Thanks for the advice Husabutt. I will check those things you recommended and get another battery. I should be good with my charger though.
Taffy. Send me one of your modified decomp springs and what do you mean my valves won't be seating well? Do I just need to adjust them or go deeper? Thanks guys for all your help I really appreciate it.

Husabutt, you mentioned a good charger earlier. What would you recommend? I looked at mine and it is just a battery charger and does not maintain or test. It is an old car battery charger with manual shutoff so if I left it on there it would probably ruin my battery. Thanks

Tecmate ? Optimate 5 VoltMatic

If you want to save a little money you can sometimes find a Optimate 3 (older model) on ebay or Amazon.

You will need this type of charger to fully charge (and maintain) your new YTZ7S. Before you install the battery be sure to fully charge it as these batteries are purported to have a bit of battery memory and if they are not fully charged the first time it may never accept a 100% charge thereafter.

Always keep the charger plugged in when you are not riding or you will be spending all of your disposable income on batteries for your Berg.

You may want to also get the quick connect that attaches to the battery terminals for easy connecting.

Its easy enough though to just attach the charger positive lead to the positive battery terminal and the negative lead to the bolt on the starter bracket.

The one I just ordered comes with that quick connect so I can leave it on the bike and just plug in the charger. Thanks for the info. You have been a great help.
