It's normal for 30-50mph to take longer, as there's more wind resistance. Is this surprising?

@rajah9: I don't know what units you're using in "0-30" but regardless, there is no universal correlation between battery technology and vehicle speed. There are many other factors involved that make such a statement hopeless.

@rajah9: I'm thinking of the Prius, where a replacement battery pack is $2200 - $2600 (goo.gl/bKMij). Deep cycle SLA is great for stationary applications (off-grid house) and are easier to charge and maintain. Lithium and NiMH batteries are a fraction of the size and weight at a multiple of the cost, which makes sense when you they have to carry themselves and the chassis weight is low. LiFePO4 is usually the right choice on a bicycle.

comment Oil change checklist
A service manual (Clymer, Hanes, or perhaps the manufacturer's) will give you instructions for regular maintenance. Also, this question sets the tone for a non-professional site.

comment The headlights dim to almost off when I turn off the engine. How do I test the battery?
The exact thing you want them to tell you is the CCA of the battery. Not just "good/bad".
