    250 X stock battery

    I have an 08 250 X with 130 hrs on it. I still have the stock battery in it. It is 1 year and 8 months old. I keep a battery tender hooked when not in use. When would be a good time to replace it? Don't want to find my self out on an island at 8 pm with a dead battery. Thanks

    why replace it if it aint broke, batteries will last for years with the right TLC, it is an un-known do what you are most happiest with. some last some don't, you cant predict when it will fail.

    Set your clock - 2 years to the day........

    The OEM battery isn't that bad, however mine died within hours of crossing 2 years of use. I too have it on a battery tender and in a garage in mild FL weather.
    I would switch yours out now. Get a AGM (absorbed glass mat) battery from Dekka, Odessey, or similar brands. I got a generic Advance Auto Parts store AGM for about $95.

    the ytx20lbs which should be in it seems to last awhile. If I got 2 years out of a battery I would be very happy. I usually get new every year. Not worth the the one time your out alone to get stuck.

    Watman, if you live in heat your bats die sooner trust me. Gone through about 4 car bats, 12 lb /acid 18v & 5 lith/ iron 28v Milwalkees in 5 years, 40deg temps and even charged batteries in refrigerator, still did not help. My 2007 is shagged, but still goin.
