Thoughts on this battery

Had my current battery for under a year. Ran great all year until the other night. Bike sat NOT on a tender(stupid me) for maybe a little over a month. New England weather has been a little chilly as of late. Had to jump it to get it going for a Halloween ride I did, Ran great but tried to get it going and DEAD in about 40 degree weather. Ran a charge overnight and it said its charged. Still wont spin the engine. Havent put a load tester on it yet but im thinking the battery may be junk now. What do ya think?

I had all kinds of battery troubles until I bought an anti gravity battery.

+1 for the anti gravity battery. I know they're expensive but not replacing them every few years definitely makes up for the price. I haven't put mine on a charger since I bought it over 2 years ago and it still starts my 96" stroker motor with ease. Sits for 5 months every winter without charging, that's impressive!

I know two guys who swear by Antigravity batteries and have never had an issue. I use HD batteries from the dealership in all 4 of my bikes, I've replaced the one in my FLH twice now but only because they were 6 years old and I'm not gonna take any chances. After I take the 6 year old battery out I use it in my shop for powering up things when I need an alternate power source. The HD batteries are made by Deka on a special line and go through a very stringent set quality controls...I have a buddy who works on that line at East Penn Manufacturing.

Try getting an Optimate 3 or equivalent battery tender. This particular model has a desuflating cycle on it which can extend the life of batteries and sometimes recuperate seemingly dead batteries. I have one charger and put it on each of my three bikes weekly for a few days at a time. I even use it on my lawn tractor. It has been a great investment for me
