Sure Dan, its a Yuasa YTX14-BS, MFG# M3RH4S.
Yuasa was recommended by many on Adv and I did not know until yesterday that it is an AGM
(absorbed glass mat) battery. Gonna use this one as my primary unit and warranty the OEM one as a spare.

I used the Yuasa YTX12-BS ordered from:
http://www.derbycycles.com/cgi-bin/e...=Yuasa&count=1
It cranks better than stock and is the same size.

$130

The Yuasa is a sealed battery. You add the acid and then put on the adhesive coated caps.
A few have reported the battery tray cracking and indeed mine has as well. I plan on getting it welded and reinforced. I wanted the same cranking amps and plan on using the Tube Tool Box mounted low.I kinda regret not getting the Odyssey though...

I bought a PC310 and regret it.

I wish I had bought a Braille like I did for my KTM 950 Adv.

That battery can crank whereas the Odyssey is anemic and rarely registers over 12.3v despite frequent riding.

This is what I hooked up in my SM610. The stock battery, a Yuasa YTZ 7S, & a RC51 battery to compare.

You can see from the pictures this was 07 and the little battery is still going strong, it's always cranked the bike over better than the stocker. As an aside after 3 years on the shelf the Varta is still alive, I had to toss it in the garden tractor this spring for a day.



A bit of foam to fill the space.



Ready to button up.

PC310. About $150 mail order. Lighter than stock. Hope this leads to no battery tray cracks; we'll see. Also cranks the engine just fine and, now that I have some miles on the bike, will start it while in gear (if hot).

Came across this in the TE thread index.

I just bought an '07 TE610 with 4,300 miles on it, and during a ride in southern NM the oem Varta gave up the ghost.

Checked out a few of the mentioned replacements, and ended up going with the Yuasa YTZ14S.
Same footprint as the YTX14BS, but around an inch shorter - giving me room to put some stout foam underneath.
Battery tray still in good shape, btw.

Any more feedback on a great replacement battery for the 610? price isn't much of a factor. Weight and longevity is though.

The Yuasa YTZ and YTX are both good replacements. The YTZ is "factory activated" (comes charged) and ready to drop in. The YTX - dealer adds chemicals and charges, you drop in. The YTZ can be installed at any angle.

The '11 TE 630 comes with the Yuasa YTX, btw.

I put in a Yuasa this spring, to replace the ailing Varta. Went with the 14 series rather than the 7, just to have that extra oomph for multiple starts over short periods. It works great.

battery...

I put in an Odyssey 310, had no complaints, the bike could sit for months b
nd then crank and crank and crank. Also the cracks in the battery tray stopped growing.

Just picked up a TE630 and am likely to get the Shorei or Ballistic Litium LiP04 unit....

Thanks for the replys! I to am looking at the lithium iron batts. Anyone have experience with them? Any issues in mild cold? 30f or higher?

they are expensive, but worth it due to weight savings...
