Yes I noticed this also.Wow batteries have gone up since this thread started 18 months ago. That same YUASA battery is now around $145. I am need this spring so will be watching for sales.
The bookmark on Amazon keeps showing higher price as I check on it. It started at like 116 bucks now 148 for a GYZ16H
I am just going to wait until spring and bite the bullet.
Not sure why they are going up when people are traveling less. Unless not driving is ruining a lot of batteries and they feel they have a lock on the market?
Or maybe Covid is somehow messing with supplies? Not sure but they are killing us as consumers with the excuse of Covid. While I beleive it does cause us issues I also think it is a excuse to gouge us by companies that are less then honest.
