I think the part # is EXT15L. Its an outstanding battery. Expect to pay a little over $80.00
FYI, you can still get the ETX15L from Advance Auto for $45. https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15932

changed the rr then stator a week later, of course this was three seasons ago and 12,000 miles.

wib714 I took the readings with a handheld hooked directly to the battery. electrical is a serious downfall of mine. when my stator went everyone explained it to me but I still had to take it to a shop and pay them 40 bucks to diagnose it. then I brought it home and replaced the stator myself!

slimvulcanrider where is your volt meter connected to?

below is a schematic using a standard 5 pole 40 AMP Automotive Relay to wire up the Volt Meter... brown wire to 85, Black wire to 86, pin 30 to Battery, and pin 87to volt meter. (pin 87a is unused)

by adding a relay into the system, you will get more accurate charging readings with out putting a stain on the battery with the engine off.

The extra brown wire and ground on the Volt Meter is used for the gauge back light if so equipped.
