Cheers mate, the Ballistic is a 4cell 135cca. The charging system could not keep it full if I ran the stock headlight. I do like it but I am not sure that I would get another. You are meant to charge them using the specific charger to charge each cell properly. The way I see it my bike is not going to do that so why buy theirs. Just use the standard trickle charger and you should be right. Don't leave it on for too long as you can overcharge and destroy them fairly easy. I have been thinking of getting an antigrav for my new bike.

I haven't seen the anti grav yet, I was checkin out the 8cell ballistics on ebay.  im trying to decide tonite if I buy a used rectifier for $25 or a new aftermarket one for $45, any ideas?   I will be one happy customer if that new part lets me shut my bike off without a jumpstart ;D

yeah im sorry steve   I couldn't figure out how to start a thread at first (long time reader, first time poster).  I would like to say you have a wicked sweet bike & I hope mine ends up half as cool as yours.  I will try to remove my questions

It's a drag that the license plate is so huge in the UK, though it looks like you get to customize the text around the edge?
