Often some of the battery dealers have seconds in batteries they ll sell you. Just means that it's doesn't look perfect or the post might have a nick in it. I know where I live I can go to all state batteries and buy one for 20 bucks. Doesn't mean that it's not going to last for along while. Once you re scooter going stop by a battery place and ask them to do a test on it. it's free and can tell you how good it is . Load test is what it's called.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways totally worn out shouting WHAT A RUSH, WHAT A RIDE.
