    New Battery advice???

    I have been doing searches because I know I have seen discussions on here about batteries but I am having no luck finding what I know I have read in the past.

    A bit back, I asked my local dealer about a maintenance free battery and they told me there isn't one for the TW.

    I suspect you all have a different opinion and I would like to hear recommendations for a replacement battery or please direct me to the thread I need to view.

    Dette - your dealer is full of it

    You can find wet cell batteries that are "maintenance free"

    Gell batteries that are "maintenance free"

    Lithium batteries that "maintenance free"

    The only thing that's not "maintenance free" is your dealer

    I'll be back in 24hrs to give you some links .......

    I am LOVING my Battery Tender Lithium batteries. All the bikes I have with those, NEVER need to be on a trickle charge.

    LOVE. I used the word love.

    You KNOW these batteries are good now.

    I have a Shorai on my TW.
    Only at sub freezing temperatures is there any issue with them.
    They are the batteries I recommend!
