was 30$, with a 6$ core charge....not too bad....

Now I seem to remember paying 70+ last year for a battery fot the 900RR at Batteries Plus......wonder what the difference is?:confused

Both have Acid you need to add (not sealed batteries) :confused

Not bad, I just paid 50 something for mine at a different auto parts place. Honda wants over $100. :mad Yes I was a dumb shit and left the key on after a track day when the bulbs were pulled. I had to add h2o too. It seems to be fine, but I will check Auto Zone next time as my wife's bike needs one. And a big time carb cleaning. I know I should do9 it, but I'm too lazy and she hardly rides it.

$30 is not too bad. I paid about that much getting it at cost from Interstate. I think they sell them at WalMart too, something to keep in mind if you ever need one in a pinch. How long do bike batteries usually last anyways? I'd rather replace it once every couple years than get stuck somewhere.

I doubt it was the top of the line, but it will do fine in my 600:D

well it looks like AutoZone raised their prices. They wanted $50 for the battery. I can get it for that much online from a motorcycle battery dealer for that price!

anyone have any other suggestions?
