My 2002 1800 has hit the 2-year old mark. Many wingers, and a couple of Honda dealer service guys, have told me that 2 years is replacement time for an 1800 battery. Our GWRRA chapter director's 1800 was 2 years and one month old when his battery "died" in the Smokies of N.C.
What's the best battery to go with?? I've heard everything from "get one at Walmart", to "got mine at AutoZone", to "get an Interstate"..... I'm not wealthy, but I don't mind paying for the "best" battery.... I don't want to stop at a rest area in the middle of nowhere and my battery is dead. Should I go back with the OE from the Honda dealer?
Thanks for any and all advice...... Ride Safe.... Stobby.

batteries

well the best i can offer is that almost any motorcycle battery that is wetted only when you buy it will be ok in other words it is does not already have acid in it . they put it in when you buy it. but things like brand name go along way as far as reputation goes ..when i change mine out it will be replaced with an interstate but that is my opinion of a good battery.because the ingredients make or break the recipe if you catch my drift..

The Wing battery is a 3 year warranty item. Mine made it 22 months before it started losing power on start up. It never did check out completely, but my dealer replaced it for me. :)

My battery is over 3 years old and still going very strong, when i hook up my battery tender it goes into the float mode very quickly.
However, i will order a new yuasa
