    WPS batteries

    Anyone have a fact base response on who make Western Power Sports ( WPS) motorcycle batteries. A motorcycle parts vendor tried to convince me they are a house brand of Yuasa......can't find any data as to what country their even made in. At times , the search mode is not my friend. TIA

    WPS could very likely be this battery.

    If you're after made in the USA, I can confirm that an Odyssey PC310 will fit in a TW200. Barely, and very snugly, but it fits.

    My Yuasa is made in the USA. I think they have 2-3 plants here.

    Thank you for all responses. Yuasa has USA plants and in Taiwan / Japan. I'll use links etc too research more. There is a major quality / longevity difference in batteries.....not from China. Thanks again.

    This Yuasa NOT made in China by 8 year olds.
    Replaced with exact same for that type of service.
    9 years before I retired it. Still use it as a shop battery:

    Why I replaced the stock "wet" TW battery with an AGM Yuasa YTZ75. Also not made in China. Made in Japan by I'm sure adults (I hope )
