If you do not mind charging the second battery one a month

Just cut the lead from the starter relay to the starter and put the second battery inline
WAY less wiring

Mine went 4 months without charging, I finally charged it out of guilt

4 months without   so throw the second battery on a charger once a week, you will be fine
system was so trouble free that I would "forget" to charge it

BIKE TALK / UK International Bike Show (NEC)
« Last post by HOS on November 21, 2017, 02:38:27 AM »
Its the NEC bike show to anyone else.
The biggest bike show in the UK and all the big names of bikes and bike gear will be there.
Although I am not going this year again, Ive got mates going who will let me know whats there.
I don't think anyone is expecting a new Hayabusa to be there.
The new Kawasaki H2 SX SE will be there which a mate is probably going to purchase next year.
Anyway, here's the link....

I have my 24 volt system hooked up like the 2nd diagram. I found it on Schnitz Racing website. Have had no issues, as far as charging. I hard wired battery tender adapters, so I just plug them in when I want to charge the battery.

This weekend, from the starting line, I enjoyed watching Larry McBride
set the Top Speed record for Top Fuel motorcycles at 258mph
(and small change) at the Valdosta Ga finals.


Larry was visibly sideways for much of the first 1/8 mile,
but keep the throttle wide open.  With the front wheel high
in the air, and lots of "weight transfer" to the wheelie bars,
Larry wrestled the 1,000 pound monster to the finish.


I could be convinced that MotoGP guys have nothing
on these "car tire" boys in top fuel.


Larry also set the other end of the record several times.


He was the first guy to break into the 5.60's,
first at about 5.67, and then last night into the 5.61 zone.


It is highly unusual for top speeds to increase this quickly
 at this level of racing; likewise, decreasing the ET by
a full 0.100 second in one weekend is almost unheard of.


Imagine Usain Bolt dropping his 100 meter
sprint by 0.20 seconds in one meet.


This week, Larry will, with his grandchildren, celebrate his 60th birthday.


I have chatted with Larry about these speeds: 
He is fine with these ET's,
but would be happy to do them in the 240's........

GEN II BUSA / 2009 hayabusa power selector modes
« Last post by catfish1230 on November 19, 2017, 01:23:00 PM »
2009 hayabusa no longer shows selection mode on the display and thus cannot switch through the modes.  Any suggestions, comments on a fix would be greatly appreciated!
