    Replacement Battery

    Anyone seen any good deals or best prices on a replacement battery for our bike? It's finally time after almost 5 years to replace the battery. Wondering if anyone else has been looking and found a good price?

    For a lead acid battery, you can buy a no-name battery dirt cheap, or a Motocross brand (made by Yuasa) for around $100 (US), or pay top dollar for Yuasa. I think you need to decide first if you want a “cheap” battery or a more expensive brand battery, then within that group search for the best price.

    I personally search the internet for the best price on the Motocross brand. There are certainly cheaper batteries out there, and perhaps possibly even better batteries, but that’s what I do.

    I shoot for an 8 year battery life and replace them early only if the battery’s performance deteriorates. Open circuit voltage is a rough indicator of the percent of storage capacity. Hotter climates, however, will see shorter battery life span.

    Thanks for reply. Not looking for a "cheap" battery. Just the best deal. wondering if anyone had found a good deal on a good battery. Should have worded my question better.

    I bought a Gel Cell off of Amazon for $40. Mighty Max - YTZ12S GEL is a 12V 11AH 210 Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) GEL (Maintenance Free) Battery

    I haven't gotten to install into as NaNCy is down for Chain and Sprocket replacement sometime this week. I am not in a rush cause I have my NT700V (NaTalie) on active commuter duty.

    This additional information regarding batteries type might be helpful to you. Battery Types Information

    I bought a Scorpion battery before from Battery Stuff. It was of good quality and price was less than of the dealer battery. YTZ12S Scorpion 12v 200 CCA AGM

    I hope that this gives you enough information to make an informed decision.

    I've heard good things about Deka AGM batteries (I believe they're also branded as Napa Gold, Duracell Ultra, Westco xyz, & Batteries+ Xtreme). They're made in the US at about $80.

    One interesting specification to look at is the weight. Some of the same size batteries with supposedly similar amp and cold cranking specs ........but..........some will 2 pounds lighter than the Yuasa or Yuasa motorcross batteries. The real battery power is all about plates, plates size, plate materials and acid capacity. Brings a question .......are some of these batteries really comparable.

    Some suppliers are playing fast and loose with the “motocross” name and spelling just a little different than the Yuasa built battery.

    More weight usually means more lead. More lead is better because it will last more. To increase performance the plates are more like a sponge (more surface to the acid).
