I discovered that my battery and Desiree's Stryker battery are dead. Calling the dealer to get a new one today. It's been a number of years since I've replaced, which for AZ is REALLY good for a motorcycle battery. Also going to order new tires. I'm vaccinated and wanting to get out into the world a bit more.

I attempted to put a battery in that I picked up from O'Reilley's since my dealer was going to take two weeks to get one. The one from O'Reilly's was too wide, so I took it back. Tried AutoZone, but it was the same size. Ended up ordering a Yuasa from Amazon. It's supposed to be here Monday.

Desiree's battery fit just fine. It was tight, but fit.

Hopefully it won't be the same width at the two others.  Good luck.

    It's not. I just pulled a Yuasa battery out of my Raider and one of the first comments on Amazon was from another Raider owner raving about the battery. This is my preferred battery. I am wondering if I am going to regret getting Desiree the one from O' Reilley's.

    Good to hear about yours, hopefully the O'Reilley's battery will be good also for Desiree's ride.

      Plugged her in to the battery tender. It's been raining for the past week here so I haven't had much riding lately. Hooked up the battery to keep it alive while she's idle.
      Sometimes it's a little better to travel than to arrive.
