    Fits right in with no mods and it's sealed. I haven't even looked at mine in three years. Money well spent but I don't know where the best deal can be found.

    Fwiw it isnt an exact match dimensionally to the oem but close enough you wont have any trouble. I bought one after my oem started leaving me stranded almost 6 years ago and it still cranks the bike over like it did when new! I can let it sit all winter and it'll crank over like I rode it the day before.

    CR, Looks like you got a good deal as I just got mine earlier this year and paid $141.00 from a distributor in my own state! Ouch. looks like I overpaid. Once I started using it, I had no problem with the cost as it is everything I could want in a battery. I did have a little issue with mounting my leads to the battery. They give you some nice gold adapters but I could not use them on my bike and I still am not happy with the hookup but it works. I found mine to actually be a bit smaller than my battery box and ended up adding some foam to take up empty space. Now I wonder if my battery box was not changed sometime in the past since everyone is saying it is a direct or drop in fit. Hmmm?

    Going to find out real soon Pat, I ordered mine today also. Got it from BatteryMart which, I think, is in VA. Ordered it at noon today, it's already in the UPS tracking system, it'll be here Friday!!!

    $115.41, same price as Coprunners....free shipping to boot! :clapping:

    Danny, Did you order terminals with yours, or does the battery come with the necessary connections?

    Kevin-The 'L' brackets come with the battery.....same with Coprunners supplier too. Only difference between the two, that I can see, Tim had to call a toll free number to order, I ordered on line.

    Kevin-My cable ends were perfectly compatable with the Odyssey terminals. I didn't need to use the 'L' brackets that came with it.

    Pat, it sounds like something was changed on your bike, my cable ends had a right angle bend that fit over the top ridge on the battery just right.

    The battery itself is a little bit smaller than the box but not much.

    I'm running the Panasonic GEL cell with great results. I swapped it out three years ago when I bought the max as I don't like the acid getting on the bike and eating through the paint and what not. I leave it connected to a battery tender all the time though. I still have my original battery in my truck from 1997 and it's on the same type of tender. Anyway... Both are a good deal IMO.

    Danny, thanks for the input.

    Now after listening to what CR says about his battery, I think that I need to change mine. More $$$ into the Max.

    4Gasem mentioned a good point...acid!! The only blemish on my '99 was caused by a drop of acid on an upper frame rail. That stuff gets spilled and unless it's neutralized with a baking soda/water solution it goes to work eating and deteriorating your bike.

    Good thing to look for when considering a 2nd hand bike.....acid spills!
