    That's a basic battery, I wouldn't waste my money on it. I'd go with a sealed or lithium battery.

    You don't mention how much. I'm with Deepseeadan, I like the lithium iron from Battery Tender.

    Those are basic lead acid batteries, just like the OEM Yuasa (and likely not as good). A basic lead acid battery makes no sense in a dual sport. One dump that you are slow to recover back to upright (>15 seconds), and you've got battery acid dribbling out of the overflow tube to who knows where.

    Get a sealed battery: https://www.amazon.com/Power-Sonic-P...8TFZ9TB0S4FX0Y

    Lithium Ion is great too, but for a TW might be overkill. I've had a sealed AGM battery for 6 years....no problems. Half the price.

    I bought a Battery tender lithium battery a few weeks ago from Amazon. 1/3 the size and 1/2 the weight.... so far, very happy with it - cranks the bike faster than the stock battery. It comes with foam shims to fill out the battery compartment.

    AGM/Gell batteries can be very inexpensive. I think I paid less than $20.00 for mine. It has been fine for a year so far.

    Is that the exact one you have? I didn't see it listed for a TW

    From what I saw I can't afford the Battery Tender stuff.

    This looks like a super way to go for the $$! Mock up a cardboard box to simulate the dimensions of the above batter to see if it will fit, easy! m.
