Replacement Battery

Has anyone changed out their battery on the Rocket III, yet? Bear Man needs to change out his battery. I do not recall anyone discussing battery options.

Thanks for any input. One he was wondering about is an odyssey. I think he has one in his Boss Hoss. Was just wondering if anyone has tried one on their Rocket or perhaps another brand?

I just replaced my battery with the Yuasa YTX20HL-BS Battery. The only differences over stock is the 310 cold cranking amps (I think stock is 250) and it felt a little heavier.

Makes it a lot easier to start on the colder mornings.
Mine made it 18 months. The battery was confirmed totally dead at my neighbors shop. I did NOT have any type of trickle charger on it. (I was warned that the old trickle charger I had would overcharge and damage the newer batteries.) I have since purchased a Deltran Battery Tender and put the the permanent charge cable on the battery so that it isn't a hassle to hook up after each ride.
