Odyssey Battery
« on: July 08, 2014, 06:16:23 pm »
Anybody tried an Odyssey Battery in their trophy?

I had one on my RT and it cranked faster and I rarely put in on a charger.

Like you I had one in my RT and never had an issue with it. Haven't tried one in my Trophy, but I think that may be the battery I go with when the time comes.

I haven't seen the need to buy a new one yer.  When my battery gave out it was replaced under warranty with another Yuasa.

Since the Yuasa in my Suzuki lasted over 5 years  (I replaced it just 'cause it was 5 years old, not failing yet) I will probably stick with the same.  But I've heard that Odyssey makes great batteries for off-road vehicles (I own a Jeep), so I will check into those when the time comes.  Hopefully I'll get another 4 years out of the OEM battery on the TT.

I've had exactly 2 Yuasa batteries in my 2001 Triumph Sprint.  I replaced the first one after 6 years not because it was bad but because I was headed out on a 12000 mile round trip to Alaska and back.  Second one is now nearly 7 years old.  Yuasa normally makes a good battery. Triumph just got a bad batch for the Trophy.

I fitted a Deka power sport battery to the ST1100 6 years/100,000kms ago, still fires up as good as new.  I would consider one of those if mine needed replacing.

Yeah, I've heard very good things about the Deka as well!
