    My <1yr old HD battery is toast. Which battery do you guys prefer? Anybody try the $25 ebay ones?

    I go along with Interstate too. They are made in USA by Yuasa, and have a 6 month no BS guarantee. They keep the battery rack full at the shop and I pay as they are used. Good deal. I think a $25.00 Ebay battery is probably junk. The Interstates go for about $95.

    Get you a battery tender , they are worth the money . My battery in my SS is 2 yrs old and is still strong. The last battery i bought was the stock one from H-D and cost $ 79.00, that was 2 yrs ago.

    I've had better luck with the stock HD battery. I got a yuasa platinum battery and it struggled on starting the bike. I bit the bullet and replaced it with a HD battery and it was night and day difference. The bike cranked over with no hesitation.

    With the yuasa battery the bike would pause for a second before cranking over.
