Need a new battery
Hey guys, well Ive been gone for a while now but IM BAAACK, I was working OVERTIME on my house and then went on vacation. Anyway, I was having some problems with my bike starting before vacation, after checking several things and getting many opinoins and having the batt checked Ive decided that the first thing I need to do its replace the batt. Now my budget is PRETTY tight right now. (just sunk a ton of money into the house and then vacation) so heres my question. How strongly would you guys caution against a "discount" batt. To replace it with the same as original would cost about 80 bucks, Ive also found some "off brand" ones that will work for around 50. In cars Ive discovered that basically any battery I throw in it works just fine with no noticable diffrence in performance but bikes are a whole new ball game. So what do you guys think? Is a battery a battery or should I wait it out and buy the better/more expensive battery? Keep in mind that I cannot ride my bike untill I get a new one, I know 80 bucks shouldn't be that big of a deal but Ive been laid off for like 5 months now so the savings are all but GONE!!! Thanks guys.
