whats the difference between the dry cell and agm?...cause thats a big price jump

okay nevermind...hmmm $150 for a battery, abit expensive for my taste but seems worth it, especially since my bike doesn't like to crank in cold weather

I use the walmart brand on my suzukis cause they have a 3 yr warranty and my leds will tear em down each year. And I can get a new one day or night.

I know the 600rrs require a battery that walmart doesn't have... goodluck w urs.

I don't know if it's the correct model for your bike, but I do know it's a very popular battery for sportbikes.

YTX9BS for your bike
WESTco is another good brand. I have used them several times, however they are hard to come by. they are AGM batteries. Could prolly order one at Oreillys

??? a battery wouldnt cause it to die while riding; A battery just holds voltage for a restart and complete the circuit.

sounds like the notorious stator/rectifier problem that we have told you about before. also check the wiring


that seems to go bad on all 900rr's
