PostSubject: OEM Yamaha Battery   Sun Jun 16, 2013 8:15 pm

What is the life of an OEM yamaha battery? I still have the original from 08. I put a battery tender on it for 8 hrs before a ride and its at 100%, but it freaks me out every time I stop..is it gonna start? Every time it does. Is it just gonna bonk out one of these days without warning? Feels like I'm rollin the dice. Thanks guys

I've had this one since February. I don't think I'd recommend it if you've got the money get the right one but I haven't had any problems so far. The stocker will give you a little warning and that's it. When you go to start it will hesitate then turn over or it won't turn over at all and you have to turn the key back then it will start. Mine went out at the worst possible time. We turned it off to shoot a bobcat and went to turn it back on to go get the dog and it would just make a clicking noise. The gauge was flashing on and off.

5 years is approaching old age for a battery. Mine lasted for 6 or 7 and was completely dead as a doornail,come spring one year, even being on a battery maintainer for the winter.  The Rhino uses a U1 form factor. A battery store can get you set up with an equivalent. That is also a popular size for wheel chairs as was also mentioned in this thread. Just make sure that the battery + & - terminals are oriented correctly, as that can be an optional thing on the "U1" size.

Mine lasted almost four years ,I was using a trickle charger to keep it going finally. I changed it then it was fine. About a year later I had a battery charging problem and the stator failed, I blame it on the delay in replacing the battery. Replace the battery if it gives you trouble or about four years or what ever comes first. Just my opinion. I have a lawn tractor battery in mine, I did see the wheelchair and maybe next time.

im running 2 batteries.  the stock sized one and a full on car battery.  Never had a problem and that gives plenty of reserve to draw from when plowing or winching alot.

i can get an oddessy pc925 for 150 new cash,  but if the interstate wheelchair battery is around 30, seems like a better deal to me. I know the oddessy kicks ass, so for the guys with the wheelchair battery are you able to run lights, power steering, and stop on the trail a have a beer and listen to some tunes? I thought about 2 batteries but the added weight on my stock motor is too much, but if I lost 25lbs then I could run 2 batteries..lol

Too much beer and too many tunes might leave you stranded, unless you have an isolated auxilliary battery. This is true no matter how big a battery you have, and depends on how much beer you have. Probably not much of a problem if you are judicious about your layovers.

I doubt that the weight of a 2nd smaller battery would affect you much. If you lost 50 lb, then you could use a humongous truck battery under the seat? Laughing

What I got was an automotive duty U1 battery from one of the of the local battery stores, Battery Exchange or something like that. I believe it cost be around 50 bucks. The U1 is used in the later model (if not all) Mazda Miatas. The PC 925 is a top of the line battery but I dont think it will last 3 times longer. I'm also not sure about the lawn tractor service ones, I had a smaller one in my lawn tractor and it only lasted a year and a half. The next one has been going for 2 years so far, so good. Being drained and left sitting is the worst thing that you can do to them (deep cycles as well). It boils down to personal preference and the need for that warm fuzzy feeling vs. the fat wallet feeling. scratch scratch

If that was the difference that I had to pay, I believe that I would opt for the PC925, espcially on a single battery setup. Have you scouted around online? Batteries are heavy, so you definitely would have to consider the shipping expense, but you might win out.
