    latest battery thread???

    I've been trying to find the latest battery thread and am having no luck. Can someone please point me in the right direction. I would like to order one of these for my '99 TW. Thanks in advance, Tom Edit.....there was a link to a battery from Amazon.

    Tom, about a week ago, holdon72 bought a Bike master Gel battery on ebay for $56.00 shipped. That's the only one I can think of recently. That's a good deal on a maintenance free battery.

    What type of battery are you looking for ?

    Wet cell - standard acid battery
    Gel cell - spill proof acid battery
    Lithium - solid battery (lighter but expensive)

    I bought two cheap ass chineese batteries and they work great. Everyone else that bought them had them crap out. Go figure.

    I have a Shorai in my TW... love it, for whatever that's worth.

    I think Tusk is selling a LI battery now too, not sure. But prices are gonna be coming down on 'em, which is good.

    Most motorcycle batteries are AGM or some other leakproof design. That is a safety feature to prevent spilling acid if you dump the bike. Keep searching on here or on Google. I don't remember exactly where, but I got my new AGM for less than $30 including free shipping on Amazon months ago and it works perfectly well with no problems and there are times when the bike sits for a few weeks without starting it up.

    Thanks guys. I found it. It was in Sponge's response to the Shorai product report. I ordered from Amazon. We'll have two of us to test the Lithium battery from Amazon. It's a Battery Tender product. I appreciate your help.

    The BT battery leaves a lot of extra space in the battery box. I threw a pressure gauge, patch kit, and a spark plug in there. still room for a few more nick nacks just haven't decided what yet.
