Good replacement fit
Pros: Ordering process went smoothly. Delivery was prompt (I feel sorry for the USPS, their "if it fits it ships" program can't be making any money shipping heavy batteries). The battery fit exactly (R850R) and I had no connection issues as described in other reviews I had read of this product.
Cons: I now have to find a place to return the old dead battery.
Other Thoughts: The real test will be service lifetime. Bike has yet to hit the road, it's been a nasty winter here.

Very satisfied customer
Pros: Strong starting power, alternator turns over with authority. No need to check fluid level on self contained battery. My 2004 BMW K 1200 GT likes the new battery based on no signs of a rejection. Had BMW Motorcycles of Las Vegas Nevada install the battery during a recent major maintenance service work done on the bike. Technician that did the work did not have anything negative to say about the battery installation nor were there any modifications needed to install the battery.
Cons: As with all batteries it's difficult to say how long the battery will last. Only time will tell.
Other Thoughts: Order with confidence. This company delivers as advertised and the pricing on the battery cannot be beat for the CCA's the battery comes with.

first time buyer
Pros: I recently purchased a high Output AGM battery for my BMW LT 1200.I was impressed with batteryStuff.com website. It was easy to find this recommended battery and to get the specs. Shipping was fast and professionally packed. The battery fits and works great. My bike is hard on batteries and I was concerned on the cranking power of this battery. More than a month and there is absolutely nothing to worry about. Previous battery was a BMW battery at more then twice the price. Have recommended this on line battery store to my motorcycle friends. Will defiantly use battery Stuff in the future
Cons: none
Other Thoughts: none

Satisfied Customer
Pros: Proper fitment. This battery might be about 1/4" taller than the old dead BMW battery that I took out of my garage-find R65LS, but it still fits perfectly-important given that this bike has a narrow and odd sized battery box. It has plenty of cranking power, though I'm not surprised given it's high amp hour rating
Cons: No manufacturer paperwork comes with the battery.
Other Thoughts: Shipment to the East Coast was prompt. I like that you use USPS, as they will deliver on Saturday, and are more reliable than the brown truck.

Aftermarket Battery for BMW K1200 GT 2003
Pros: Easy installation. Shipping was fast. Battery arrived fully charged. The price was very good.
Cons: Only a slight modification to the positive battery cable end was needed to complete installation. That's why I gave it a 4 star rating. Otherwise everything is perfect.
Other Thoughts: This battery starts the bike with power to spare. I would recommend this product and this store to others. I'm satisfied.

Other Thoughts: Good store, good products, excellent service, never had a problem here.

YT51913-22 Scorpion 12v 255 CCA Sealed AGM Motorcycle Bat
Pros: This battery has better cranking capacity than the original and the last two lead acid batteries that I replaced in my K1200LT. Just completed 1200 mile trip. No problems while running heated seats, grips and auxiliary lighting. Glad I made the purchase prior to leaving, old battery was questionable. Temps between 26 and 89 degrees no problems turning over bike.
Cons: No cons.
Other Thoughts: Excellent buying experience. Will do business with them again.

My experience buying an AGM battery for my BMW Airhead
Pros: I needed a new battery for a project BMW R65 and was pointed at batterystuff from ADVRIDER. Finding the right AGM battery was easy and it was shipped promptly. Fit was good and it has more then enough power to bump the motor over even on cold days. Of course everyone should really review their battery two years after they bought it but I can say 'so far so good' with confidence. As a side note BatteryStuff is one of the best online ordering companies I've dealt with. They smoothed over an issue that USPS created and made me a customer for life.
Cons: None yet

YT51913-33 12 v
Pros: What the heck can one say about a battery? It does what was claimed! BUT there always has to be a but doesn't there? The battery, it arrived in half the time they said. I was wondering what the package was on my porch until I lifted it. I give this corporation top marks and in future my full confidence.
Cons: Make the batteries free and I will take more of them.
Other Thoughts: The person who took my order - I had to phone as the photo showed lower amp then claimed - resolved my query as though I was purchasing a yacht. Very knowledgeable and well spoken. Good representative of the company. I feel that in future I won't cruise the market. Come to these guys.

R1150RT
Pros: Perfect fit in my 2002 BMWR1150RT. Don't forget the battery tender cables during install or you will regret it. The bike starts stronger than ever, I am very confident with my new battery. FAST DELIVERY!!
Cons: You have to modify the terminal covers to make room for accessories like the Battery Tender Cables, but that's no big deal, just need a razor knife.

Great battery
Pros: Perfect fit,fully charged, good power, fast shipping!
Cons: None so far, but I have only had it for a short while.
Other Thoughts: Fit my '08 R1200RT perfectly and has plenty of amperage to flip its' 12:1 compression engine with authority! I would recommend this to anyone with a Boxer twin!

BMW R1200 Battery
Pros: These gel batteries replace the original BMW battery at about half price. They fit, they deliver fast, with free shipping and none of the "disposal fees" that some states charge. My experience is that they last over three (3) years with normal use. Sure -- more longevity would be nice, but 3 years is pretty normal for a BMW battery in my experience, with all the current BMW demand (lights, heated grips, lots of electronics, etc.) No complaints.
Cons: No real cons!

Different than same model number of 4 years ago
Pros: Fit in my BMW K1200LT OK BatteryStuff has great customer service!
Cons: Posts are not thick lead type posts like the older version of this model. Had to drill out the holes in the posts to allow the bolts to go through. Posts are shorter than previous model making it more difficult to get a wrench on the bolts.
Other Thoughts: Ordered my previous battery (same model number) from BatteryStuff about 4 years ago. That battery had lead posts and was basically identical to the stock BMW. This battery was has tab type posts making it more difficult to install. First once sent to me went dead after 2 weeks. BatteryTender would just flash when trying to charge it. BatteryStuff sent a replacement and this one seems to be fine.

So far so good
Pros: Great battery. Half the size of my regular battery but seems like it has as much or more pop. It was such a breeze to install it, unlike the factory brand. Don't know yet how long it will last, but if it goes a few years, 5 stars.
Cons: None

Scorpion Sealed AGM battery great buy for the price
Pros: I purchased a YT51913-22 Scorpion AGM battery for my BMW R75/5. I've restored this bike from boxes of junk to a sweet machine. The Scorpion is perfect for my bike. More amperage than stock. Lots of cranking power, and for a price that is unbeatable. Don't spend lots of time shopping. Just buy this battery. You won't be disappointed.
Cons: I can't think of any cons that would really apply. Great price, fast delivery, excellent performance. What else it to want?

BMW Batteries
Pros: The batteries fit like a glove and work fine. I had tried to get one from Autozone and another local store, but those didn't fit. I was not sure how this would work with the batteries being mailed. My worries were how long will it take and do the batteries arrive in one piece. I ordered on Friday, Monday I got the order confirmation and an estimated delivery date Friday. I was skeptical on Thursday I picked up the batteries from the post office they had arrived on Wednesday.
Cons: I haven't owned them long enough to say anything negative. The bike cranks up fine and has plenty of power.

YT51913-22 Scorpion 12v 255 CCA Sealed AGM Motorcycle Battery
Pros: This is my third sealed battery for a my 1971 R60/5 BMW after years of the old lead acid batteries that even with the vent tube would manage to get acid on something, plus had low cranking power and two year life spans typically. A previous sealed gel style battery I replaced only because it was over 5 years old is still sitting around holding a charge, so I'm sold on these batteries as being cost effective. Web searches showed the Scorpion to have good reviews and the best pricing for an AGM battery.
Cons: I did have one AGM battery of a different brand that had an abrupt failure a little after two years, (also cost more) while a call to the company resulted in my being sent a new battery at no charge. A web search didn't seem to show this is a common problem as I found no mention of anyone else having this problem.
Other Thoughts: Absolute perfect fit for my 1971 R60/5 BWM which years back before the internet was available was beginning to be a problem unless you wanted to buy the high priced official BMW battery.

Great service and product
Pros: Great service. Shipped same day i ordered. I like USPS priority. Product was an exact fit for my '09 R1200RT. No mods needed at all plus, unlike OEM, terminal covers provided for negative as well as positive posts. I pre-emptively replaced the OEM which was a concern before heading to MOA Rally in St Paul. The Scorpian is doing great so far.
Cons: none

Better Than New
Pros: Not as easy as it sounds to go online and find a replacement battery for a motorcycle. Not only are there many choices out there, the simple fact that there will sometimes be very few choices (for certain bikes) makes it much more of a challenge. Case in point: my 1994 BMW R1100RS. The fact that this bike has ABS makes it much harder to find an exact replacement. But, thanks to BatteryStuff.com, they had just what I needed, and at a VERY GOOD price! Add to that the excellent correspondence provided and FAST shipping, I couldn\'t be happier. PS, the bike runs fantastic now!
Cons: Cons?? NO WAY!

Fast Shipping
Pros: BatteryStuff.com is Fast, Fast, Fast. I ordered this battery as a replacement for the OEM in my 2008 BMW K1200GT on a Sunday night and had is installed and running by Wednesday in time to ride out to dinner. The unit is a direct replacement requiring only a moment to drill out the terminals to accommodate the original BMW connectors. Thank you BatteryStuff.com!
Cons: Terminals are small but appear to make great contact.

BMW K1200rs replacement battery
Pros: Price, price, price. Perfect outside dimensions, matches OEM battery, so drops right into battery tray and battery hold down fits like a glove. Cranks engine very fast, so far holds a charge very well on repeated short trips.
Cons: Battery terminals did not work with stock BMW wiring harness. I had to bore out holes large enough to fit stock battery bolts. Was very easy to do, just an extra step. Bolts that came with battery were way to short to fit connectors. Biggest problem was I had to bend one of the main harness connectors a long ways to get the connector to be able to come close to attaching to the terminal. The terminal was very thin compared to the stock and previous aftermarket terminals and was set back farther. This combination did not allow the wiring harness terminal to come within a 1/4 inch of the battery terminal. So with two sets of channel lock pliers I was able to create a new angle and depth to the connection. My biggest fear was all the bending would crack the cable connector. But since it is pretty hefty, no problems arose.
Other Thoughts: Very fast, efficient and inexpensive shipping.

Great buy
Pros: Great price, especially with free shipping. USPS, ordered Tuesday and got it Friday..best my r1200rt has turned over since I bought it new. Longest a battery has lasted me so far has been two yeasr, I feel lucky! Only gave 4 stars because I just bought it, however if the durability and dependability are as reliable as the first 3 days it will no doubt be a 5 star purchase!
Cons: None at this time.

Great product & Better Services
Pros: I bought Scorpion battery for my 09 R1200RT 5 years ago, also from BatteryStuff. I've been very happy, but thought it was time to replace it. The new Sorpion has 22 CCA vs 20 in the old one, so that's a nice bump, still at a very good price. Just installed the new battery last week, and definitely can tell the difference! Great fitment. Also, super Customer Service in replacing the battery damaged in transit from Oregon to Missouri.
Cons: Minor complaint: Wish the plastic snap terminal covers were more accommodating of multiple wire attachments.

Great Battery
Pros: For it's small size and modest price this battery does a really good job of turning over the starter on my BMW k75RT at temperatures down to 15 degrees F. After a year of use, it still starts my bike as fast as it did when new.
Cons: Can't think of any.
Other Thoughts: Battery Stuff is an amazing company to deal with. I can't believe how fast they were able to get my battery to me after I placed my order.
