Just take the battery out of the bike, take it to O'Reilly, and tell them you need to replace it.

I don't remember how much I paid, but it was less than $100, about 4 years ago.

D-Nator,
I can't open the link, but at 50 US, you gotta wonder. Specs are just guidelines anyway. I went to a Kawi dealer for mine, probably overpaid, but it's still 100% after two years.

Good luck no matter what you do!

You get what you pay for. Just bought an AGM from Batteries and Bulbs (local store) for about $100.

Hmm. Put it there from my phone and it works for me. Oh well.
my experience is sometimes you get what u pay for and sometimes you pay too much. I am attempting to not pay too much.

My experience with cheap stuff usually goes something like this...

1. Excited about finding the deal of the century for gizmo

2. Install said gizmo

3. Said gizmo may or may not work to my liking

4. Pissed at self for wasting money on cheap gizmo

5. Spend the big bucks on new gizmo that works the way it's supposed to

6. Return to step one until lesson learned!!!!!!!!!

Agree on the gizmo. However, let me give you another example. Recently had to replace rhe ecu in the jeep. Shopped and found no one make a new one anymore. Could only get rebuilt. The prices varied by over 100$ from vendor to vendor. However they all were the same rebuilt ecu by the same company. It pays to research.. which is what i am doing. :)

Same here for car parts. Just my experience with bike parts that I was referring to. A battery is one thing I have learned to spend good money to get good results. Good luck!

Check out the new lithium batteries from Battery Tender. Well worth the price.
Only worth it in a warm locale. The cold kills them quick, charger or not.
