Riva Battery....worth it?
So does anyone have any experience with the Riva maintenance free battery? Is it worth it to buy vs getting a standard replacement battery from dealer for probably just as much?
Whaile im asking, im noticing the Odessey and Scorpion batteries too.....gels and what-not.

I tried the Riva battery before and it only lasted me for one season before it would not take a charge anymore..I then went back to the OEM and they did well but after a while i would start to get a 12 volt low code..I have since switched to the Odessey batterys and have had ZERO issues...No 12 volt low or charging issues..I now run them in both my skis...The Odesseys are a little more than the Riva and OEM but well worth the money spent...

I got a Deka sealed. I dont know the actual composition of the battery. Could be found online. I know alot of people here have used the deka if u search. Works great. 2 seasons so far on it.

I got a Riva battery and was very disappointed. It lasted only one season. The OEMs will last four years if you take care of them and they are a perfect fit, most of the aftermarkets don't fit right.
