hawker odyessy batteries.....good and bad !
i fitted an odyessy battery to our BMW 1150 GS before leaving on the trip and it has been great at starting the bike....untill the other day when it would not. i decided not to send the battery back under warranty because it would cost too much ( now in IRAN ), so we pulled it apart to see the problem..... the + ve terminal is not attached too good to the plates and it had sheared off. i believe some may be ok and some a little dodgy, can we be prepared to take a chance in the middle of nowhere, i think not. we installed a new battery made in china and that would not start the bike in the cold mornings...so now we are installing a genuine BMW one. tomorrow we will see.
p.s the 1150 gs plus luggage is a heavy bike to push !
