Mighty Max Battery

I just put a Mighty Max Battery in my 07 X. Anybody running that specific battery? It was only $35 so I figured what the hell. If it's crap and doesn't last long I'm only out the $35. Thanks.

Just a typical POS Chinese battery...under a different label.

Not as good as a Yuasa, but also a third of the price.

Yuasa's last about 3 years, these last a year or two at best.

Still ahead of the game money wise...

Is be pumped if it lasted 2 years. Thanks.

I was in the same boat as you back in 2009 when I bought a new LTR 450 quad. (I know some people hate quads but they are a blast in the sand, which is the only place I ride it). Its stock battery immediately failed. I figured what the heck, I bought a 25 dollar AGM (probably Chinese) battery from ebay and it has worked perfectly for me ever since. I do try and throw it on a trickle charger for 30 min ish every month or so during the winter though. Summer I don't care about charging it due to riding it and the warmer weather. Hope you have as good as luck as I have. I guess they are not all bad. Although when my stock battery on my 08 450X fails, even though I had good luck with the ebay battery, I will go Lithium to save weight.

So a 30 min trickle from a regular trickle charger is what your supposed to do with these type batteries?

Its worked great for me. I have a Craftsman battery charger that has a 2A setting which is what I use. I always check the voltage before and after. I only charge them for about 30 min tops, sometimes not at all if the voltage is still good, near 12.6. I have always used this for all my toy batteries and get unbelievable long life out of all of them. My wifes quad battery is over 7 years old, my quad battery is also 7 Y old. I have 2 jet skis which I do this also to and one of those is over 10 Y old. The other one had gone for about 7Y or so before it quit and I replaced it 3Y ago and its still going strong. I did buy a crappy Batteries Plus battery years ago for my ski and it only lasted 8 m. Never again. It had a 6m warranty, and they woulnt help me out in any way. And my 08 450X battery is original equipment so its about 8 Y old. The jet skis and 450X batteries are standard lead acid batteries and the ones in my quads are both AGM batteries. All going strong.

      Anyone having or had problems with the starter not turning over easily on the 450X???
      I have read about this problem on CRF's ONLY and not seen anyone come up with a fix.
      Problem being is that you think there is a problem with the battery, when infact the battery is OK. When you have a good fully charged battery in the bike and press the e-start, it turns over very slowly.
      I have checked the electrical circuit and it seems OK. I am wondering if it might be the starter itself - any suggestions?????

      I've studied the Jetting sticky's but still have a number of questions:
      I bought my '06 a couple of years ago and had a smog block-off kit installed and the pilot jet was upsized to a 48 and the air box opened up top only. The bike has appeared to run a little lean at times and got hot on a couple of occasions in elevation and on one other occasion. I'm looking at upping the main jet to either a 165 or 170 to help with the possible lean condition. The bike currently has a 142 main jet in it which I believe is the stock size. It looks like the most widely used Needle Jets are the JD Red, but it doesn't look like they are sold separately, is this correct?
      I was going to also get a 45 pilot to have options for further tuning. My assumption is that every bike is a little different and that where you ride is going to have a lot to do with jetting. We ride mostly, mojave desert, baja, and southern Utah with elevations from sea level to 9,000 feet but the higher elevations are generally for a short period as we generally continue through the peaks and head back down.
      I'm looking to convert from a stock exhaust to possibly an FMF Q4. I want something a little throatier but not overly loud and will provide a balanced flow of intake/exhaust.
      So can I get the JD Red Needle Jet by itself or can I get by using the stock and move the clip and be just as happy. I'm just looking to enhance overall performance of the engine and maintain reliability.
