We carry them, as well as most bike shops. Beware of Walmart / offbrand batteries.

just spend the $60-$80 and get the battery that is right for your application.. get with PAtrick or cycle gear since you are on the NW side they are prolly easier to get to.

Talk to Patrick and get it diagnosed properly FIRST. You're not too far from him.
No sense in wasting your money if you don't even know that a battery will fix it.
Could be the rectifier, could be the battery, could be a short/loose connection, could be a lot of things.

He asked I answered. When the rectifier on my old R6 left me stranded on 3090 and I needed it ready for the track by the next weekend.... guess who was there?

I ve bought 2 wal mart batteries ( I work for wal mart automotive)

They have never let me down, the first one that I bought is in Zero's bike and is still thumpin. its been in there for 3 yrs

There is nothing wrong with them..... ohyeh, when I bought my gsxr 750, the guy that sold it to me JUST bought a yuasa....they are great batteries dont get me wrong, but it left me stranded several time within the first 2 months of owning it. I then bought a Everstart(wal mart) battery. Was happy ever since.
