Noob here... :mrgreen:

Finally got my CL175 running a while back and on my first lap around the block the headlight cutout on me at dusk :confused: luckily I wasn't too far from home so I was able to get back without issue.

It has sat for 2 months now and while I left the battery on a tender and refilled the fluid with distilled water, the battery seems to show between 11-12 volts, in which case I need to replace right?

I'd like a smaller battery, does anyone have any suggestions on what works? Also the OEM electric start doesn't work so it seems I'll have to kick over the bike 100 times to get it to start when it is warm outside... almost like the kickstart lever is not "catching"

Any help much appreciated. Thanks

Close to home isn't too bad, I had my high and low beams go out at dusk 39 miles from home at the tail end of a 350+ mile day of back roads a couple summers back. It was surprisingly easy riding without it, and I was really lucky....
