Nice..... LOL..

Ah... yeah... LOL. I just recommended it for those who may have a local PU distributor. Lots of local moto shops use them. I almost bought a bat from the one your recommended but then I found out the local shop here can order me a bat for nearly the same price.

It's not super duper fast yellow

Hmm, I guess that'd make it easier to hook up accessory harnesses and even your charging harness.

That's right, sprock, you finally admitted it!!!! Yellow is faster!! Just like my bike!
Too late to take it back now, you've been quoted!
Yellow fast... silver slow!
But yeah, the extra terminals do kinda come in handy. I have my 12V accessory running off the extra posts, and in the winter I can run my heated jacket plug off it.
Only thing I didn't like was that you had to pizz around getting the factory cables to hook up right. Kinda awkward.

The motobatt honestly starts my bike quicker than I think a regular wet cell ever did, tho. Maybe my old one was just getting so old and the new one is deceiving, but I still don't remember my bike ever cranking so fast. I guess time will tell how it holds up, but it's great so far. No acid to mess with, comes fully charged, and only $65 to my door. Worth a shot.

I'm sure the Parts Unlimited one is a good battery, too, tho.

my understanding is the gel battery is the sealed battery..i read somewhere that "older bikes" should not have such Sealed batteries as their electronics are not configured for it..is that true?
