My '07 still has the original, and, at least for now, still seems pretty stout. That said, I would be happy to throw whatever is in there with same.

Just got my Wesco battery today from new bonneville. The bike still doesn't boot up, engine turns over but won't fire up. It's about 38 degrees not that cold outside. What's the next thing to check?

Do you have spark?
Is a fuel line gummed up or clogged?
Are the fuses good?
Kill switch in the correct position?
Sorry if these things have been addressed in earlier posts, but it almost HAS to be something simple. Fuel + Spark + Compression (all occurring at the correct time) = a running engine.

Good luck and keep us posted on your findings!
