I may be needing a new battery for my 660. Yuasa is probably accepted as the best replacement by most, but I'm wondering what are some other alternatives?

I got an AGM from Autozone (because I was in a pinch for time) for about $100. It was a decent brand for motorcycles. AGM (absorbed glass mat) is generally a better than a standard lead acid battery. Also good to use a battery tender if you don't ride all the time.

BATTERY

Hi, I have used a few different batteries for my smaller quads and motorcycles. I just got a Grizzly and I would not put in anything but a Yuasa battery. I find they last a lot longer and I rather not replace the battery every 1-2 years. More money but well worth it.

After all the batteries I have used over over the years, Yuasa was the longest lasting by far.
But after saying that, I also had great performance and life from Energizer AGM battery.

I have gotten longer life out of AntiGravity lightweight batteries in my motorcycles than I ever have out of the OEM ones or replacement YUASA ones. I asked about them here before for ATV use. http://www.grizzlycentral.com/forum...ne-using-lightweight-lithium-ion-battery.html
I don't know why it wouldn't be a good option for ATVs. Maybe if you're running a bunch of accessories like a winch, hand warmers, and lighting...I don't know. Shouldn't affect it unless you try to run those accessories with the machine off. These batteries are unbelievably light and you get better cold weather starting out of them too in my experience.

I've bought these for 3 or more machines over the last 2 years:
ThrottleX Search By Type

Sometimes I find them for awesome prices in Amazon, as low as $45 even.

I went with them because they're AGM, a USA company, they focus on powersports, have great reviews, good customer service, and great price for AGM battery.

So far so good.

Currently my Griz has a walmart battery from the PO. I've owned it 3 years with no problems until last week when it clicked a bit before finally starting. Charged battery overnight and keeping it on trickle charge since. With deer season coming soon I've been battery shopping proactively. I believe an AGM battery is probably the way to go for me, but being a frugal guy I'd like to find the best bang for the buck.

I just put a Throttle X battery in my 700 (same size battery as a 660) and it has 500 CCA. I just installed it last week and I use a trickle charger so time will tell.
