Yep, that's what I told you.
On an R6 that is correct. I don't just make this up, I try to advise customers on what does and doesn't work.
Ask around who has put an aftermarket battery in an R6 what their experience has been.
I've got 2 R6's in the shop right now with batteries they got from Cycle Gear. Both have fried regulator rectifiers, and one that has the incorrect battery installed, has acid leaking everywhere.
Retail on that battery is $184.95, we discounted it to you, but I don't even think Walmart offers a battery for your bike.
Some bikes, particularly older carbed models will have no problems with a Walmart / Interstate / Jimmyjoebob brand battery.
However a lot of the fuel injected bikes will typically run into issues. I've seen running problems, fried regulator / rectifier wiring etc.

Patrick had to fix my 03 R6 after it fell dead on me mid turn out on 3090. Not to mention it happened the weekend before I was supposed to go to my first track day. Saved my again and had me ready to roll for the track.

this does make alot of sense..... its it how the battery is monted on that bike and location of rectifier underneath?
