New to DRZ, battery dead, what to get ?

Recommended Posts

I picked up a 2000 DRZ400S for my son (and self) and the battery that was weak last fall is now dead and not taking a charge.   I did a search for battery in the forum and did not really find a lot of info. 

 

What is everyone putting in there now ? 

 

I looked at an Interstate Glass Mat (AGM) CYT7B-BS and it was $134 !!

 

Batteries Plus has an AGM  XTA7B-BS for $75.

 

thoughts ?

well...follow Erik's electrical troubleshooting guide in the "stickies" above to narrow down the problem

 

how many miles on the bike?...my first stator went out at 15K, the next at 20K, on my third now with new rectifier as well

 

my bike is an '01 (no free power mod done to wiring either)

 

I just got a new Shorai lithium battery...LFX14...works awesome...have to wait ans see how the new charging system works out

I bought the cheaper yuasa replacement in 07, so far so good.

my stator flamed out around 16k kms, thought it was the battery.

replaced stator, did free power mod, battery still ok.

Free power mod is definitely worth the effort and has a great write up in the FAQ. 

 

a battery tender helps battery life and must for the DRZ.
