Yuasa makes very good batteries and they are OEM in many machines. I have a 08 Honda TRX700XX, a 07 KFX700, and a 07 TRX250EX and all had the oem Yuasa battery. They finally failed back in 2015, within 3 months of each other (dammit!). But 7 and 8 years out of a battery? I think that is pretty good. I will add that I did not go back with oem. I chose to install Deltran lithium batteries instead. They claim 5 times longer life then regular lead/acid type batteries. I seriously have my doubts about this claim. I decided to take a risk and buy one for my TRX. When it arrived, I was blown away at how much smaller and lighter it was. The oem battery weighed about 11 pounds, the Deltran weighed about 1 pound! Now I did not use a fancy scale, so these numbers are most likely not 100% accurate. They do cost more, in my case, about $30 more than oem. They also do not fit like oem, but it IS easy to get a custom fit with the included adhesive foam blocks. The downside is that they do recommend a charger specifically designed for lithium batteries, so that is an additional expense to consider. Since I was so impressed with my first purchase, I bought 2 more for the other quads mentioned. I replaced the 1st one in June, the 2nd in July, and the 3rd in October of 2015. A little over 3 years now, and I have had no issues with them. I do keep them on a maintainer and they start the machines very easily.
