I just picked up my Maverick and the first thing I noticed was that it was slow at starting. I rode it all weekend and it still starts slow. Is this the battery or do all of them do it? If its the battery I'm buying a Odyssey. Let me know...

I plan on putting a LiPo battery in. Not a liquid lead-acid fan.

I tried a 16cell liFiPO4 and it only made a slight improvement.
I also tried a quality pair of jumper cables connected to a running truck, it did not help much either. I believe its the nature of the beast.
The largest improvement I've seen is after 400-500 miles the motor loosens up a little.

Get a Lithium Iron battery, really low weight, and lots of power. They are supposed to last a really long time, and crank great at low temps.
