+1 & well said.copperstatetour said:This is starting to sound like an oil or tire thread; advice and opinions but no basis in supporting fact. We even have a one-word answer to an 'either - or' question Could it be that we have stumbled onto another topic that will generate the amazing levels of debate that tires and oil do?
The way I see it, two things need to come up as concerns for this topic to really become a tire/oil equivalent:
1. how will the 'wrong' battery kill you
2. how the 'wrong' battery will turn your LT into a smoldering pile of ash!
At least I can dream...
Funny you should ask about batteries; just yesterday I installed a Westco from Beemer Boneyard. It was about $90 delivered; ordered it Wed, got it on Thurs... nice. But I see that you're in the Great White North... take off 'ay.curtamus said:I need a new battery for my K1200LT (2003). Can I purchase a regular bike battery from Costco.

But is it made in Vietnam like my Westco???jkersh1 said:My next battery may be from Battery Stuff:
AGM equivalent of the stock 51913 is $89 including shipping. And it has 'real' terminal posts. I recently replaced the battery on my old Kaw with one from Battery Stuff, and so far so good.
