Easy replacement better than original

Comments about BikeMaster TruGel Battery (MG12-BS):

This was a perfect fit in my 04 Suzuki VL800. It was great to be able to pull it from the box and install without fooling with acid. I did put on the charger briefly until it indicated full charge but it was 80% as delivered. Cranking power was greater than I have ever seen on this bike. I was really impressed with shipping. After ordering Sunday I had it on Tuesday. Time will tell if it holds charge better than LA.

Comments about BikeMaster TruGel Battery (MG12-BS):

I have a 2000 suzuki marauder 800 that has sat up for years that I decided I would clean up and see if I could get it going. I bought the bike master tru gel battery because of the cca it provides. Glad I did it kicked over that machine and now it cranks every time I hit start. Highly recommend it.

            Comments about BikeMaster TruGel Battery (MG12-BS):

            I have a 2000 Kawasaki ZX6R and while the site says that this battery will fit, it takes a little bit of patience. I may need to fiddle with it some more, but it makes the seat ride about a 1/2" too high. This could be an easy fix, but I bought this because it was on sale and the battery I bought at Wal-Mart this time last year was already half dead cell wise, and I keep it on a tender. I've only had this battery for a few weeks, so I can't vouch for the dependency of it yet, but I do know that it handled starting my bike up in 19 degree weather no problem. Took a little bit of cranking, but it started, other batteries after a bit of cranking in the cold I've noticed need to be recharged. I'll be sure to come back after a month or two of riding to let everyone know how it handles.
