Maintenance free Battery
« on: October 13, 2017, 09:00:14 AM »
I needed a new battery.  I wanted to try one that was maintenance-free.  I ordered this one ($72) from battery mart:

It would only hold a charge for about 24-48 hours unless I put it on a battery maintainer every time I parked the bike.  PITA!  Maybe it was just a bad one or maybe just sat on the shelf for too long?

I returned it and got this one ($30) from Amazon.  Works perfectly.
