it had been about 4-5 years since i bought a new battery . well , i had to buy one for my sandrail, and when i got it home , i installed it and my rail still wouldnt start. i spent almost 2 hours going over all the wiring and even put a spare starter in to see if that was it. well my last thought was that they sold me a defectivr battery. i drove back up to sears and told the guy the battery is no good. he took it and went to hook it up , but before he did , he said to me " you must take these plastic caps off for it to work". i felt like such a doof . " when the hell did they start putting those on" " and why are they both black?" thats what i said. we laughed and i left.
