Battery replacement time

Well here it goes my shark is now officially 5 years old and time to replace the OE battery, question which brand do my forum members seem to prefer, I was thinking of going with the Deka EXT30LA which is suppose to be the same as the factory OE battery both have 400 CCA and made in the good ole U S of A, Any opinons would be greatly appreciated thanks everyone.

I don't have the specs handy, but I believe the big crank actually has a higher cca than the stock battery. I just recently purchased one from battery warehouse, $109 shipped, and since I paid with paypal, 6 months to pay it off with 0 interest.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

When my charging issues a couple years ago ate my OEM , I replaced with that battery , was great , but only lasted a bit over a year for me .. So I guess it wasn't so great ..

I replaced with a Throttle X Battery a year ago still running strong. 108.95 shipped but I found a coupon for 15% off at Savy. Probably a Deka.

I'm on my 2nd year of my Shorai LFX36L3-BS12 Lithium Ion and it's been great.

540 CCA and 4.8 Lbs. Hard to beat. I've also had one in my Kawasaki for 3 years with no problem.

Is it Worth It?

This is one time that I find the OEM Harley battery is worth the money. I always get 4 or 5 years out of them (plugged into a tender mostly daily). IMO...

Battery replacement time

I just got back from bike week and while I was there I picked up a flyer for batteries for HD touring at their booth. I do not know anything about the company and did not talk to anyone about it, but here is their webpage info:

Oakridge Global Energy Solutions, Inc.

They state their batteries are made in the US and they are located in Palm Pay, FL. The flyer states their batteries are Lighium-Ion and are a direct replacement for our bikes.
