Easy question, I'm sure...battery recommendations

My battery is crummy and would rather throw some money into a battery I can depend on than keep charging a battery that may or may not have enough to get up and running without putting it back on the charger for every ride.

I see there are the ballistic lithium versions but they are spendy (although lighter). Any other site recommendations?

personally id run Ye ole standard lead acid battery... while the weight reduction is nice... the cost is high, and there can be instances where the lithium ones just go kaput leaving you stranded.... least with the lead acid its like... ok i notice that im starting to crank slower n slower.

^+1 I'm not sold on the ballistic batteries since they have been known to become unstable if they are drawn down past a certain voltage. They also recommend balance charging them every once in a while to get the best performance and longevity. They're nice and awesome when the work, but I can't quite see the benefits outweighing the cost when compared to the stock battery.

What's a stock Yuasa cost? I thought they were pricey batteries as well.

*edit: Shorai is about $130

I replaced the OEM with this one at about 31K miles, at 56K miles it's still going strong. I will definitely buy another one when it's time. $60 and free shipping.

Ok so I lied, looks like I paid 148 shipped for my Shorai in 06/2011. That was because I didn't have the luxury to shop around at the time (batt was dead) and needed something in stock with fast shipping.

*edit: and a LiFe battery, plenty of the Yuasa and clones around

My factory batter has been fine since 2006. I just don't like traveling far with a 7 year old battery. Since this battery has been dependable, I'm gonna stick with YUSA this time. Maybe in 7 years the lithium batteries will be better and more common.

Any updates on batteries? I'm in need of a battery -- If I don't have to buy a $140 Yuasa to avoid battery headaches, then I'd like to.

If its cheap insurance - I will. The reviews on batteries seem to be written by people that think batteries are like size D batteries on a shelf, and you plug them in and go.

Any complaints on the Gel batteries, or some of the more economical options?

Exactly the kinda of report I'm looking for! I'm used to living in mild climates and being able to ride more or less year round - but here in Ohio, I'll have to use a tender and my bike sits in the winter....trickle chargers seem to be all the same (?)

Anyone have any particularly negative battery experiences....even though you charged the battery properly BEFORE installing it?

Anyone have any recommendations on battery tenders?

Thanks for your input!

Battery Tender Junior. Comes with a disconnect that you leave on your battery, and is a fairly small unit.

Battery Tender 021-0123 Battery Tender Junior 12V Battery Charger : Amazon.com : Automotive

Does not have a desulfate mode, so also works with Lithium batteries.

If I were you, I would just go get the $140 8 cell Ballistic battery. I just put one in the 599 and holy cow does that bike start up fast... Cranks like it's on crack.

Wound up picking up a battery and charger/tender on Amazon - wound up spending about $80 US after shipping, had to wait about a week.
The packaging was good, setup the battery to wait for a full charge - expecting to be forced to wait 12 hours, the battery read fully charged in about 5 hours -- I plugged it in, and it fired right up.

I'll update if I have any issues - otherwise its 100%.

This was the charger I picked up -- the battery fit was a bit tight, but I already knew it would have to be....and I put the charger disconnect with WIRES UP and at the TOP of the terminals to allow clearance -- the wires get in the way of the terminal if you mount it with the WIRES DOWN...just my observation. I'm sure it works fine either way.

The actual disconnect connection I have tucked into the rubber retaining strap, for easy access.

I think I bought that same battery for the 919 before - it's shorter than the stock one, right?

Guess what - it puckered out on me after two months of cold. Does NOT have enough cranking amps to crank over the 919 in the cold. I swapped it out in less than 6 months.

If it IS the same one, keep it on the charger. You might have to keep it in top shape to have it power the 919.

I will post an update if that happens...and then I'll shell out the price for a Yuasa.

If it is going to go bad - then it will happen here in Ohio.

Thanks for the input -- and I'll be a bit careful.

I went back and looked at my Amazon order, I got the UPG UT7B-4, so I think you're in better shape than I was. I think the UPG brand is what set off alerts in my head.

After it died the first time, though, it never did hold a charge overnight again. So at least watch out for that.

Still crankin every time. Even if they advertise that you're not supposed to completely drain the battery as it will "crap out on you", I've had two discharge from 2 winters and had to throw it on a battery tender both times in the Spring. Still starts up fine each time and on the first crank until today. It's the little beast that could.

Bought it 2 years ago and some change https://www.wristtwisters.com/forums/...tml#post452104

yeah looks like they went up a bit ... they are around 31 32 bucks.


Question how long can one leave their headlight on before the bike fails to crank... accidently left my light on at a buddies house for maybe 8-10 min and got back to the bike and it wouldnt even bother to crank. had to pop start it.

That Scorpion Battery is rated to 8 amp-hr. The high beam draws about 5 amps, so probably about an hr is the best you could hope for until the battery is completely drained.

I ran mine down once, when I shut the bike off with the kill switch and forgot to turn the key off. Ever since then I use the key to turn it off.

I'm looking for a battery too. I found on Amazon Yuasa YUAM7210A YTZ10S Battery : Amazon.com : Automotive for $118, free shipping with Prime. I found other batteries that have a "BS" after the model number (marylandmike has one) but I could not find what "BS" means (besides the obvious...).
Anybody?

I thought it meant Battery Sealed (aka Maintenance free). I think most of them are, even the AGM batteries, so most ads leave it off the description...but someone else here is more knowledgeable about batteries than I. TINY battery box, no room to wiggle with battery sizing.

Correct, you also get what you pay for. I have a ballistic that has lasted 4 Idaho winters in the bike, never been on a charger.

I had three less acid batteries die in the same time frame, even with a tender.
