    Fit perfectly in my 2002 CBR 1100XX, even though the OEM battery was a 12S and not a 12BS (the BS is about a half inch taller than the S). More cranking amps than OEM and at a fraction of the cost.Plus, who would have expected my smoothest in-store pickup experience ever to be at an auto parts store?! Two thumbs up!

    Had this battery the first one I got lasted for a couple of days then dead & would not hold a charge. The second one ran fine for 7 months & it did a great job too & I was thinking what a great battery it was. The cooler days then hit (late summer) & it would not turn over. Battery only has a 90 day warranty,so,I am stuck with a $50 boat anchor

                This battery is well priced and perfoms as expected. However, plan ahead so you can fill the battery with the provided acid and then charge it for several hours.

                        Motorcycle dealer want a $100.00
                        For a new battery.
                        This save me $$$
                        More than half the price I save.
                        I have the battery for more than a week or so.
                        It can hold charged.
                        DIY the mixture. Easy to follow.
                        Have to wait 10 hours before I can install in my bike.
                        I am good to go!

                          Despite having the Site Search Engine return this battery as an "Exact Fit" there was one major flaw... the connections to the terminals were top or front and the 2007 Suzuki S50 requires the connections to the terminals be on the right and left sides of the battery as viewed from the front. The battery would not "Exactly Fit" my cycle without "rigging" some adapters to relocate the connections and no ready made adapters were available from AAP.

                                I brought this battery in the summer of 13 and filled it with the acid it came with. I never used the battery. Have been charging off and on since on a Battery Tender. today 2/25/13 I figured i would check the level of the acid. NO Acid....... DRY...... NODA..... Should i fill with distill water ? Or buy Acid. Why would it dry out . Never happened in all my years with other batteries.

                                  Hi Charlu, I'm happy to help you! Normally a good battery dries well before its shelf life due to overcharging. If a battery dries out then you don't want to add acid to the battery.You would just want to add distilled water. However I would always recommend to go for a replacement battery as you will not get much out of it even if you could bring it back to life.
