Bike Master maintenance free battery

Has anyone tried the Bike Master maintenance free battery YTX14AHL-BS, I'm looking at $65 included shipping

It's time to get rid of the stock battery. I'm sick of filling (distilled of coarse) it all the time and now it won't hold a charge for more than a few days. I had it on the battery tender last night and it still had very little juice. I shouldn't get too mad, it did last me 3 years and almost 40K miles.

Nope.

I did get a DEKA from Tri-State Battery a couple of years ago and it's been great. Fits without modifyng anything. Free shipping and about 3-4 days to get accross the US.

ETX15L DEKA PowerSport

Seems kinda pricey.

I bought this battery last year for my KLR and am very happy so far.

AGM Battery
