I don't know exactly, I know the batteries are made by Delka and would hazard a guess they are somewhere in the 375-400 range....Why do you ask?

I did a load test and it shows it in the green. It also show that its only 200 cold cranks. to me thats kind of low.

It wont start as fast as I would like it to. The batt is 5 years old.

I need to stop being cheep and get a new one .

what do you think?

You definitely got your moneys worth out of it....Better to replace it when you can than have it leave you stranded somewhere...What is the Voltage? Then what is the Voltage when a load is applied to it?

The batteries you get from HD are real good batteries so I would stick with it. You may pay a little less for a aftermarket battery but it may cost you in the long run. I replaced my battery on my 08 about 3 months ago, the original battery was still good but I just felt better having a new battery in the bike, but I am a preventive maintenance type of person. On a side note I had the nylon strap that is under the battery that assist in the battery removal break, the strap was dry rotted so I had to make a new strap, I used a heavier wider strap this time. The battery is a real PITA to get out without the strap.

08 FLTR candy red sunglo, 103 Stage II, Woods TW-222 cams, V&H Dresser Duals with Monster Rounds, Thundermax tuner, Willy Shiny Wheels and Forks and a bunch of other stuff.

Delka makes good batteries, but the Yuasa's are just as good and typically a few bucks cheaper. I like the fact that with the Yuasa I am the one who is getting to activate and charge the battery initially so I can make sure it is done properly...We have had too many factory activated batteries end up not holding a charge because they sat on a shelf forever and are no longer good, or were not properly activated. Regardless of what battery you choose, stay away from the Chinese batteries!!!!!

Yeah man, no worries....While you are at it you might consider installing battery tender leads so you can keep the battery topped off when you are not riding it...
