Yuasa Battery Life
Written by lcshepp on 9/21/2010 at 02:25 am

Hi Coasters,

I think the battery on my '90 is getting ready to go. Every once in a
while, it sounds like it's dead or dying. Then all of a sudden, it
comes back to life. I'm watching it pretty closely...

Just for grins, I went and checked to see when this battery was
installed. Ready for this?

June 1st, 2002. It was the one I installed when I figured out that the
regulator had killed the prior battery. New battery and regulator went
in that same day.

Almost 87,000 miles later (21112 on the bike on that day), 8 years and
almost 4 months later, it's still running albeit probably limping now.

It's a Yuasa and that kind of life is one of the reasons I keep using them.

(I got over 11 years of life out of the Yuasa that came from the factory
in my '89.)
