      Thank you K-moe for the info on the AGM battery wiring....others on this site said just hook it up directly to a 12 volt source on the solenoid, but I knew that you would have the correct answer to my question. Your wealth of information is always greatly appreciated. Take care, Bruce

        They are also correct. Just hooking it to +12 volts will turn the light out. What that won't do is give any warning if the battery voltage drops. I also saw in you thread a link to the thread that includes the method that I usually link to. Despite appearances, I'm not the only person on here that knows stuff. In fact, many of the people on here taught me a fair amount.

      Hi K-moe, its been awhile since I've posted; just want to double check something utilizing your expertise. I have 1982 xj750rj Seca with a AGM battery. Where can I connect the red/white wire that usually goes to the cell sensor on a wet cell battery so the BATT warning stays off?
      1. k-moe

        Connect it to the positive battey terminal, or the positive lead from tne battery at the starter solenoid, with a 5.6 K Ohm resistor in line with the wire.

      HI.i just joined this group. you guys are really cool. i have an 83 maxim. it has the old clips bars. i want to replace them but i cant get the old ones off. i have removed the nut and washer under the bars and the alen screw but the circles on the top won't allow me to remove the bars. feeling like they want to come off but cant remove them. I've broken two screwdrivers trying to pry the washer looking things off.

      Hi Moe, I have just got my hands on that 750rl and the shocks are sacked. The stock length is under 12" and thoughts on a good replacement. Have progressive on my 650rjc but have been looking at SBS with the piggyback reservoir

        K-moe you seem like a rational guy. I'm in Santa Fe Maybe not too far from you,if you are in the desert. Anyhow, I'm trying to get info on both shipping a bike from a seller to myself and the best,most secure method of sending money to a seller,getting the bike I'm paying for etc, Any threads posted about these topics ? Or what would be the best
        forum to start a thread askin the same Qyestions ?

        My advice is to either use Paypal, or use an escrow service. Most banks can provide that service. I'd start a thread to ask about shipping. I have only shipped a bike once.
