one thing i cant stand is a company that wont stand behind there product. the wally world manager told me he keeps all his reciept. the car battery have date dots but not the moto batteries.
ive put more money into my pos bike to keep it running i would lose money if i sold it. like i can afford another battery. this one cost me $65 any volunteers to buy me another

there not worth a . i purchased one 2 months ago and its dead. i have the 1.5 amp charger for it and its still toast. they wont exchange it without a reciept. for stupid and convience i bought it i should of waited and bought a good one. now i have a battery that has 40% life left. a nice paper weight. maye i can use it on my daughter's electric bike.
The issue with Walmart batteries and other lower end batteries is their quality.
We've tested many different ones and their amp rating and load capacity vary widely from what they are supposed to be..
The main issue with that is on many bike it can cause everything from charging system issues to ECM failures.
I'm not saying that you can't run a Wally World battery and not have any issues, just that I've seen enough bike issues caused by inferior batteries that I stay away from them.

The man said he didn't have money for a high dollar battery :-( Patrick is right on some bikes don't like walmart batterys like my busa I bought one for like $54 dollars and it did exactly that acted funny driving down the road my gauges were acting stupid sometime it will start some times it won't lol so I went to batteries + and bought a $125 motorcycle high end batt never had issues again. But good luck on that battery issues
