2014-2017 Battery Replacements

I have searched and really haven't found a definitive answer
2014-2017 RT /Liquid Cooled Wethead
Which aftermarket battery has the best Fitment besides OEM? Without modifying anything.

Thankyou in advance for Your replies

Thankyou......
These are pretty good? Will I get at least 2 years out of these batteries?

I have a 2017 RT and the battery is failing.
I have it on the BMW charger every night in the garage

Re: 2014-2017 Battery Replacements

RC51TOFUMAN, I used to believe in trickle charge but I noticed it fail my batteries more then I don't use it so if I don't ride my16 rt often I would start it up once a week or two and let the cooling fan cycle few times before turn it off, don't forget to check your cable ends at the battery terminals especially on positive side it does come lose for some reason.

If you had searched this forum, then you hadn't searched properly! There was a thread on this not too long ago. Anyway, this is your best bet: https://www.walmart.com/ip/YUASA-GYZ...FREE/129243723 It's $101 now, but the last time that I looked it was just $83 through Walmart, like this one. So, Google the same battery and you might find one at lower price. The stock battery in your RT is most likely an Exide, and I am told that the stock battery for the GS/GSA is usually a Yuasa. This particular Yuasa model will deliver a little more power than the stock Exide.

Re: 2014-2017 Battery Replacements

I have had great luck with Yuasa Batteries as PadG posted. Had them in bikes and snowmobiles and they last. I am on the stock battery in my 2016 and it is still doing well. I keep a Battery Tender Plus on it from Nov-Mar each winter.

Must have been a bad battery (or charger)! My bike is always on the CPU type maintenance charger (I use BatteryDoc) as soon as it is parked in the garage. Plugged in via the acc. socket on the RT, and doesn't get unplugged until when I am ready for the next ride. Never had a battery failure. The Exide on my prior '07 RT was replaced preemptively, after almost 6 years, and the one on my '15 was also replaced preemptively, after almost 5 years with the Yuasa thatI had posted earlier. The OEM battery could have lasted a lot longer, judging from how the RT starts before I replaced the battery, as compared to starting later with the replacement Yuasa. Very easy for me to compare, since I always ride with my helmetcam on, and it is always turned on before I start the bike.

Funnily enough, the reason for both of my preemptively replacements in both cases was because I had stumbled on battery at the "right" price! The Yuasa had cost me just $87.
