absolutely battery maintenance is key to a long life.

You might look up a battery shop/store in your area. you can usually find a nicer battery there at a better price than at a motorcycle shop

Ugh... They&#39;re all the same.

Get the cheapest one possible. Get a battery tender for it.

All the batteries in this size are within .2 amp cranking and draw rate. It doesn&#39;t matter.

The Yuasa is so over priced. Go to walmart.

Kepping it on a tender is the key

If they sell you a battery dry, Usually they come with pre measured electro-lite fluid. There is usually not enough. After filling, look down each cell and see if there is a slight amount of fluid covering the plates. If not add a small amount of Distilled water to each cell. Just enough to cover the plates. Let sit for 30 minutes and recheck. Add more water if needed (just enough to keep plates submerged.) it will reduce the chance of sulfation and internal shorting. Do not over fill, that will create excessive sloshing and gassing.
