    Replacement battery.

    Is there anything I need to know before buying a replacement battery? Like is there some hot deal or new technology I should be aware of? Current battery is a Yuasa YB30CL-B.

    For those interested in the story....2009 GTI SE 155. Recently purchased. Cranking slow. I charged it twice but things did not get better. I pulled the battery and there is no acid in it, DRY! I think the previous owner recently replaced the battery but did not fill it. Not even taking a chance. I'm replacing it.

    Stay away from wet cell OEM style batteries. They are good for two years and fail. Get an AGM battery such as an Odyssey or Deka. I got 13 years out of my Odyssey, never let me down and was working fine when I replaced it with a new one.

    Not sure if it will happen to your model, But once I unplug the battery the VTS configuration was lost, needed to re-configured, Something to remember....

    sometimes that happens, most often not though. not sure of the reason why it does sometimes forget itself.

    But it could forget that it has the compass, or depth, or anything else. or think it has VTS and give you a "Sensor" warning. Most likely won't happen to you, but just an FYI.

    I think that's it. Use deka online tool that tells you which size is right. I think the "L" comes with the spacer that makes it fit tight in the mount, but you should confirm.
