New Battery
« on: October 13, 2021, 12:51:43 PM »

I ordered a replacement battery today. My original battery is getting a little weak after 4 years and almost 55,000 miles. I'm going to try the
Yuasa GYZ32HL Battery. They say it has 500 CCA's and it has really good reviews. Amazon has it on sale for $159 and it is supposedly in stock. So, as they say, we'll see!

I'd be careful on Amazon whether it is a real Yuasa or a China knock off - yes, that happens just google it to find out.  My Dad thought he was saving by getting a "Yuasa" battery on Amazon, it didn't last a year and there's no warranty. 

I have the same battery being delivered today from JP Cycles.

The problem with batteries is you never know how long that "new" battery has been sitting on some warehouse shelf when you bought it. In as little as 6 weeks the plates in an inactive battery start to sulfate. I bought a brand new battery from my stealership and it lasted 10 months! I rifled through my folder of receipts and returned it to the dealer (1 year warranty). The replacement now has 5 years on it and she's cooked. I'll call that one a win. I hope you get 5 years out of your new Yuasa.

I understand the "Buyer Beware" scenario and I'll most definitely check the voltage and date code when it arrives, but other than that it should be nothing short of a great battery......I hope  ;)

Thanks for the comments guys.
