Re: Very good battery price..$41.68!!!
I bought that battery last year as a replacement for the Westco that came with my bike when I bought it (used) in 2003. I never seem to get around to putting the battery on a tender over the off-season, and always have to charge it come spring time. Bad for the battery, I know. But the Westco survived until last year, when it just didn't want to turn the engine over well, even after a full day of riding.
Per my standard MO, I let the new Universal sit in the bike all winter. I was not at all surprised to find it dead this spring. The difference is that this battery truly died, and fully resisted all attempts at resuccitation.
I'm sure it will do better than one season with proper maintenance, but unless I just got a "bad" one, it wasn't as good as the Westco
