Everstart batteries from Walmart
Dont buy them. they suck. I bought one for my 96xp because I didnt want to buy one from the dealer and it shit the bed after a month. I just bought another one and all it does is make the solienoid chatter and it wont turn over. I put a better battery from a friend in it and it fired right up. Now, Im off to sears to buy a die hard.

Oh, and I was told by the very knowledgable walmart employee that batteries cannot be returned, only exchanged and within like 14 days (store policy).

look for a local place that carries deka. get the deka agm and you will never go back. most big trucks run deka batteries, and I have been using them in everything for about 5 years. only 1 failed after 3 years because i left it in the ski outside over the winter

hell just shoehorn a motorcraft powerstroke battery in there, you may never need the 800 cold cranking amps, but dammit you could run a radio forever....

I actually had good success with the Walmart batteries in the Yamahas, and they we're a lot cheaper than the ones I have now in the Seadoos, the only reason I didn't get them again was because Walmart was sold out...

I personally had two of the Walmart batteries last over three years each in two different skis.
