Title: Hall of Fame Battery
Post by: Baz on July 22, 2021, 09:24:16 pm
Achieved a new record from my FJR battery. This little gal ran 15 years. I have never had a motorcycle last me this long, and batteries? 2-3 years tops.

Has been stored in an unheated garage for 15 years with only a tender attached in the winter months. Our winters see -40 often. Bike has about 90.000 km and owned it since new. (https://www.sport-touring.net/forums/gallery/10/886_22_07_21_9_19_12.jpeg)

Nice. My best so far is about six years and 50,000 miles. It was also a YUASA.

      :eek:      I've always had good luck with batteries. But, 15 years?! You got your monies worth out of that one!!

I usually get 6 years or so.
