The big question is what "superior" battery should I buy and will that mysterious voltage drain ruin even the best battery? :?BPHORSEGUY said:I'm pretty sure the sensor is cheaper then the battery and quicker to replace, if it doesn't work at least you'll have a spare!
It is possible on some 961’s for the battery to hold charge for an extended period, had mine in storage resently for one month with no battery tender and it fired up no problem. Battery was low but had enough juice to start. Battery is a fairly new cheap lead acid type.
