well thats a bunch of BS considering I just got 7 1/2 years from my original battery. I guess by that logic all girls drink Diet Coke too.
YMMV. Those are guidelines for a well maintained MC. From time to time, you may get more than 5 years from your battery, but your on borrowed time. Don't get stranded due to an old battery. For the cost of a new, it's a cheap update to ensure no down time.
