Makes two of us and I just bought a new Bike Master Lithium battery and it barely turns the damn thing over. Quite annoying to say the least.


I've been looking at Scorpion Stinger (357cca) and it's not priced to bad. I've read about the CBR battery but wasn't sure if there was a specific year to look for. I've read about Ballistic batteries which I've found model EVX12-16 which appears to be 480cca but I would imagine is on the high side price wise for an ATV battery.

I didn't have any luck with the high dollar lithium batteries. And I was schooled that CCA is just that. As long as your not riding in sub zero temps it is not needed. If your original battery lasted this long, why not go back with it? And there only like $80 or so.

Well I put the battery that I had bought it with back in and what do you know, it starts better and easier. Even after not being on a tender for 3 months. I guess if I do replace it I'll stick with either standard lead/acid or AGM maybe.

It's still not as quick to fire it up as I want it to be but definitely an improvement over the Lithium.

I wouldn't use a Bike Master battery as a gauge for all lithium ion batteries to be judged by.

I have an anti-gravity lithium battery and it works great. I got a deal on it from an eBay seller for $160.

Was able to buy a Shorai lithium battery from 4 wheel online. It was a perfect fit, to be honest you can't feel or see any difference compared with the oem, just the additional capacity it has that would be very helpful if you decide to install additional lighting accessories.

True. I'm not really basing it off the bike master but I'm definitely happier with the original for the moment. I still think it needs more initial starting balls. I've seen positive reviews on this site for both the anti-gravity and ballistic batteries. So hopefully we get few more reviews here as I'm not looking to keep "trying" different batteries by any means.

This is a post I made back in February on another ATV site. I do agree with quick that Yuasa batteries are good. All three of our quads had these OEM batteries in them and as you will read, they lasted a long time.


Something to consider. I have a 08 Honda TRX700XX, a 07 KFX700, and a 07 TRX250EX and all with the oem Yuasa battery. They finally failed about 10 months ago and 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 cannot say if they are durable since I have only had the oldest one for about 10 months, but they do start the machines very easily.
