You do not need a battery tender. If you take your cables off that makes a huge difference. If it's cold out, simply take the batteries inside. The warmth will keep the batteries good for a long time. My dad does this trick in New Mexico, and rarely has to replace batteries after "storage."

its called a multimeter. you can get one at walmart or an autoparts store for 20 bucks, but i would get a craftsman one from sears for the same price. better quality.

ive been using a parts unlimited battery for almost a year now, no problems with it. its a HULLUVA lot cheaper than the yuasa batteries, and just as good imo.

when i worked at stubbs the warranty for yuasa batteries was 6 months, that might vary where you get it from, but the parts unlimited rep told me the parts unlimited batteries have a year warranty, and that they were made by yuasa also.

im inclined to believe him, if youve worked in certain retail/wholesale businesses and you learn how branding works its not as far fetched as it seems.

regardless, i could buy like 3 of the PU batteries for the price of a yuasa one if i had, but so far its still pushing great voltage. Yuasa batteries are good. only bad thing i can say is the price keeps going up.
