Good evening everyone. So while my girlfriend is out with her friends for a "ladies night", I'm at home with a Guinness pondering life's mysteries...like how long does the Yuasa YB16AL-A2 battery typically last before it needs to be replaced. This battery is actually the original one that came with the 900CR back in '98! I've kept it on a Battery Tender every winter and the thing just keeps starting up every time. I can't help but wonder if the battery is getting ready implode any day now or if this is typical for a well cared for battery. I'll be having the valves on the Duc checked this weekend and figured it would be a good time to replace the battery as well. I wouldn't mind saving the $ though if I can expect some more life out of the old Yuasa. Does anyone have any hints on what I should look for to determine if the battery is about worn out? It did start to get a little corrosion on the negative terminal for the first time this winter, if that's any indication.
Cheersand best regards,
