ok let's try this again

I got my bike 2 or 3 years ago. I haven't heard it run yet. The battery I was using to turn it over was a car battery and I had to put it back in a car now my bike is without a battery.


So I am going to get a battery. I am thinking of a sealed one but which one and who's is the best.

Please let me know where to start looking.

Grace and Peace to you!
Richard

Do a topic search on batteries here as this has been discussed numerous times and as usual when asking for opinions on particular items this forum will give them all. The starting point should be an glass mat battery and this has been agreed to a huge degree. Good luck.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.
