Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Today I switched out a bad battery. The battery that powers my brake light doesn't always seem to work very well. I charge it, and a few days later it seems to go dead again. I use 7.2v nicad batteries for my headlight and brake light. I was at Radio Shack a few days ago, and saw battery/charger combo packs on clearance for $5, so I got one and installed it today. The new battery seems to work just fine. I tested the old battery with my multimeter, and its reading 7.42v, but when I test it with a spare bulb, it barely lights up. Bad cell, maybe? Don't know, but either way the new battery is reading over 8v and lights up my brake light just fine.
