Stock battery not good?

I recently bought this '08 990. Stock battery. Still starting bike well except this am after camping out in 25F . Jumped off fine and was good to go from there. First no start. Guess it it is about time though.
'08 990 Adventure Orange of course
'00 520 EXC
'14 500 XCW

Sounds about right. They tend to last about 2 winters in my experience. Swap it before it lets you down proper. Beware of cheapo replacements, ok for the summer but bag out first sing of sub zero temps.
