    How long are your original batteries lasting?

    I have a 2010 FX SHO and a 2010 FZS. While my batteries aren't bad, I'm considering putting in Odyssey PC625 batteries. I don't want to just waste money but I'd also like to completely avoid any dead battery issues. I keep the stock batteries on a CTEK charger while in storage and I've had no problems, just had to top off the water at the end of last season. How long are most people getting out of their OEM batteries?

    Sounds about right, on average you should only expect 1 season out of those crap batteries. I'll be replacing my yuasa in the spring.

    I have personally found the Deka batteries to be better than the Odysseys, having owned 2 of each.

    1.5 years and babied with a battery tender. I now have an odyssey. FWIW, I used a PWC sized Odyssey in my LT1 Camaro autocross car and had zero issue starting-even in winter.

    3 years on the oem battery, it has almost ran dry one time the ski sat for a long time but filled it up with destilled water and charged it and its still going fine. they get weak right before they go so if then it has water in it and charging it wont help then id replace it.
