Would you buy an after market battery?

My funds are low and I need a battery for my other scoot (96 Fatboy). Is it worth it to save $50 and buy an after market battery?

I never buy batteries from the dealer, it's not like HD makes batteries, they just make money off of them. You can buy the same battery for half the price.

Absolutely. I bought a Dekka shipped to my house for $100. Dealer wanted $175+ tax. Same damn battery too.

Every scoot battery I've replaced has been a yuasa, never had a lick of issue with them. Not the cheapest of the aftermarket offerings, but a very good one.

Thanks for the help. I'm buying it online from Battery Mart. It's for my 96 Fatboy. I'm getting the Big Crank ETX16L for $89.95 + free shipping.
