comment How do you anticipate battery failure in advance?
This voltage drop test is only an accurate battery test if the cable, connections, solenoid and starter are all known to be good.

Do they work for what purpose? Do you mean will covering it in cold weather provide some benefit other than keeping snow and sleet, etc. off of it?

comment Trying to start a Honda CBR250RR after winter (Also feeling a lot of friction when in neutral)
Rust is a usual cause, it can come from high humidity. I have seen motors where small mice have nested on top of the pistons. They gained access via an open exhaust pipe and crawled through an open exhaust valve.

comment Rear coil spring replacement Mazda 3
A typical lowered spring will have a higher spring rate. This will make the vehicle handle better with less body roll. It will make the car ride firmer and less comfortable.
