The battery on my 520RS is toast, it only holds 4 volts and I still can't reliably kick start this bike. Since this bike was new this battery has been junk, it's still under warranty but I'm just going to upgrade now and save future headaches. What batteries are you guys running? Thanks!
Product Spotlight: Alpinestars Tech 7 Boots These days expensive protective equipment saturate the market, but Alpinestars has a motocross boot that offers high dollar protection with high end quality at the average man’s price. I have worn the Sidi Crossfire 2, Garne SG-10, SG-12, and Alpinestars Tech 10 boots. While these top-line boots all share impressive features my favorite is the Alpinestars Tech 7, with the low retail price of $349. Once Western Power Sports became a distributor for Alpinestars I immediately tested the Tech 10 against the Tech 7 boots. My initial thought was I would prefer the highest priced boot, the Tech 10. While this boot is amazing, I felt like I could literally jump off the roof and have no ankle injuries (not recommended), I struggled with the lack of flexibility. I am 6’4” and have suffered many foot and ankle injuries throughout the years, the most recent was a ruptured Achilles’ tendon. I tend to look for boots that offer support and protection, yet allow me the freedom to ride comfortably and the Tech 7 meets this criteria. If I was riding AMA Supercross I would opt for the Tech 10, but for me and my Vet B riding level the Tech 7 is heaven on my feet! Look for both the Tech 7 and Tech 10 boots available in the TT store. https://www.thumpertalk.com/shop/cart.php?m=search_results&c=&catID=4443&v=&id=&venID=&attrList=&manuf=1602&priceFilter=&sortBy=PriceHiLo&search=Tech+7&sort=5&asc=desc&page=2 KEY FEATURES • New dual compound sole is seamlessly integrated into the base structure for superior durability and features high performing rubber grip patterning and enhanced feel.

Hi I am tired of having to warm up the battery and grinding the battery before the bike starts. (and when really cold outside I have to bump start it down a big hill) What battery could I buy instead of the tired OEM battery? Do anyone now what CCA the stock battery got? I read it was about 70cca on the older ktms but hasnt seen anything about the 2017 bike. Also saw someone mention the WPS FEATHERWEIGHT LITHIUM BATTERY 130 CCA as a better option than OEM. Is the WPS a good choice and does it fit in the stock battery boot? Is 130CCA enough to start the bike when it is about freezing point outside?
