Wow have the prices gone up on the Yuasa MF batt. Cheapest one I could find within 50 miles of my location was $117.00. Seems that last year they were around 80 bucks. At this rate by next year we may have to take out a loan........

I got mine from Wal-Mart for 66 bucks. Subtract 9 for the trade in and it's 57. And yes, it is a MF battery.
The only downside is the polarity on the battery is backwards from normal but the cables on the bike are long enough to reach if you put the battery in facing the opposite direction from normal. Works like a charm!!

I have nothing but good things to say about The Big Crank ETX15L Battery. With the Iridium plugs, my bike starts with a slight touch of the button (hot or cold.) Really holds its charge too.
