    Were your results positive or negative?

    Nope
    Try the easy riders Barstow battery fix?
    When the electra-glide came into play, battery tech was weak.
    Dead electric legs were abundant.
    We would drain the acid into a clean container, rinse out the trash from the battery case, refill thru a pair of stockings to filter the gunk.
    This usually revived enough power flow to git ya going for a while.

    Or
    Go buy some batteries...
    Lasts a LOT longer.

    Had an old timer tell me about aspirin I. A battery to Revive it I. Only done it once on a tractor battery that froze and it worked great I put 1/4 tab in each cell topped off with distilled water let it sit over night and put the slow charge to it
