07' 250X Original Battery. still rockin it?
Just kinda curious of you 07's out there how many of you Guys/Gals changed out their battery? I am to the best of my Knowledge still using the Original battery(got it used with 11 hrs) It 5 years old now- (still holds a charge) I was thinking of swapping out the battery for a new one. The battery has always been taken care of - sadly this season i never took it out of the ski until a week ago.. The ski was winterized but just forgot to remove the battery. It's been on the tender ever since.. to tell you the truth it's the first season the ski has been out side all winter(normally it's in a storage place but that got to be expensive).
Those of you that are or have replaced their Batts are you using the direct replacement? or something better?

Never had any issue with it and this ski sits for weeks at a time and it takes some cranking to start the old ultras some times.

I got 9 years out of the OEM battery on my '99 Ultra 150. I use a trickle charger on a timer, charge it 15 minutes per day.

Thanks for all of the replies! I had no idea that you could get so long out of a battery. I think i got nervous because i did not get the battery on the charger as i normally do.... looking forward to a great season...

I wondered the same thing.
Bought my '07 new in '09 and I asked if the battery was new at that time and they said yes. Thought maybe it sat for 2 years but not the case. The mechanic also said, as many of you had, if you put it on the trickle charge every once in a while when in storage you should get at least 5-6 years.
