I said I was going to leave the S'wing electrics stock, well one small mod was made by adding a pig tail Battery Tender cable Shocked Shocked  today I paid Sad  if you are thinking shorted no, think looong. Note to self when re installing the cable use the star style locking washers because there is just enough vibration to loosen those connections without them. End result was while cruising at 50 mph it was like turning the key off then back on, rather unnerving I'll say. Glad I was boonie riding and not on a big road.

When my battery went dead on me, and it did die, I put in a Battery Tender Lithium Ion battery. It's a lot smaller but comes with enough dense foam self-stick pads to fill in the empty space in the battery compartment. It weighs about 1.75 LBS compared to about 8.5 for my old gel cell battery. Another nice thing is that it comes with two positive and two negative "posts" so hooking up accessories is no problem. I've had this in my SWing now for about a month or two and it works great. They say it's not all that good in COLD weather but who rides when it's below freezing? Not me that's for sure. I also have to Battery Tender Jr. pigtails on it with no problems yet. And it's 240 CCA. I also put one in my 1974 Honda CB750 and it works great there too. Hope this helps someone. Oh, and those two little baggies on the right in the second photo are 4 battery cable bolts. It came with these also. Hopefully this is my last edit. It has a 3 year warranty.

Here are a couple of pics of the old and new.
