Battery question

Is there a different battery I could use to give me more cranking amps?

No, I don't have a built motor or anything like that. It's just so I can get the best/fastest cranking possible for XC racing. The series I'm gonna be racing (SCCS) uses a dead engine start. I'm thinking higher amps will help the engine to start faster. Am I right or wrong? If I'm right, what battery should I use?

roadkill,
One question. Does that type of racing require a "cold" engine? The reason I ask is if the engine is already warmed up starting is much easier and the engine is ready to go. No different battery is required. When not in use, always keep the machine on a Battery Tender. Oh, one other thing, don't freak out at the start of the race and try to have the throttle pressed before and during cranking. Probably will balk and quit. Just a thought.

The Antigravity 12-Cell

The Antigravity 12-cell is very small but capable of incredible starting power. This model is a perfect replacement for the typical 1000-1200cc street bikes. It offers extreme weight saving over stock lead acid batteries but has almost twice the cranking amps of the standard battery found in a 1000cc bikes.
  • 360 CCA
  • 12 Amp Hours (PbEq)
  • 4.25″ Long x 3.0″ Wide x 4.25″ Tall
  • 2.3 lbs
  • For Race vehicles up to 1600cc
  • For Street Motorcycles up to 1300cc



Been using these for a while,, i can hook u up

No Sid, just dead engine. Engines are well warmed up before pulling up to start line... then engines are shut down and set ready to start (key in on and kill switch set to on) Can be in neutral or in gear... left hand on helmet till flag falls. A good hole shot start can make a big difference because some of the courses are tight and technical and passing can prove difficult.

does your engine not start straight away then?
All i do is press the starter hot or cold, no throttle and it instantly fires up..(as long as its in neutral as hot engine in gear, huge clutch drag and longer/slower starting)

Hmmm, how to answer. It does start up right away... couple seconds. But, if I could shave off even a fraction of a second because the starter is turning faster, could make a big difference.

Loaded up to go ride tomorrow and practice my dead engine start along with a couple friends who do dead engine starts in this series to see how my start compares to theirs.
