    My 2000 Dyna doesn't like to start in weather below 50. I think my battery is a little weak. I boosted it yesterday with a power pack, what a pain. Any ideas on how to better boost or charge this model?
    Or does someone down south want a room mate?

    You can get them in a number of places, usually cheaper than the HD dealer that sells the same unit.

    Check out the links in that post if you can't get it locally.

    Nope. Harley Davidson does not make batteries or battery chargers. If you want a heavy duty battery that is gonna last, check these out:

    ODYSSEY Batteries

    Funny thing is the local dealer sells the battery tender repackaged in the HD packaging here.

    Sure! I have room for your bike in the garage. But no room in the house.. So, you'll have to sleep in a tent in the yard....

    But your ride will be safe and comfortable...

    That sounds great. I have a 2000 with the original batterie. It still cranks in warm weather. I can't see how I could install a batterie tender? There is no room under the cover.

    It's only the pigtail (wire) that stays with the bike connected to the battery. The rest of the unit is about the size as a pack of cigarettes that plugs into the wall.
