Batteris Plus???

I have a 07 Ninja ZX10R so as yall probly already know finding a batterie localy is near impossible. I called around the Spring/Woodlands area for about an hour and kept getting one name "batteris plus" so i called them. They happen to have one and its their house brand performance battery the X2 series but they are only 75bucks. Does anyone have any experiance with these batteris? Are they any good cuz 75 sounds a little cheap and yes i made sure he knew what bike I have.

I have purchased a battery from Batteries Plus (Beechnut & 610SW Loop) for my GSXR1000 K4 about 2 months ago. I know that they warranty the battery for up to one year, the sales guy told me that if I have any probs with the battery within a years time he said to bring it back and they'll replace it.

They showed me the cheap, the mid, and highest priced battery for my bike. I bought the mid and paid $72.

His bike uses a sealed battery.

I just replaced the batt on mine from Batteries Plus last week, so far so good.

And two years free replacement.

When I had to replace my battery in my Bimota DB4, I couldn't find one anywhere in stock and ordering would take a while. Walked into Batteries Plus, guy looked at it, walked over to a counter and picked up a perfect replacement. I don't recall the exact price, but it wasn't out of line and the service was spot on.

I'd use them again.

When i worked at Cycle gear, we'd send people to batteries plus all the time if they needed one right then but we didnt have it in stock... never heard any complaints about their products.
