  • Best battery for cca.

    What is the best battery for a high compression Roadstar ? Prefer acid filled. Not the sealed style but.... Will take any recommendations..
    Thanks

    Has this motorcycle battery company been pulling the wool over our eyes? We’ll present the case and let you decide if the published CCA rating sounds right.

      For your year bike the strongest battery you can buy is the Yuasa GYZ20HL AGM. The CCA is 320 and the amp hours is 20. It comes sealed from the factory and is not available in the BS designation. The next one down is the Yuasa YTX20HL BS with 310 CCA and 18 AH. It comes with a separate bottle of electrolyte used to fill the battery.

      I don't think you will find a conventional acid filled battery for the Road Star. Why would you want one of those in your bike anyway?

      Oh and don't believe the 500 CCA claims you see out there - they aren't.

        Thanks for the response guys. I've heard the acid filled ones have better cca's but.... That is probably like getting into an oil thread conversation lol. I just haven't seen much info for us on "batteries " so thought I would check Bing I'm in the need for a new one.

      Somethings to consider when buying a battery: Look for one with a good warranty. Yuasa is a damn good battery, probably the most widely used in the MC world, but they only offer a 1 year warranty. [I learned that one the hard way] If you get a battery that requires you to pour in the acid yourself; be certain to follow the initial charging instructions to a tee! Not doing so can dramatically shorten the battery's life.

        Firm believer in the gel battery. Been running them since they came out. Longer lasting, no acid puking on your bike, and (now) as cheap or cheaper as an acid battery Did you have a bad experience with a gel battery?

          No bad experience with gel. But heard they aren't the best for cold weather and I ride all year. So I need something to withstand my abuse lol.
