R1200RT battery replacement recommendation

Recommended Posts

I believe I am due for a new battery for my 05 R1200RT. Mine is 3 1/2 years old and I don't want to risk being stranded. Does anyone have recommendations for a replacement. Source and price? I will appreciate responses. Thanks.

I just put in a Westco on my '05 RT for the same reason you are considering it....OEM Exide working fine but it was over 4 years old...Ordered on line from Westco and delivered to my door for about $107 in just a few days........Fits OK in width and length but is about 1/4 to 3/8's shorter so some kind of spacer is needed...I used plywood...See thread link below for discussion....Also will need to file off just a tad bit of the bottom side of the battery cable connectors...No big deal....
