SSB Powersport battery

As Linton alluded to in another post, he is trying the SSB Powersport dry cell battery. My '05 had an SSB Powersport Superstart Gel battery in it when I purchased the bike 3 1/2 years back. The battery was 18 months old at the time of my purchase so it's about 5 years old now and starts the bike fine still. I keep a Battery Fighter 1.25 amp tender unit on it and switch it on every few days when not using the bike. Hope the Dry Cell product is as good, price certainly looks attractive. For the record, according to the original owner, he got only 3 years out of the original BMW Exide battery, which is probably double the price of the SSB product.

Re: SSB Powersport battery

gotta tell you it spins her over really good 320cca I have 2 battery tenders but they are not for agm battery's I am wondering if that is what caused the moto battery to fail it was about 2 years and a bit old and only stayed good for about 12 months, I also had a battery fighter brand tender, I will replace them with the correct type of tender maybe one of these or one of these this one has desulfator built in.
