Cheap Batteries

When you have to buy a new battery every two years.. That's cheap..

Just replaced the Odyssey PC680 in my 03 R1200CLC $95.00

Code date on the old battery is 1105 I assume it was installed when the stock battery crapped out after it's two years of service life....

Code date on the new battery is 0413

Now try to tell me those things don't last any longer than the cheap ones..

Nice 7 years of service.. Thanks Odyssey !

I also felt guilty and flushed the brakes and blew out the air filter...

Lindy got me an Airhawk for the unbearable seat.. So I might actually ride this bike now..

Re: Cheap Batteries

Yeah, I saw the thread about that battery and bought one as well. $95 delivered is darn good. The battery on my '07 RT seem to be the original one, and it still works quite well, but to me, $95 for a good battery is good insurance. I'll keep the old one charged and on the shelf for spare.
