pre kat battery

Battery went tits up. tired of bump starting. anyone have a "decent" battery for a 1996 katana 600 for cheap? not looking for anything special. not runnin a track bike or anything. just need to start the bike and take a charge.....which my current one will not do....

i dont care how old or what it looks like or even brand. just cheap. i can even meet u in or near olympia.

thanks for lookin and ride safe!

have you refilled your battery with distilled water? sometimes that will give them some more life, at least ive had luck with that and also had luck finding bike batteries in the clearance isle at walmart

  Maybe next year?
Did you test the voltage at the battery when the bike is running? Always the chance that part of your charging system isn't working properly.

I make no claims as to it's quality, but it is about as cheap as you are going to find for a new one...

I might just go battery pro bc they have it in stock. i should buy it online to save 10% and just pick it up in store. only $50 or so

Im kinda impatient. at least my legs are getting a workout though

**No longer needed**

Was getting tired of pushin all the time and the embarrassment factor was getting too high for our small town. So I went to Batteries Plus and got this yesterday:
