow. Starter?

I'm working on my Son's BRP and he's always had issues with the thing slow cranking, it usually fires. But it sounds like it's killing the battery just trying to turn over. It as a newish agm battery, but I think it's time for a new one. Do big thumpers usually turn over slow? The current battery is...
