Not as in electrical short, but as in dimensionally short. 5mm to be exact. So the battery hold-down strap is quite loose over the new battery.

Entries in this blog
First blog entry. Stardate whatever. So this blog is primarily for my own benefit. Memory isn't what it used to be. Life is fleeting. Going to try to slow down and enjoy the process of resesitating this 2000 r1100r. Low miles, but mostly unused the past 10 years. I figure blogging about it will make it less about the end state and more about getting there.
First up, new battery...
So the official BMW battery 61212346800 is ~ $190.
AGM, 19 Ah, 170 CCA
BeemerBoneyard offers Westco 12V20P for $84.95, but UPS Ground shipping adds $23.15 for me.
AGM, 20 AH, 275 CCA
Amazon offers the 12V20P for $79.99 with free shipping. Going with that.
