PostSubject: Where to get a battery cheap?   Sun Apr 03, 2011 10:32 am

Before anyone says how great an Odyssey or the like that is very expensive is, please read on.

As you may or may not know, we are living in Germany for a bit, but are coming home for a DS ride (WARPED for any ADV inmates running around). Obviously, we're taking the WR out of storage. Obviously the OEM battery is dead (been out of the bike for close to a year and a half now and my buddy says it won't hold a charge).

Anyway, I need to get a really cheap battery to last essentially 4 or 5 days. The bike is going back in storage after this for possibly another year or so before it is ridden again, so it makes absolutely no sense to buy a high roller battery and it won't be able to be put on a tender and will be removed completely.

That said, the cheapest I can find is bit over $100!?!?!?! Any ideas or solutions for me?

Thanks!

Interesting. Anyone have any experience with this vendor? And do the 250F and 450F share the same battery as the 250R?

I don't think so. I'm nearly certain the WRR/X takes the same battery as the XT's, a Yuasa YTZ7S.

Edit: I think this Power-Sonic is the one we ordered, around $50 from the dealer:

And strike what I said about the F models, here's an application list:

I got one at batteries plus for under $100, I think it was $85-$90, somewhere in there. my wife has a 2009 KLX140L that we bought brand new, her battery is identical to mine in size and terminals and for some reason there is a piece of tape on hers that has hand written WR450F on it. not sure why that is on there and I'm not sure if it is the same battery for a WR450F.

Thanks for all the info guys! I think I've got enough ammo to figure out what I need.

I changed the desktop on one of the computers to this in celebration of getting home:
