    I have a DCT and carry a power supply just in case.
    Bought mine same time (Dec 31, 2014) and replaced the battery when it would not start. Had it checked, and it was dead. I did that back in October. Got 28,000 miles out of it. Worth it in my opinion. I would at least get it tested, see what is left.

    An even more mild Washington winter means I haven't needed to put the battery maintainer on yet.

    Rode to work four days this week. Our low was in the 40s (Fahrenheit) all four days so it wasn't too bad. I just wish that I didn't have long days every day this week and could have rode home in the nice upper 60s afternoons instead of the 50s when the sun went down.

    On the upside I came home so late on Thursday that I finally had a clear road to open it up a bit. I got to 98 before I backed off again. I was surprised that it seemed to drop off so quick over 95 since it will hit 90 so fast. It's not really a problem for me since it's rare that I even have a chance to open it up and that's not why I ride it anyway. I guess that it just shows how good this bike is as a commuter bike. It gets up to freeway speeds quickly but not too much past that, showing the benefit of it's low end torque.

    Walked past it in the garage while looking for the snow shovel.
    I'm not smart enough for a smart phone, so all I have is a dumb phone.
    GPS? Why would I want one of them? You can't get lost, there's no fun in that.

    Pretty much the same here - cold. No snow on the ground though. I walked past it carrying in the groceries.

    Yes, Geysers Road. Google Maps was the full route.

    It was warm enough to work in the garage, so I did a couple of tasks that had been waiting.
    I also made an appointment to get the sprockets and chain replaced, as the parts I ordered from Sprocket Center came in.

    1. I replaced the battery. 2015 DCT. It gets hot here, which is hard on batteries. There were no signs of failure, but I would rather not wait for it. It was more effort than I thought. I have both an SAE addon for a battery tender and a coaxial for heated gear.
    The problem was that the OEM had threaded posts and the new one did not. I did not realize this until I was installing it. The new battery came with a nut, but how to hold it in there while you tighten the screw? You can’t reach in there with the battery where it needs to be and the main attachment points don’t have long cables. I used some tape to pull the nuts into place from behind, which worked but required moderate profanity.

    2. I also replaced the highway pegs I had, which were jury rigged to say the least. I used the same ones I attached to the tip over bars on my Goldwing from Twisted Throttle. I put them higher and more forward than the old ones. Here you can see both. The old ones were attached to the skid plate. These are attached to the crash bars.

    P.S. The stains on the concrete are from the iron in our water, not motorcycle rust.
    P.p.s. First time using the JIS screwdriver set much. Took out a moderately rounded screw with no trouble.

    Installed the Centerstand and Battery tender quick connect. Also ordered a touring windscreen.
    The service manual in section 12-85 reads that if D S is showing the transmission needs to have the Clutch Initialize Learning procedure performed. Try it and see if it works.
