Getting High Battery

I have a 2004 Redneck Getting High model. I was away awhile and had motor trouble Rev-Tech made it right by rebuilding the motor while i was away the bike has sit unstarted for about 9 months after my friend reinstalled the rebuilt motor and when i returned it wouldnt start so i went local (remote area) and bought a battery that didnt have enough CCA to fire it and because of clearence im wandering whats my best battery option? It had a Deka ETX9 120CCA on a tender before i left.

I have a DirtySouth dropseat frame. The battery goes under the tranny like yours. I couldn't find a high CCA that would fit the tray and ended up redoing the tray for a standard softail battery demension so it wouldn't bite me in the ass down the road. I had to shave the end of the 5th tranny mount but no big deal there. So I ended up with Deka battery I think 220CCA. Good luck finding high CCA for the stock tray brudda.

Yes, there's no way a Deka 120 CCA is going to work on a V-Twin, that's more for jet skis and scooters. I had similar battery space issues with my Santee frame when I didn't want to run a battery box equipped horseshoe oil tank. So I shopped for battery dimensions rather than battery CCAs and bought a custom use battery from Jireh. It's the smallest they sell (dimension wise) but it's rated at 230 CCAs. And it fit nicely behind my starter. Only problem was it didn't work, LOL. On a tender overnight it was fine, but sitting, even for a short time, while out riding and it would spin the motor just fine but have nothing left over to fire the motor. And my motor is a stock crate Evo.

So I bought a Big Boar Battery rated at 350 CCAs determined to make it fit somewhere on the bike even if I had to carry the damn thing around in a backpack! (But later thought the wires coming out of the backpack would make me look too much like a suicide bomber!)

Anyway, I did some creative welding, shaving, and filing and managed to make it fit behind the starter and my battery woes were over. But about a month later Big Boar came out with a brand new battery that's much smaller but still rated at a decent 300 CCAs (I wouldn't consider anything less than 270 CCAs) that may be easier for you to make work.

It's here:

It's not in the J&P Cycle Catalog yet (too new) but they probably have it and maybe cheaper than the $159.95 MSRP.

426 CCA, That must be one hell of a powerful battery for its size..
