1968 BS 350 GTR Battery
« on: August 16, 2022, 09:18:37 AM »
I've looking for information on what size and type of battery to install in my 1968 350 GTR.  Anyone had any positive or negative experiences with any particular manufacturer?  Thanks

Motobatt MB5U fits nicely and works very well

I use capacitors in my Kaw triples instead of a batt.
 Only drawback is the lights won't work unless it's running.
 It will hold a charge for about a day or two and you can charge it
 in a minute with a batt charger but you don't need to.
A cap also takes much more abuse than a batt and 2-strokes
 are tough on batts.
You may need to wrap it in foam to make it snug.
I used a can koozie turned inside out.

50k mfd 16 volt computer grade cap.
 They run about $40.
