New battery improves performance?

Post  allambiejohn on Wed 11 Oct 2017, 1:12 pm

So last week my battery failed on me and I had to fit a new one.  Is it my imagination or is my bike now accelerating far better than it did before ? Previously it took quite a lot of throttle to lift the front wheel, since the new battery this is happens relatively easily! Anyone else had a similar experience?

If the old battery was loading down the alternator, it could have been drawing/loading down the power that the ignition system needed, subsequently the coil voltage could be down a tad and therefore not giving optimum spark.  That might explain an "improvement" after the new battery was installed  Shocked
