Bought the Westco 51913 about two months ago, working fine and dandy. I think it's the mid priced option but I'm more than happy as the capacity is slightly higher than the original..

2003 LTE - Odyssey OK?

I have an 03 LTE and it currently has a BMW gel battery... was there when I bought it used. Now needs replacement and I don't want to go the gel route due to charger expense.
I had an Odyssey 680 on my old 2000 LTC and it was great. I would like to go back to the Odyssey on my '03. Is it compatible with the 2003 bike as well?

Thanks for any help I can get.

battery

Thanks for all your input on the battery, it seems as though anything BMW costs $$, no matter aftermarket or BMW brand. Thanks again.

I am very pleased with mine. You will need to drill out the terminals to get your bolts to fit.

What year is your LT? Will this work in the 2003 LT? Is it maintenance-free?

What, if any, are the terminal connection issues with the Odyssey?

There is a connection adaptor that they sell. I just bent the existing connector, it works fine and the price is right.
