My 2014 original battery finally id dying. 38 thousand miles. Seems like a good run. Hasn't left me stranded but tonight it didn't start on the first button push. Took a couples tries to crank fast enough to start. So I ordered a new Yuasa from Amazon.
Went to the battery place Saturday and the book says its an AGM battery so there's no adding water or checking levels other than full load testing. I will buy a new battery this spring to be on the safe side.
So I got my new battery in it tonight. I will say it turns over at twice the speed of before. Same Yuasa GYZ20L AGM as was in it when new. I got a deal thru Amazon for $58.52. Deals are hard to find but they are out there.
The battery in my VTX finally died this year. Lasted 9 years tho so I can't complain.
Course it was one I put together myself from Li-Iron cells. Was way more battery than I needed but I will say that after I put it together and installed it in the bike I never touched it after. And it always started, even in 20 degree weather. Unlike the lead acid battery I bought for it because I thought it was dying. It wasn't, it's just a beast to turn over especially when cold.
Worked so well I am going to start getting the parts to make another for this Valk. Hope it lasts as long as the last one.
