Shocker batteries are a new line explicitly developed for V-Twins and offered at a very competitive price. These factory-activated and sealed AGM-style batteries are assembled in a robust stock appearing ABS case with a matte black finish. The terminals are a flush mount design with dual connection points (14-amp models have one connection point) and captive internal nuts for a fumble-free installation.
The impressive list of features includes extra thick plates for extreme vibration resistance, a heat-sealed cover to protect against leakage and corrosion, and fully sealed posts. Independent laboratory testing parameters include high-rate discharge, ten-hour discharge, vibration, short circuit, and zero-degree Fahrenheit cold cranking amp tests. Also, these units were subject to extreme field-testing conditions during their development.
"The Shocker might be offered at a reasonable price, but is not short on performance," says James Simonelli, Twin Power Brand Manager. "This is by no means a standard metric or universal type battery. We have found through testing that any time terminal adaptors or spacers are used, amperage transfer during the initial start may be compromised. You may get strong starts after the initial installation, but over time, vibration, arcing, and corrosion can affect the battery's ability to deliver reliable performance. The Shocker won't let you down."
Fitments are available in all popular 14, 20, 24, and 30 Amp configurations and retail prices start at $91.15.See your local Tucker V-Twin dealer for more info about Twin Power products.

The What We Ride features focus on our contributors and the motorcycles they choose to kick their leg over. Weâ€™re fortunate to work with Alec Ozawa, and he has become a vital part of the ChopCult team. Alex is a Chicago-based custom motorcycle enthusiast who enjoys photography as one of his artistic outlets. Having no mechanical background, his can do attitude helped him to build this 1998 Harley XL1200C, 95th Anniversary Custom chopper he calls Porosity Princess. Enjoy!
