    '07 Ultra 250X Battery Finally Going?

    Well I trickled charged my battery as usual each winter once or twice for a few hours.

    When the dealer tech came out this spring to service it he said it was a bit weak.
    After driving for for more than a week during Memorial Day then sitting for 30 days it was rather dead yesterday. Had to give it a boost and has been fine restarting and such.

    So I think it's time to replace it and am leaning towards the oem Yuasa.
    I think it's a YTX 20 lb something, blah, blah. Didn't write down or take a pic of the battery when charging--shame on me.

    So what do most of you think for replacement? I did a search and not much info especially in the last few years.

    Thanks!

    Disagree with warren on this one, you can get a sealed AGM battery for about $20-30 more than an "old school" battery and they last considerably longer with proper care

    if his factory battery has lasted since 07 ...........thats proof enough to save the money I say, but each to their own ... the factory use Yuasa lead acid batteries because they are designed for the correct charge rates etc the ski delivers ,
    ALL AGM battaries typically require a DIFFERENT charge voltage and cycle the NO ski charging system delivers this with out addition of other devices.........Just sayin stick to what has been proven I say.

    Just changed the OEM Yuasa in my 2003 Hayabusa. They last a long time if properly maintained.

    So what brand and model spec would you suggest? I have all the auto parts stores near me.

    Bought the ski in '09 so it's on the 6th season. Dealer also told me back in '09 it was a new battery and not sitting in the ski for 2 years.

    Does anybody have the exact model # Yuasa? Otherwise I'll just look again and take a pic this time

    I also didn't realize the oem battery is an AGM battery which is pretty good!

    BTW, I'm at 230 hours on the original SC belt and oem bearings. Did have about 4% GIO when I did a used oil analysis 2 years ago which most people say isn't too bad for forced inducted engine. Ski runs like it did 5 years ago when brand new. Been serviced by the dealer every 25 hours along with Spring and Fall service.
