KLR Battery

I am looking to get a new battery for my Killer and not looking to spend a lot of money. Are the AGM batteries any good???

Sealed AGM is all I would put on a KLR. KLRs are known for boiling a battery in summer and require constant PM to keep them from drying out. I replaced mine with an AGM and never had another problem with it.

I am finding them on eBay for about fifty bucks. Does that sound about right.

I can't find the site I bought mine from... But you are earning the KLRista Title with ease!!!

That is cheaper than what I see on the sites I've searched... Sometimes you get what you pay for...

I fried up two of them on my DRZ... Then I figured the stator was going out. So probably not the battery's fault.
