Hey guys,

To promote my website and new ebay store, I am auctioning off a brand new Odyssey PC545. The starting bid is $15, with free shipping to the winner.

To see the bid, visit http://www.Ebay.com and type in 190135757353 in the search bar, which is the ebay item number.

This battery typically retails around $120. It fits many harleys, and replaces the YTX20L-BS(although its 3/4" shorter than the 20L-BS, it is a much stronger battery.)

The PC545 puts out a whopping 545 Cranking amps! Out of our brick and mortar store, anytime someone complains about sluggish starting due to the high compression of the Harleys, I recommend the Odyssey. And so far everyone has been extremely impressed.

Odyssey makes a variety of batteries for many different applications. The batteries along with specs and dimensions can be viewed here:

Unfortunately it will not fit the V-rod, but it will fit most soft tails. It matches almost perfectly with the YTX20L-BS. It is just 5/16 inch shorter, but it packs much, much more power.

Odyssey does not presently make a battery for the V-rod. The best battery for the V-rod is the ETX14 which is made by Deka here in the United States.

Which can be found here:

My '85 Vmax had what was the 2 brush starter. Hard to turn over. The bike would hardly crank. Then I put an odyssey battery in it. No more problems ever again. When I 1st got the V Rod I looked around the odyssey website to see what my future would hold. I thought I did find one that would fit (though it was smaller).

BTW, I never charged the odyssey. I let it sit there all winter unattended to. The guys on the Vmax list said this was the best thing to do with this battery and that charging it would be bad for it. I found that to be true. Never had to charge it.

When I need a new battery I'll be finding an odyssey to put in BotRod.

Joshua, I see thats AGM. Isn't that the exact same construction that Harley uses? Sweet deal on the battery.

Max, I was talking with a Deka rep at a boat show last summer and was told that Deka made the batteries for HD and they are AGM.

Here is what I will probably do whenever my stock 2004 battery ever wears out. What I would like to know is the specs on the stock battery vs. the Deka battery vs. the Odyssey battery. Here are the specs for the odyssey battery:

Odyssey PC535
535 cranking amps
1000 amps short circuit current
21 minute reserve capacity at 25 amp load
Length = 6.70"
Width = 3.90"
Height = 6.125"
Weight = 12.0 pounds
Terminals = M6 bolt
