Before you all start hollering about a Yuasa... I bought one of these three years ago and it has performed flawlessly. My logic was at the price if it made it a year I was ahead. But it has lasted 3 years! Getting ready to order another one so thought I would share in case anyone doesn't mind saving some dollars.

I wound up with a 12 for the fiancee's bike and it seems a bit tall for the opening (cover doesn't fit anymore). Is that what others have experienced too?

That's a great price. $28 and lasted 3 years. Way ahead for sure.
" Motorcycle boots are not good for walking"
I always replaced batteries at 4 years been riding ever since. Walking sucks.

I've been carrying a small jump starter also but never had to use it so far. It's good for a flash light, phone charger or small power source.

I bit the bullet for a Lithium Ion battery for mine, I was impressed by the longevity of LI's my brother had. In my mowers I go wally world cheapies and with the use of battery tenders I figure anything over 2 years is a gift, the tractor mower is going on 5.

Very good price, Yuasa batteries seem to have a good reputation.

I had a Battery Tender brand Lithium Ion battery in my previous bike. Loved it. It was going strong approaching 5 years before I traded in the bike. The only issue with LI batteries is if you ride in temps under 30 F, cold cranking is very slow at first, but will get better after a few seconds of slow cranking. They also only need to be charged about every three months or so.

I had no problems with the battery fitting. Installed great. I usually replace at about 3 years or when cranking slows down. The desert is VERY hard on batteries (I don't want to walk either and no kick starter ).

I have the Lithium Ion battery in my SWing and have had no problems with it for the four years it's been in it. I don't ride in cold weather so that's not a problem. And I put it on the Battery Tender Jr. charger about every other month while it's sitting in the garage during the winter.
