DCinCT happy riding time...check those tire pressures now before you hit the road...they are probably low too and while at it check your lights, signals, oil, etc...

purplenova Evidently this must be a hot time to replace batteries.
My local dealership had zero units on hand.

So I picked one up at my local batteriesplus store and it was cheaper than the dealership with online discount and a mail in rebate.
Ordered online and picked it up last night.

FX4 As someone that goes through a lot of batteries, boats, kayak electronics, they are not the same. In general, I find the cheap Chinese batteries are good for a year or two and that's about it. A quality battery is good for five or six years.

Good choice. If there's a problem, how much help do you think you'll get from an online seller? Your local dealer would have the problem fixed before the online seller ever responds to you. ( If they respond!)

purplenova Been debating on where to get my replacement battery. From reading other entry's on the site
looks like the AGM is required. I called my local dealership which wants $88.00 plus tax the the
item number is YTX12-BS 33610-48E20.

Also found what appears to be the same exact battery from Mightymaxbattery and free shipping.

Has anyone used or heard of these guys?

You are on borrowed time - it can go instantly at this point, start fine in the morning, you stop for a moment, go to restart and it will be dead. Cheap ride insurance to just replace them every 4 years or so.

I agree. Mine was the OEM battery from 05 and 2 years ago, it went out while on a charity ride on a Sunday.
