Hi, Everyone;
The battery on the Grey Lady (My '03 Voyager) is not long for this world, and I am looking for a replacement. I have the usual requirements (same size and capacity as OEM, must be maint. free-Prefer gel if I can get it, must come with acid installed. I DO NOT want to mess around trying to pour acid in a battery!) USA or Japanese manufacturer, no chinese junk I am boycotting chinese made stuff, and yes, this is a personal preference. My best bet right now is a Yuasa battery on Bike Bandit. I was wondering if any of the gentlemen or ladies out there knew of a good place to look. Unfortunately, Cost IS an issue. Thanks for your help!!

Re: Batteries...

You might want to check if Deka makes a battery to fit. They're sometimes sold under other brand names such as Big Crank. They are usually a very good battery for the price and are American made. As you may know, often the cheapest batteries tend to be more expensive in the long run since they don't last as long. BTW, be sure that Yuasha isn't made in China, just because it's a Japanese brand, that doesn't guarantee it's made in Japan.
