I recently bought a 990 2007 and sounds the battery is going to die soon. Do you have any recommendation in terms of reliability?
Quality = £, so what are the best compromise on the economical aspect?
Personally I'd just make sure it's a sealed battery , i'm not sure if it's worth the £££ for a top premium gel battery?? maybe some-one can comment. I know I got a cheap sealed battery for another bike and when it had fuelling problems it could crank for ages and ages i.e. the battery was very very good.
If you rely on the bike in winter and it's parked outside and/or are going some-where very cold then it's probably worth buying the best battery you can afford.
Check the voltage when you recieve it, if it's below 12 start worrying and/or take it back and I plugged my optimate into mine fo 20hours for a full charge straight from new that may help also. Plus don't leave it flat ever. that damages them.
