These little batteries rock!!

I ran across these a long time ago, this is prolly the 40th one that I've ordered, they show up in about 3 days and I've yet to find one that has failed, it's a gel battery out of Laverne CA, cold does not effect them and I usually order smaller than needed yet they perform exceptionally well in pretty much any application....I've even used the tiny YTX4-BS to start my old 1968 chev...and it worked!!!

Form your own opinion, I'm just tossing it out there, they are dirt cheap and work great!

I'm seriously considering using a bank of supercaps for my CBR250RR. The tiny battery is healthy, but still so easy to drain.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Just search "motorcycle gel battery" on eBay

This one is the YTX7-BS....there's also the 4,9,12 & 14-BS with some variations of each for fittment

The orange ones are the cheaper ones, I got this one for $29

You've gotten lucky then , I've ordered two of those, one on ebay and one on Amazon, both from reputable sellers. Both arrived dead and would not hold a charge with either of my charging units.

2009 Aprilia Tuono - Ginger
2001 XR650R BRP (Big Red Pig)
2006 Honda 599 - Ex wrecked it :-D
2007 Honda CB900F (sold)
2006 Honda VTX 1300C (sold)

Don't know what to tell ya bud....some are a little low when they arrive but pick up immediately with a bit of running or a quick charge...but ALL have always started the bike installed in...even when the battery is smaller than suggested suck as putting the YTX4-BS in my kids grizzly when it calls for the YTX-7BS or using the 4 in my foreman 450 for a couple months till I could get a bigger one....or...putting the 7BS in my GSXR when it calls for the 9BS that battery lasted for 2 years while I had it and was working great when I sold it even after sitting for about 2 months To each their own...I just saved a lot of $$ with these and figured I'd suggest these as an option...
