Does it really matter what brand of battery I buy for my 05 vrod? I need a new one and the dealership says i need to buy there battery for over a $100 bucks. Is there a better brand out there? Do I need to spend $100.00 for a battery? Thanks.
But you need a good quality battery like the batterys Harley sells.
There is an indy dealer here,Bohanon that sells the same brand as Harley badged batterys.
I think their battery is $89 plus shipping and tax.
Watch out for Auto parts stores that will tell you that they have a battery that fits your application. I had Two stores try to sell me a wet, "unsealed" battery!
You need a sealed AGM (glass mat) battery.
Not a thing to go "cheap" on. Its deep in the bike, so get a quality one with a long warranty ( 6 months is not long!) My battery from the Triumph dealer has a 2 year replacement warranty. It was $110.
