Hey there.
So as I'm going over what I'm gonna need for my project, I've realized that mice have eaten up the battery leads for my bike. Was wondering if anyone had any leads on where to pick up replacements? Both the positive and negative are toast. Should I just fashion my own? What gauge wire should I use if thats the route I choose? Also, what battery would be a good choice for this bike? There's one on Mike's for $99 but I don't really want to spend that kinda dough for a battery.

Thanks everyone!
This forum is a real winner!

#6 would be plenty heavy Even #8 would be fine, Since there's no starter load. I've bought silicone insulated wire it's very soft and flexible which makes your life easy.
Doing this to my bike now... P/O had 4 gauge wire for leads so I matched them... This isn't going to be TOO heavy is it?
