Local dealers,

I am thinking of getting the PC 680 for my RT.
You can go for a short ride and pick up in Detroit for a lot less.

That's a pretty good price for Canada. Maybe I will see about picking one up.

Garry, I have ordered 2 Panasonic batteries from Digi-Key. A good company to deal with. I found the PC1220 that I had for my '97 R1100RSL did not often have the start up voltage to initiate the old style ABS, after the first year. Have a big one in the R100 for a couple of years and it is doing good though.

Have the Panasonic in the LT for 4 years, no problems with it so far.

Got my Odyssey yesterday from them. Placed the order on-line, they phoned back to say they were shipping via parcel post rather than courier to save me some money.
Was delivered within 3 days of placing the order.
It was pre-charged just like Odyssey claims. I put my Battery Tender Plus on it and it was recharged fully overnight.
Now all I have to do is rip the bike apart and get it installed!!

So you intend to do more ridding before the snow flies?

Re: Odyssey PC-680 batteries supplier

I bought my 680 from Matt Dynes in Whitby- the best price I found, with tax included.
He met me at Yorkdale for pickup.
Later I bought a CyTek charger from him too.
