    Best Battery For 250/260x ?

    I will probably be needing a battery for my ski soon and I figured I would start a thread soley for peoples opinions on Batteries for our skis.

    Stock battery seems pretty good but what other battery would you use and why?

    Get AGM

    Absorbed Glass Mat is the right technology. Dekka, http://www.odysseybatteries.com/ or the Auto Zone house brand are
    all very similar. I paid about $90 for AZ at the two year mark.

    Yuasa's and Deka's are good batteries and generally the two brands I end up shopping for. I have a friend who's brother used to work for Deka. He used to be able to get us "2nd's" for $40. They were perfect in every functional way but might have a case blem. Never had any problems with Deka.

    On another note, I just ordered a new battery from Cyclepartsnation the other day since I was ordering some other stuff. It was only $63 for the stock Yuasa replacement battery...

    hmmm...what year model did you look up? I just looked it up again and going as a 2007 Ultra 250x and it's still showing $63.60. It's the Yuasa YTX20L-BS which is the Maintenance Free AGM battery.

    The killer is Cyclepartsnation charges about $20 for shipping so you might as well pick up other stuff too...

    ahh so they make up for the cheap price in shipping. Sounds like an Ebay style sale lol.
    Good deal if you need something else with it though.

    Yuasa have always been good to us except a few collapsed cell in really rough and big wave riding. Then again that also cracked the hull too.
