My understanding of the new li-ion type batteries is that they don't fare well at all with when used with older technology charging components. Match your battery to your charging system and also to the amount of time that you are willing to spend maintaining the battery.

I have had a lithium-ion battery in my "48 for almost 2 years now in the stock location with no issues and even using the low voltage Cycle Electric generator due to having the small lead acid battery at first.The beauty is the battery doesn't lose the charge, is very light and compact and has no vent hose just in case there was acid drippage. My bike is ridden most every week but from time to time it has had to set for 2-3 weeks yet still starts first kick. With lead acid, if the battery would get low I could always tell as she would not light on the first kick. Just some more input !!

Panhead george,

What brand and size of battery are you running with the CE low output generator?

Old Wrench I will get that info tonight and get back to you. I believe they only have one low output for the small 12 volt batteries but I will check.

A friend bought the antigravity jump starter to carry on his Ducati after the dealer demoed one for him. You could just about fit it in your pocket. He started his Diesel pick up with it. You gotta watch the video, if my buddy hadn't told me about it I wouldn't believe it. Maybe it could be jury rigged to use for 6 volt.

Old Wrench, Listed below is the gen I have from Cycle Electric but I have not gotten home to identify the battery yet. But they sell them for late model electric start KTM dirt bikes. It is all about weight on those. They to have a charging system also to handle there Halogen light, horn, Ignition etc. It is Black and Orange though so it has to be good Right?? =)

DGV-5000L 12 volt charging system. Use on (1936-1964) 6 volt conversion when using small 12 volt battery in 6 volt oil tank, kick only.[/color]

Thanks to all for the suggestions.

I found this AGM battery at Napa and it looks like it will work fine.

If you are looking for an AGM battery with a better warranty and more reserve capacity that will still fit in the panhead oil tank -

I use a 7AH YUASA gel cell in my two Pans and one in my Knuckle. The Pans have cycle electrics gens W/regulators and the Knuckle has an alternator. I bought TWO of these batteries for $18....and that included a charger for them! Over the last 10yrs,I've NEVER had a battery failure! And that includes rides to Sturgis.(long distance) (I position them in the box so there will be airflow around them)I recently bought a USA Yuasa from a company that specializes in moblie scooters. GREAT performance from all of them,I've never replaced one yet!.....and cheap!....walt...tulsa,ok
