Battery issue

My battery on my 929 is apparently ready to be replaced (it's at least 2 years old). I had to push start it last night. I guess the cold kicked its .

My question is:

Are the batteries model specific (as in, this battery only fits/works in a 929.)?

or

Is it more universal (as in, this model battery works in this bike and this bike and so on.)

If any of you can suggest a place to snag a battery from before this weekend, I'd greatly appreciate it.

first, you should probably replace your battery with the proper battery, and i think the proper battery for your bike is a YTZ10S(according to Yuasa's battery application chart). other batteries will probably work, but you may as well get the right battery the first time. have you tried putting a trickle charger on it yet? you can get a 12V low amp charger at wal-mart for less than $20. I would at least try that before purchasing a new battery. i believe your battery is between $110-$125

Thanks fella.

What would you say is the average life span of one of these batteries.

average is as low as 1.5-3 years. i got in the habit of using a trickle charger at an early age and i can get 4-6 years out of a normal Yuasa battery

yes, it's a YTZ10S:

2000 929: http://www.crotchrocket.com/fiche_se...2000&fveh=3069
2001 929: http://www.crotchrocket.com/fiche_se...2001&fveh=3069

it will probably cost atleast $100

when i'm not riding my bike, it stays plugged into one of these. i highly reccomend it:

do you have a volt meter? it's a 12 volt battery. if it has 6 cells like a car battery does then each cell stores 2 volts. if you take a reading across the battery's pos & neg posts it should read atleast 12 volts (2x6=12). if it does, it should just need a charge. if a cell has gone bad it will read 10 volts instead (2x5=10) and will need to be replaced.

are the aligator clamps permanently attached.
what about attaching the pigtail to the bike and just plugging it in when you need to?
