battery happiness
Pros: this battery looks real good, even though it is made in china, i would prefer to buy U.S. Quality products . it has no vent tube, so one less aggravation --and it is A.G. M. so yahoo super ! no leaky acid on the frame .
Cons: I'm not sure how well it will charge compared to my standard flooded battery. It has not been put into service yet . i will say more once it has been tested.
Other Thoughts: Yes, i am so happy with the 40 watt 2.2 amp solar panel i got from battery stuff .com , it does a great job of charging my junky old motorcycle battery ,even when it is barely 25 % charged. of course you gotta have enough sun to get the full 20 + volts from the panel . all in all ,so far all the products i got from you people is far out solid ! thank you --- E.W.

AGM battery for Vstrom 650 AND Vulcan 500
Pros: Vstrom Battery fit and my bike starts. Installation was easy. What else can I say? My wife\'s Vulcan 500 battery was also easy to install. Both work great and I don\'t have to check the water. Since we\'re on vacation, that is really important. The price was right and batteries were shipped promptly.
Cons: None
Other Thoughts: I'll stick with AGM. Price was right on Scorpion.

Bmw G650GS Sertao
Pros: Bought to replace the crap original BMW lead/acid battery for my 2012 Sertao. BMW should be embarrassed at sending out a dual sport with such a lame battery. Installation took 3 minutes as my bike was already prepped for battery. Started with a simple push of the started button, 1/2 second crank time. The old battery took up to 4 seconds to crank when weak and 2 seconds when fully charged. ( Did I mention .. shame shame shame on your BMW.)
Cons: none that I can see.
Other Thoughts: AGM is the way to go.

AGM Battery for BMW F650GS
Pros: First of all, I highly recommend an AGM or other maintenance free battery for this bike, since access to the battery is fairly inconvenient. In fact, I think the dealer failed to service the original battery since it was "too difficult" to get at which is what caused the failure of the original battery, although I may be wrong in that regard. I consider Battery Stuff to be excellent to do business with, as they are both price competitive and very good at shipping quickly. What more could you ask for. From my perspective, a much better deal than a 75 mile round trip to the dealer to pay more!
Cons: Nothing negative, although it would be better if the batteries were free.
Other Thoughts: Thanks guys!

vvvvvvrrrrrrrrroooom
Pros: this battery arrived promptly and was a cinch to use since there is no need to add acid. i simply dropped it in hooked it up and she was ready to fire up those pistons
Cons: only problem i incurred was that the positive/ negative labels were on the front of the battery and not the top so that after i dropped the battery into the compartment it was impossible to see which was which.--- but i called battery stuff and they were very fast and helpful to assist
Other Thoughts: this battery fires up my virago 535 first time every time and i have no problems at all i will definately buy another one and you should buy one two--- a great item and value for the buck

1st was good, second sucked
Pros: works well on the 2007 F650GS
Cons: Needs to be jump started occaisionally on the F650GS 2005 type. The start isn't instant and it chugs a bit before turning over.
Other Thoughts: I switched out the batteries between the 2007 adn the 2005 models and the problem switched, so I think I got a poor battery the second time around.

Satisfied With the Battery
Pros: Recently bought the YT12CL AGM battery for my 2007 BMWF650 Dakar. The battery is zero maintenance, just what I was looking for...no leaks if/when the bike is dropped. Importantly, the battery drops right in to the bike without requiring any mods whatsoever. It is a perfect fit.
Cons: As far as long term reliability and performance go, I cannot comment since I just bought battery recently. However, the bike starts right up without any hesitation at all. No 'press and hold' the starter, more like a 'click' and it starts. So far I am totally satisfied with the battery.
Other Thoughts: Service from BatteryStuff was excellent. I initially made a typo with my address in the online order. They contacted me immediately and let me know. I fixed it with them over the phone. Got the battery within 48 hrs. They're in the Pacfic Northwest. I'm in Chicago.That is pretty good in my book. I would definitely buy from them again.

Good battery
Pros: Price. Ease of maintenance. Cranking power.
Cons: Weight (it's not a lithium after all)
Other Thoughts: I have used AGM batteries for other applications for years. I find them to be the best balance of price to performance. This battery lives up to that experience. I went out to start my bike the other morning after it had been sitting for a while. It was 19 degrees F. Fired right up first push on the starter.

Maintenance Free Battery for BMW F650 GS
Pros: Great customer service (I called twice with questions), reasonable price, perfect fit for 2007 F650 GS, maintenance free battery, free shipping, fast shipping.
Cons: There aren't any.
Other Thoughts: I don't know how long it will last, but to finally get a maintenance free battery that perfectly fits my 2007 F650 (which is only supposed to take an acid battery) is wonderful. Who cares if I need a new one in 3 years. Ordered early afternoon Monday had it at lunch Wednesday. Great people at Batterystuff.com

Great service
Pros: Was very happy with the service I received, fast shipping and good warranty backup.
Cons: Had trouble with battery app on my f650gs after a year, but battery stuff stood by their product and discounted a replacement even though the battery was out of warranty.
Other Thoughts: Having a non acid battery app for a BMW f650gs is a product plus. Thanks again battery stuff!

Very Good Battery for the price
Pros: Easy fit in my '03 F650GS. Lasted almost three years under fairly heavy use, though it was kept on a battery tender.
Cons: Could have lasted longer?

Great Battery For My Beemer
Pros: Works great. Direct fit with no modifications. Fires the first time,every time. Even after days on the road,running electric gear,heated grips and other electronic accoutrements, it still fires strong. Perfect answer to the problem of finding a sealed battery to fit my BMW F650GS.
Cons: I didn't discover it sooner
Other Thoughts: Batterystuff.com is an excellent company to order from! Fast shipping and excellent customer service! I've bookmarked them for all future battery orders! A++

Lasted 3 years, just bought another one
Pros: I like the sealed no maintenance battery. They come fully charged and ready to go. Got 3 years out of my last one. Cant beat the price
Cons: When its time to go they give you no warning. These things don't die a slow death. One day they start the bike fine, next day nothing, not even instrument lights.

Worked for application but failed
Pros: Purchased for my \'99 F650 and fit application perfectly. Easy to install, no acid to add.
Cons: This is my second Scorpion battery for this bike in my 4 years of owning it. Both died right around the two year mark. I figured the first one was just a manufacturing defect or an electrical issue with the motorcycle. I installed a voltage monitor on my dash and never saw any problems. After having no problem with the second one I chalked it up to a fluke in manufacturing (it happens). But, the second one quit last month. It won\'t take a charge any longer.

Good, solid battery....so far
Pros: Good battery so far. But again it is been only about a month since I installed it. I have this in my 2009 BMW G650GS which is my daily commute horse. Replaced an OEM BMW EXIDE battery that was not able to maintain its charge after 3 years. I wanted an AGM battery because getting to the battery compartment on my bike just to check the acid levels was getting to be quite a pain. Bike fires up immediately. Giving 5 stars simply because there are no cons. May revise if the battery fails me before 3 years time. :-)
Cons: So far nothing.
Other Thoughts: I normally keep my bike on a tender if I am not planning to ride for more than 3-4 days. So far have not had that long a period. Initially I had to charge the battery just to make sure. Have been measuring the voltage on the battery before and after my daily commute. Overnight the battery voltage drops off to between 12.78 to 12.87V (without tender of course). After reaching my workplace about 13miles away, I have measured the voltage bump up to between 13.44 and 13.87V after ignition off.

Way better than cheapo from the battery store
Pros: Needed a new battery for my 2004 BMW F650CS, so I opted for one from the local battery store. It was a cheapo dry unit off the shelf. It worked, but it never had enough reserve, the cells went low after a couple of months, and it cranked slow in the morning. So I had it on the battery tender 2-3 times a week. After 6 months I was sick of it. I order the Scorion AGM battery from BatteryStuff because it is maintainence free, and is rated 165 cca. Very prompt delivery. A couple of months in, and I am satisfied with the upgrade to the Scorpion. My bike cranks better than ever, and it runs like it is getting a better spark. I don't needed the battery tender any more. I just hope it lasts at least 2 years.
Cons: So far all is good.
Other Thoughts: Don't mess around with your battery or your tires. They both have to be tops.

Great little battery
Pros: This battery works great right out of the box. It's a perfect fit for my F650gs, with no problems installing. I'm impressed that a no maintenance battery at this price can actually be everything they say it is.
Cons: So far I haven't had any complaints.

Scorpion Battery
Pros: Small size glass mat battery, not many manufactures make the glass mat construction in this size. Battery looks good on the outside and connection lugs are fine.
Cons: This is a warranty battery, first one did not survive the winter even though I kept it on a battery tender JR. The 3 star rating is because the first battery failed so soon.
Other Thoughts: I had no trouble at all exchanging the battery after a couple of quick checks per the test procedure sent to be by batterystuff. I would purchase from them again.
