New battery coming
Written by wynndungey on 3/12/2012 at 05:22 am

I've been very happy with the OEM batteries. You do need a battery that will
never need water added during their life. And any of those also won't have a
vent tube. (At least in my experience.) I've been getting about 8 years on a
single battery and I don't use battery tenders. On the other hand, I don't let
the bike sit too long.

Just placed the order from impactbattery.com.
