Hello all for some reason my password isn't working(pan58head) I have been trouble with starting my pan lately(seems like I kick for ever.I figured it was just being her moody self). We'll went out yesterday and clicked the switch no headlight. I grabed a volt meter and the battery had 9 volts. I think its time to buy another one. I"m using a small gel battery from ebay(12volt). The problem is it seems to never to have had enought juice. I leave the headlight on without it running for maybe 5 minutes and the battery is dead. I did a search and see that some are using the Ytz14s stood on its side. I'm looking for some feedback Buy the way pan is 12volt cycle electric generator with the built in reg, mallory dist. Thanks in advance Bob

Get the Yuasa YZT14S and you won't have any problems.
