Great Buy
Pros: Hot out the box Perfect fit in my 71 CB450 Great Power output
Cons: box that it was shipped in was a little beat up and one of the lead connector poles was a little damaged
Other Thoughts: I would definitely buy this again and I will be using this company for all my motocycle battery needs in the future. Sealed batteries at this price with free shipping is unheard of and I love the fact that all I had to do was open the box, install it, and start my bike and ride away.

Scorpion AGM battery YT12C 12v
Pros: No acid leaks. No corrosion. No repainting battery box and frame every few years. Starts instantly. Can sit for months and still start. Much cheaper than Lithium battery. Far less sensitive to charging system than Lithium.
Cons: Heavier than Lithium battery. Don't know what to do with the extra time I now have since I don't have to check and add water to the battery every week.
Other Thoughts: Don't forget to trickle charge it per instructions, before initial use.

Motorcycle Batter
Pros: - Fast Service - Quality Product
Cons: - None
Other Thoughts: This is the second battery I bought from this company and I can't be more pleased. Each time, the product was shipped quickly and the product worked. What more can a customer ask for?

Made all the difference
Pros: Stock battery left me stranded in parking lots and worse, after hot engine stalls at traffic lights. The new gel battery cranks like bike at idle and starts it every time! Amazing.. A life-saver.
Cons: None, unless you enjoy the drama of a dead bike at an intersection.

good product
Pros: Maintenance free, fits where it should, it's about the same price as a flooded battery, WHY NOT get one of these instead? I look forward to not having to check and add water anymore.
Cons: none

a great battery
Pros: love this AGM battery for my honda 650c..as it sits, the voltage is at 13.0. since i don't have to worry about checking water or typical wet lead-acid self discharge, i can leave my seat on all the time! this AGM battery has a higher amp delivery so my honda cranks over easily. i highly reccommend this battery if you can use it. my yuasa died after about 6 months with no use...never going back to wet lead-acid again.
Cons: don't believe there are any.

great product
Pros: Great product so far.....Bike is not on the road yet, so it is not being used daily. The power this battery has is amazing....instantly the bike spun over much better than it ever has in the 15 years I have had it. Great price also!!!!
Cons: none yet.
Other Thoughts: bought this battery online as I had heard other people mention it on the forums as a great upgrade. decided to try it...hopefully it lasts better than a standard battery...if it doesn't, it is still priced better than I can get a standard battery locally.

YT12C sealed battery
Pros: Arrived quickly and fully charged. Just dropped it in and it fit and worked. I was a little worried about the size since this is an older bike and a tight fit. Nice to no longer have a relief tube coming out of the battery
Cons: none yet
Other Thoughts: service was quick and excellent

Pros: User-friendly website with enough attitude to keep one interested. Wide product selection, excellent price points, good client communication, and fast shipping. Geez, I HATE these guys!
Cons: Nothin' yet, but I'm still looking... Nobody's perfect, except me, of course.
Other Thoughts: "I'll be back!"

AGM BATTERY
Pros: Battery fitment was perfect. no issues with the terminals. lots of cranking amps with the new battery. I have had it for 2 months and am very happy with it. Let's see if it holds a charge through the winter.
Cons: weight was about a 1-2 lbs more than the YUASA it replaced. no big deal.

Why did I wait so long
Pros: This battery came good to go. I plugged it in and it started the bike up quicker than in a long time. It fit right in the box without need for spacers.
Cons: Heavy. It seems to weigh (I didn't throw it on a scale) 25% or more more than the lead acid battery I was using.
Other Thoughts: Time will tell. I'll have to see how well it sits on the battery tender over the winter. If it fairs as poorly as the previous battery, then I got a great battery for just as short a time frame for more money, and didn't make a smart choice. It's nice to not need to watch for low water levels, but I don't know if I need to do anything else differently while it sits. "Maintanence" instructions of this sort would be helpful.

Pros: I have not put this battery to the test yet as I am still in the restoration process. What I will say is that these guys do a great job processing the order and getting the shipment out the door. I received my battery in two days from all the way across the country. Great job guys!
Cons: None

Best bike upgrade for older bike
Pros: More CCA than old flooded battery. No more checking fluid levels/breather tubes for junk buildup. Charges like a champ and cranks over every time.
Cons: Costs money? About the same weight as a flooded cell, but that\'s expected.
Other Thoughts: Trickle charged it before stated using it. High beams no longer flicker when engine is not on, yay!

Great Battery
Pros: This is my first AGM battery and I will never go back. The bike cranks faster than flooded, and it sits with no loss. For the price it cant be beat!
Cons: The bike almost cranks too fast. With the old battery it would crank for 3-4 sec and start. Now it cranks so fast it starts in half the time. Really cool, but it kind of sputters to life. I think the compression is higher due to the CRAZY increase in cranking speed. I seems like its starting before the proper fuel air mixture is in the cylinders. I will be more than happy to live with this "problem." :-)
Other Thoughts: Stop reading and just BUY IT!!! You wont regret it.

No more acid spills
Pros: I feel the sealed battery technology makes my life easier. The batteries CCA turned over my 74 CL350 like it was new. Cost was fair.
Cons: None yet
Other Thoughts: I live in a climate where the motorcycle goes away for the winter. Batteries seem to die in the spring. I hope the glass mat technology makes this a thing of the past.

Fantastic Battery
Pros: I was amazed the power this battery holds. I received the battery from the postal service put it in my bike that minute. I started the bike up faster than it ever started. The cranking power was shocking. I have just became a customer for life. I will be ordering my battery for my other bike as soon as it needs it. Price is a bargain, quality top notch and fit like a glove. I'm saying this as all bikers know. Getting stuck with a crappy battery on the road. This will not let you down. Thank you
Cons: no problems
Other Thoughts: This is the best review I have ever placed on any site. The most I have ever said was Thank you if I got what I paid for or I would tell them what they don't want to here. I trusted you after reviewing your products. I received more than I expected and now will be your customer for life.

Terrific as always.
Pros: I don't know how many batteries I've bought from BatteryStuff, but just like always, this YT122C Adventure Power works great. I've been using AGM batteries from BatteryStuff for all my motorcycle restorations. High reliability. Great cranking power. No acid splash. No worries. They do the job better than OEM wets. From BatteryStuff they cost less than wet batteries from any local supplier.
Cons: Can't think of a thing.
Other Thoughts: I make sure I keep my AGM's on a conditioner when I park in the garage, and I never worry about them. They always work, and last far longer than wet cells.

YT12C
Pros: I just got it recently and its now on a charger. My maintainer charger says it already has more than 80% charged. I look forward to not having to worry about acid level when its on a trickle type charger. It means that it is ready when I'm ready to ride.
Cons: I don't have any negative thoughts at this time.

Scorpion AGM Battery YT12C for Honda CM400C
Pros: I bought this battery as it came so highly recommended on a certain Honda Twins forum, I bought it Friday before 4th of July weekend (4th was Monday) and it showed up on Tuesday. Pretty awesome shipping here, and the price couldn't be beaten, then there was the free shipping....
Cons: no Cons, all Pros!

Excellent battery still going strong
Pros: Has held charge for ~2 years with regular use on my Honda CMX 450, March - November; trickle charge during winter months. I mistakenly allowed it to completely discharge during first year of ownership but it later took a full charge and no issues afterward.
Cons: None
Other Thoughts: Also purchased BatteryStuff charger for wintertime trickle charging; works great.
