      Comments about BikeMaster TruGel Battery (MG12-BS):

      Hard to rate a battery after only a week, so I'm giving it 5 stars for now and I'll come back and update this or write another review if it fails to meet expectations down the road (literally). I liked that this battery is already sealed, no acid to mess around with, just drop it in and hook it up. The price was a little more than other batteries, but I chalked that up to the price of convenience. [...] Keep up the great work, Bandit!

      Great Battery!

      Comments about BikeMaster TruGel Battery (MG12-BS):

      This morning I went out to start my 1994 VFR 750 which I had left sitting outside under a bike cover for the last 2 1/2 months (in the winter) without starting it once. I was concerned that I would have to recharge the battery or possibly jump start the bike as the weather is freezing and starting a carburated motorcycle that has been sitting that long is always difficult. To my surprise the battery just kept cranking until the motorcycle started up without the cranking speed slowing down much at all. I would estimate it took over 5 minutes to get it rolling but this battery did the job.

      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.

      Very powerful battery at a fair price

      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.
