    Battery ??????

    Just replaced the second battery in my 05 GTX LTD. The stock battery last about 3 years the Sealed battery lasted about 6 months and costed over a 120 + dollars. I was at Walmart and they have bike batteries for 59 dollars that are sealed will those work in my ski. Is there any magic to the 120 sealed batteries.

    I'm with you on that. Dealers are selling OEM batteries for around $100 and that seems too much for something that only lasts a couple years. Now I've been told the cost off batteries has gone up due to lead? Is that rite?
    I will support this site when ever possible.........

    man you guys are going through batteries like beerI'm still running my stock 06 RXP battery. Don't go deep cycle, you need batteries with more CCA, not a deep cycle with low CCA. If you are going through batteries real often then I would say they aren't getting charged.
