Thanks Chris.

I looked at your site.. the only battery I could find indicates 2001+. Where can I find one for my 2000?

I'm running Odyssey PC680s in all of our Ducs (OK, most... I'll have to get one for the new to me 900SS). They aren't the lightest battery on the market and you'll need to take the rubber pad out of the tray, but it has better starting specs than most others and they take and keep a charge better than anything that I've used. They are also sealed, AGM battery that can't leak acid on your bike.

For more details, they have a web page:

There's a guy who sells them on eBay (with "buy it now" options) for a quite a bit less than batteryweb or others. I've used him with no problems.

i have the odyssey also, but mine's the pc 545 i think.. don't have the info right here.
it is pretty stout.. smaller in dimensions, but heavier.. only had it since spring, no prob so far.. starts when i ask no matter how long sitting (work) or temp (Maine).

Here's a site that sells the Yuasa Yumicron YB16AL-A2, for 00 and before Monsters, for $68.00 plus shipping of $8.00. They come dry so will need electrolyte(acid) added which can be purchased at any auto store. Then they'll need a charge for about 16 hours.

I've used Yuasa YTX7 (teeny, but we'll see how long it lasts)
YTX9-BS (working great)
and YTX-12BS (tight fit)
got the last one from discountmotorcyclebattery.com, the local cycle gear usually has them too.

I jumped on the Odyssey... thanks for the tip, Fillmore. After reading about all the acid spraying batteries on this site, a sealed battery sounds pretty good to me. Should have it in a few days.

No, I didn't know that. :eek:

I guess I would have known that if I spent a few days reading the battery thread, but I had other pressing matters.

Thanks Chris.

no worries, i'm sure there are 10x as many monsters with normal wet cell batteries with acid damage than the dreaded GS sealed batterys. :) i "approve" of those batteries, just have yet to try one. :) :)
