Selecting the Proper Vehicle Battery

It’s easier than you think to buy the wrong battery for you powersports vehicle. Unless your current battery is the original equipment, you’re taking a chance by not double checking before you purchase the new battery. Here are a few general rules you should know before selecting the right vehicle battery:

Don’t Change Battery Types

  • Don’t use an AGM battery in the place of a Conventional battery unless you are sure your vehicle’s charging system can handle it
  • Don’t replace an AGM battery with another battery type without checking the Yuasa Application guide

Choose Performance Wisely

  • When given the choice of several different batteries for your vehicle, choose the one that will best suit your performance needs
  • Batteries with higher cranking amps will operate better at colder temperatures than comparable batteries with lower cranking amps (for example: YTX20HL vs YTX20L) but will often come at a higher cost.

For Conventional Batteries Only

  • If the battery in your vehicle is equipped with a sensor, replace the sensor at the same time you change the battery
