    Best replacement battery for GPR?

    Well my ski after being winterized doesnt seem to be holding a charge as well as it used to. What battery is everyone using? I wonder if Optima makes one as I use them in all of my vehicles (previously a car audio guy)

    Thanks!

    Odyssey batteries are good.

    But with any battery, make sure you do preventative maintenance and keep a trickle charger on a battery when there is a chance it will sit up for long periods of time.

    Here is some information over proper battery maintenance.

    My OEM YUASA lasted me from purchase in 99 through the summer of 04. I never put it on a trickle charger during the winter or had to recharge it at the start of a season. I'm sold!

    I'm not sure how long your winters are, but back when I had my good old 760, it would sit for about 5-6 months without a trickel. After two years of that, she was dead!

    My winters are about 5 months. I remember for the first 2 years I had the ski I even left the battery hooked up. I must have got a good one.
