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.

  • Don’t Change Battery Types

    • 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

  • 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
