Jason,
Mine died on me a couple of weeks ago after at least 5 years. Not sure what lines are available in the States, but I was impressed with the fact that the Yuasa lasted so long, I went and bought the same brand. Expensive, but good bang for the buck.

I need a trickle charger for the winter.

Are those cheap plug into the walls ok?
I use one of these and has been excellant. Just plug in and forget about it. Comes with a extention cable so there is no need to keep connecting directly to battery all time. I leave my lead inside of the fairing so it is easy to plug in.

Anyone know of a really good battery brand. Do they make a dry cell optima style?

My '03 TLR had 1500 miles on it when the battery crapped out. That's because the previous owner let it sit in his garage mostly unridden for 3 years! He replaced the battery to sell it to me. Ha!!
My comments contribute exactly nothing to this thread - just thought it was amusing... :)

Yausa is good, but waaaaay to expensive.

I can buy 4 - 5 of a cheaper brand, and there is no guarantee that a Yausa will last significanly longer.
I had an Yausa previously, and it only lasted 3 years, now I rather buy a new each year, still cheaper...
Tenderising over the winter these cheaper ones last 2-3 years anyway. So, I cant justify an Yausa. :no

For Swedes, it's Biltema gel battery, 30 euro, or so ;)
