Question New Battery time

folks, my 2010 R1200RT needs a new battery, it keeps going flat from a full charge after 2 to 3 weeks of standstill even with a trickle attached!

any recommendations on new batteries? also, if you know of a supplier in Sydney as I want to get one before the long weekend.

Thanks - Mark.

Re: New Battery time

Hi Mark... no specific recommendation but I've been looking at the Motobatt batteries online (fleabay) for a while for when I need one...
Put a guy at work onto them and he dropped one in his KTM, reckoned it had never started and run so well.
I dunno, maybe his old battery was just shit.
Been stung once too many times by BMW with the price if their OEM gel batteries.. great battery at ridiculous pricing... I won't be getting another.
Phil Ward found a cheapy for use in his LT a while back... have a look for the thread might get some ideas.
cheers

Re: New Battery time

Thanks Chris, I have been looking on the forum and Odyssey batteries seem to get quite a few mentions as being pretty good. Prices are around $260 which I am not sure if that is good or bad!

Found a couple of stockists in Sydney, will give them a call tomorrow.

Cheers
