Which TW, 2003, 2008 or 2013?

I strongly prefer AGM (no liquid to spill, higher static voltage at 12.8, versus 12.6, handles vibration better than lead-acid)

I think Yuasa YTZ7-S will fit the later years.

If replacing a YB7C-A, you will need some padding, as the AGM is slightly smaller.

A clone is stocked at my local O'Reillys as an ETZ7-S

AGM replacement for "wet", no brainer:

Even if it comes (I ordered on-line) with a charge the recommendation is to fully charge it before installation & use.

Might be a bit of a difference between the "wet" and AGM. Imagining the same for the guys that go Lithium (even smaller and much lighter).

Always make sure you fill the void(s) in the battery compartment. Don't want any battery to be moving around at all while you are riding. I used UHMW but solid rubber blocks would work too.
A member here filled in this area with small containers that had compartments for small tools/fuses/tire valves/etc. Like the type you'd find at The Container Store.
Really among one of the best simple ideas I've seen posted here. I saved pictures of it but couldn't find.

I bought two of these because the battery in one of my TW's was starting to give me problems so I figured the other wasn't far behind. Wonder of wonders the battery that wouldn't hold a charge for more than a day all of a sudden works perfectly and I have two new batteries sitting on the shelf.

and inexpensive to boot! Of course when I need one I'll not remember you're link or that I put it into my favorites in my browser.

Without a doubt, Battery Tender Lithium batteries have saved me a crapload of money in the long run.

With all of the 12v rider bikes having them except for the RE5 and the MB5, I can store bikes for YEARS and not worry about them.
The TW has a Neutrino, and that drains the battery. All I do on that one bike is remove the negative wire and I'm done.
