So basically you never rode, and your bike sat in your garage.

Try putting some miles on that cheap battery in this houston heat, you will be sitting on the side of the road like a used Harley.

So basically go a head and take the chance, cheep skate.

for two years straight I rode on the streets. then it went to a track bike for 2 years. actually it's worse on a battery to let it sit than to use t everyday. even though it would be like 2 weeks at a time before i started my track bike up it would start up every time. you go ahead and keep buying those expensive batteries and letting them rape you out of your money. it's people like you that buy 15 dollar a quart oil because you think it's somehow will help you more than the cheaper stuff.

You seem so concerned about (getting raped), (losing money.) Let me guess you work at Walmart right?

That explains why you are so brook! I have been riding 15+ years on and off road, nothing beets a sealed battery.

But I can understand if you can't afford the better things in life. No wonder you sold your bike.

By comparison, lead-acid batteries suck compared to sealed batteries. I don't know how one can argue that. It doesn't, however, mean that one cannot have good luck with Wally World batteries.

noone is argueing which one is better. the argument is that there's nothing wrong with the battery from walmart. I've had great exp with both batteries. these two clowns are saying to stay away from the walmart batteries even though they have never used them.

by the way ownage has used them and he recommends them I've used them and i remcommend them they HAVEN'T used them and they don't recommend them. wierd. it's like not recommending a car and saying ti's yet you have never driven it.

why do you feel the need to try to make yourself feel better by saying you make more than me (when it could be right and it could be wrong.) remember people don't end up with alot of money in the bank by spending more money when they could get the same deal elsewhere for cheaper. you might want to away an extra 30 bucks but not me. I can put that 30 bucks elsewhere.

Lashing out the action,
Returning the reaction
Weak are ripped and torn away
Hypnotizing power,
Crushing all that cower
Battery is here to stay


Smashing through the boundaries,
Lunacy has found me
Cannot stop the battery
Pounding out aggression
Turns into obsession
Cannot kill the battery
Cannot kill the family,
Battery is found in me


Battery

Still would not buy anything but a sealed battery. I like to ride worry free, The last thing I wan't to happen is my bike wont start because of a cheep battery. Yes I have used Walmart batterys before on my quads and nothing but problems. Just like their stakes!
