Default Battery Replacement Hardball

Today I recieved a engine light followed with LO and then 8.9 showing up on the speedo.

After an evening charge on the trickle it fired right up, at the conclusion of the ride the battery was dead again.

After a search I am still unable to find the right replacement.

What cost effective battery did you replace your factory battery with?

Is there a smaller option available? Part numbers are greatly appreciated it possible.

you have to say what year and model bike you have. We don't know.
with a 10mm wrench check your battery bolts.
You have a Yuasa battery in your bike. Your owner's book will give you a part number. Amazon has great prices on them.
Not knowing where you live but if its in a winter state get a battery in the spring

You can find cheap batteries at places like Walmart but I can say they don't last very long. Cheap does mean less quality in the case of batteries.

Duracell's at Batteries plus. Great units. Rated at 310 CCA- mine tested at over 500 right off the shelf.

You can't select all Victory models on their website, but I bet they have the right one. About $125, no outrageous shipping, and you have a local guy to deal with.

you would think a 2013 bike would still have a good battery. Did you check the bolts with a 10mm wrench. Lay on the ground and check the voltage regulator plug. Pull it apart and clean it

All connections are tight and good to go. The previous owner neglected to maintain the battery properly. I will check the volt plug when I get back to Oregon. Thank you for the guidance!

Walmart batteries are the worst. I will never, unless desperate, buy another Walmart battery.

I agree with your statement about cheap prices not meaning a cheap battery. I'm pleasantly surprised at how well these Chrome bike and general use AAA batteries are holding up. It's like they are the top of the line name brand without the name brand name.

I wish the bike batteries were something I could buy a couple of and just stick on the shelf for a rainy day but of course they don't work that way.
