    Replacement battery. 2007 RXP

    I purchased this ski in January and at the time we had to jump start it to crank it. Previous owner claimed it had been sitting and it just needed a charge. I came home and put a trickle charger on it and the ski then fired right up. I went out today and the battery isnt holding a charge, had to get a starter box to get the ski running.

    What replacement battery do you all recommend? I typed in the part number and a bunch of different brands came up. This is just one of the ones that I found: http://www.batteryservice.com/produc...mber=YB30CL-B. All of the ones I found ranged from 65-120 in price. Id just like to hear some peoples opinions on what they recommend. Thanks

    Odyssey brand AGM batteries are considered top shelf.

    Sold on the GH store web site

    That doesn't look like an AGM battery, just a regular maintenance free type. At least it comes with the acid already installed.

    "Motorcycle Battery Factory Activated Maintenance Free"

    If you use a recharger on it, make sure it is a good quality, maintenance type charger. If you overcharge a maintenance free battery, it can vent gases, which shortens the battery life.

    Do not use a simple automotive type charger, it can shorten the battery life.

    Battery Tender, CTEK, and BatteryMinder are good battery maintainer type battery chargers.

    Thanks for the tips. I picked up a maintainer from batterychargers.com back in January. Ive only used it a few times and it worked great on my X ski. If I can get 3 seasons out of this battery I will be happy. Shouldn't be a problem since the skis are stored inside and ill keep a maintainer on them.
