The size of your battery is mostly predicated by whether or not you want electric or kick start.  If it's kick only, a smaller battery will do.  I wouldn't run a capacitor on a non-race bike, personally.  The power output isn't consistent like a battery, so I imagine it would suck on a longer ride.

Well guys thank you. All though not what i wanted to hear it has compelled me to not try the whole battery delete thing. I dont plan to ride crazy far on it for the simple fact it will be a show bike for me, but i still want the lights to work well, and it not to stall out when im on the highway for sure.
