I used this for a old MTD Lawn Mower that had a very narrow battery slot. It worked really well. While selling it it was started maybe 70+ times and the last time it sounded as strong as when it was new!
It comes with the everything needed to fill it including the acid but you will need a slow charger that puts out no more than 2 amps.

        I bought one for my Honda Goldwing GL1100 in the Spring of 2013. It lasted until the fall of 2014. I've had batteries last a lot longer but they cost a lot more. I've paid more and had them last less. I always put a battery tender on when it's going to sit for a few weeks or over the Winter. It seems to be hit or miss on getting a good battery for motorcycles. For the price it's not too bad.

        Bought this as a motorcycle battery. First one lasted 18 months. Second one lasted 6 months. Both were kept on a battery tender. I'm switching to AGM batteries. 90 day warranty is not adequate.

            Watch Out for Online Chat "Experts"

            Comments about AutoCraft Powersports Battery, 50-N18L-A2, 260 CCA:

            First, the battery fits perfectly in my second hand, MTD lawn tractor and it cranks strongly. That's the most important part. The rub came with the online chat "expert." I saw that the battery "Includes acid pack" and when you're buying a lead acid battery, that's a very good thing. Just as I read that, the window popped up asking if I wanted to use the online chat. I figured "Great, perfect timing," and asked the expert if I would need to fill and charge this battery. He promptly told me "No, the battery will be ready when you arrive to pick it up at the store." Needless to say, it wasn't. I found that out when I pulled it out of the box to install it in the tractor. I went back to the store, which had closed early due to a power outage so I went home and online to have a "chat" with the online expert who told me that I needed to "return the battery to the store to have it filled and charged," but to call them first. The next day I called the store and the young man there informed me that "we don't do that here, but if you fill it, we'll charge it up for you." I was a bit upset and called the Advance Auto Parts customer service line. The man there was quite helpful, agreed that the site should say something more than "Includes acid packs" for the ignorant purchasers, like me, who have never purchased a "sports battery" before and generously sent me a $35.00 gift certificate for my trouble. All in all I am pleased with the purchase, but the online chat people should take note, ask questions don't just jump on an answer.

                    Re:50-N18L-A2 battery: Mine came with no instructions but I had filled the same model battery before. Although this battery has the same model number it is physically different from my prior 50-N18L-A2 battery. This battery has seven caps instead of the six of the prior battery. Six caps are on one row and the seventh cap is in the middle of the second row. Filling the six caps to the lower level seems to evenly distribute the acid. So when do use seventh cap? Is it for topping off or is it for maintenance?

                      CCA is the maximum amperes that can be continuously removed from a battery for 30 seconds at 0°F before its voltage drops to unusable levels. A 550 CCA battery can supply 550 amperes for 30 seconds at 0°F. This rating is only useful in the selection of engine starting batteries.
