Hey, Just changed my battery last night, easy change out. I'm happy :cheers: to have gotten 4.5 years out of the OEM factory unit. Who out there holds the record for OEM battery before change-out? TIA diggerdog

Hmm, I've got 4.5 years and still going strong. I ride it all year long and almost always for at least 20 minutes so I guess it stays charged up. I'm contemplating adding heated gloves though so that might give it more of a workout.

4.5 years is reasonable and no one would quibble with that.
I sold my old Lardy with the original OEM battery still going fine - so 6 years.

I think everyone would get better battery life if the bikes were fitted with a MOSFET regulator/rectifier rather than the crude device fitted which I reckon can give the battery a bit of a battering. Of course, regular use, no short trips and the use of a quality battery tender all help.

My K3 400 has the original battery (date stamped 01/03) at 24,500 miles, still going strong. Kind of surprising, though I had a 1990 Miata in which the stock AGM battery lasted 12 years...
