6 years? Thats better than most. If I were you I would start looking for a battery bargin now and have it nearby. The price of lead has sky rocketed in the last year so do not be shocked when you price a new battery.

If it starts the bike okay keep it, But I would still start shopping for a new one to have close by. You can start here http://www.beemerboneyard.com/westco12v20p.html
