From LordSmoke's 30 Nov 2011 post :
"On a longer trip, the Wee start running roughly at idle speeds which I finally surmised was due to the weak batter not being able to handle the charge at low RPMs. So, I replace it with the MotoBatt and that problem went away."
I've noticed this "rough / weak running" a couple times lately with my '07 Wee (which I bought used very early this year when it had less than 6,000 miles). Only happens at or near idle speeds. The bike sounds as though it's going to die (never has) and doesn't respond well to throttle application for a few seconds. The bike has less than 12,000 miles on it and runs super otherwise. Of course I'm beginning to wonder about the battery.
1. Has anyone else experienced this and did a battery-replacement fix the problem ?
2. How do I determine if the battery in my Wee is the original one for this bike ? (dates, code numbers, etc)
3. What kind (brand, "model", etc) battery would have been original to these bikes?
