Stock Batt Finally Died
So I never put water or refilled it (I know my fault haha, just didnt feel like it) Rode Sunday, shut the ski off. Went to crank it later and 1 click and no lights/gauges. Pulled battery and it was empty as far as I could tell. Luckily I was close to the dock and just swam it back.
Took it over to advance auto earlier today and before any testing the batt only registered 8.6 on the gauge. All the cells must have been dead haha. Ordered an EXT30LA replacement.
Im assuming if I took care of it better it would have lasted a bit longer but I cant complain for 3 years out of it.

3 years is very good. I am running the same battery from Advance in both my skis. They seem to be pretty good.

EXT30LA They told me it fit a Harley I think. I have read where others have said they have the same part number, but a different brand and it comes with a spacer because they are a little to short. I just cut a piece of rubber mat that is about 3/4" thick I had laying around put it underneath and it fits nice and snug.
