Batteries...

Hey guys, you may see me on here talking about my bike or looking at others. Well I own a company that designs and manufacturers dry cell batteries and we are currently working on motorcycle batteries. I was curious what you guys spend on your normal batteries and if there is any interests in a long lasting battery that has no liquid with absolutely no corrosion. We do a decent selection of Mobile Audio/driving batteries now, but want to step it up a bit. Let me know what ya think, if you want to bash me, please pm me thanks,

Kent, Owner H&K Audio/SPL Cell

I spent approx. $80 for my battery for my VTR.

Being a Jeeper, I'm very familiar with the dry cell/gell cell batteries. They work very well.

If you could increase the CCA available for our bikes, and the price was reasonable, I'd be interested.

Thanks for the feedback guys,

Eric, I am thinking the exact same as you are on getting a little more from our tiny batteries. Thats really something we work on with car audio too. Need more power in smaller sizes. Its hard but can be done, lol.

Thanks for your prices

Ya I want to get things done before the spring for myself also! lol.

I guess I have another question. Does any of you know the most expensive battery also? Am very interested in the price ranges for our bikes. Thanks for the time guys.

I've always purchased Yuasa's and they've lasted several years. My '02 Shadow still has the original. I pay about $80, but that is somewhere around dealer cost.

Let us know how you make out!
