If it's a YUASA battery, then that price is correct.

My battery just died this year. Not bad for being the stock battery. Lasted six years.

I got a battery from batteries plus and it was over 100 but less than 150 so maybe 120-ish. Putting a new battery in is not rocket surgery.

for what it's worth You can buy a battery that fits and works just fine for about 2 years at advanced auto for our bikes and for 600RR's for around 55 bucks.

^Is it the type you have to fill yourself? I got the sealed gel one and I know those are more expensive

Default get the part #

I work at an electrical distributer, the batterys are the same as if you were to go get it from Batterys plus or along those lines, when in doubt go to an electrical distributer and see if they can get it for cheaper.

$70 bucks for the YUASA at my local Yami dealer. It is the same battery that is used in the raptor.

My dealer charges $289 for Powrs out the door and I do my oil change for under $25.

Shop around and save some dough in the future.

Prices vary alot from one place to another.
