I bought the Sears MF DieHard because the store is a few miles from my house, 100% exchange if defective w/o restocking or S&H charges, and I had a wet cell DieHard for 7 years in my VN so I'm hoping the MF will last longer than others.

I purchased the Big Crank (part #55815) from batterymart.com for 54.95 + 10.56 s+h and love it. It's mf and cranks my bike great. It is a big improvement over the Yusa battery. I and everyone else I know that owns the vn750 highly recommends a MF battery as the first thing to do on these bikes. Be sure to check your battery cables and terminals for corrosion or bad spots and replace as needed. Hope this helps.

Whatever kind ya get, even if 95% of the people recommend it as the best ever, remember, batteries can be bad right from the start.
I went with whatever MF brand it is that BatteriesPlus sells. I'm happy with it. The bike sat for a couple months, even without the Battery Tender on it, and it still started up the bike with very little troubles.

The Interstate battery I just got has the Yuasa manufacturer on it. I also looked at the one Advanced Auto sold also. The Interstate listed CCA @ 210 and the Advanced brand was only 190 CCA. It only took half the time to charge it as the instructions listed. :smiley_th

The Big Crank from Battery Mart made a world of difference for my bike. I used to have hot start problems and would wear down the old wet cell battery if the bike hadn't been run for a few days. Now it is just fires right up hot or cold. One of the best things I've done for the bike and my sanity.

Big crank.

Now it is all easy: put the choke on full and touch the button. The first time it started so well the thing almost scarred me; don't worry you will get used to it. Before that, my bike was a 'hard starter' and had to use a charger assist in cold weather.

It could be that any MF battery would do as well, but the price was right on Big Crank. It comes in a Deka box, and really is made by them.

If your looking for a cheap but good rear tire, i went with Duro. So far so good, and they manufacture tires for the big guys. Don't have a long term report yet on the tire but am happy with the thing.

Yep Shark88 need to hear to CCA when buying a battery and hopefully more
actual specific data.
