Battery on Ebay

There was one listed on Ebay that is an AGM for the vn750 that looks promising and the price is right. It's a 4 post battery so the post mounts are a bit different but it has a 2 year warranty

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BATTE...Q5fAccessories

So I was wondering if anyone has tried this one or not. Given the increase in prices for AGM batteries, even with the shipping it looks good

Never heard of the company. When I got mine, I got a decent deal from Apex Battery on Yahoo shopping, but htey didn't tell me the posts were reversed. I had to reroute my power and ground wires. THis one looks like you wouldn't have that issue and is made to fit multiple cycles.

Good find Dianna. It does look like a good deal, and is rated higher at 16.5 Ah instead of the 14 Ah originally specified for the vn750.
Also with the 4 battery posts, it can be installed with either side to the front, to match the polarity of posts to the battery cables on many different bikes.

Edit: I see AJ has already addressed this advantage above. He is a faster typer, probably faster thinker too. LOL

I can tell you all now that this battery at the moment seems OK, bought the battery on Saturday for 50.00.....BARGAIN and fitted it Monday, the height on this battery is 1 inch higher than stock battery but it fits. Bike has been stood for 6 weeks outside without even been touched ( snow n rain n freezing temps), 2nd push on the button and she fired up no probs.
WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW IT FAIRS OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS/MONTHS

I got mine as a replacement for another that died under warranty. It seems to be OK. My only concern was the leads connecting to it vertically as opposed to laying flat on top.

This brings them close to the bottom of the seat. Although that doesn't create a shorting problem, it remains to be seen if there will be a 'wear issue' should the base of the seat drop over time etc

Ride free, stay safe
