The big problem is when the dealer says it is ready and it's not, then you try to use it. If you do not get a battery to 100% before putting a draw on it, it will NEVER be a good battery.

Freedom's where I go to get mine now & I've never had a problem. Got my last two from them, and watched 'em fill 'em. Brought 'em home, did the initial charge & haven't looked back...

Problem with stealerships is not all help is qualified. I try to deal with Russ for parts, but Tim's the only other one I'll talk to. I prefer Russ though, he works over the prices for me... Very Happy

Ya gotta be careful going with 'bigger' ones or ones with higher CCA's. You may end up doing more harm than good and you COULD end up draining the 'bigger' ones quicker than the direct replacements...

Freedom is where I've had issues with batteries. 3 batteries in 2 years between bike and quad. As for going larger won't harm your machine. The battery compartment regulates how large one can go. No powersports battery put out so much power that it can damage a starter Staters aren't an issue either since the circuit is fused to the charge rate.

Odd. Freedom's where I've had the best luck. I won't buy a bike battery anywhere else now...

Where do you get a Freedom Battery and what do they cost for a 04 Grizz. Any info would be great.

You can always do it this way. Stick to an AGM type battery.

What do think about this company? Link below. Right now my trailer is under 4 ft of snow so im getting a nice battery for my 660 grizzly. I went to Advanced Auto and they wanted $95 for a Interstate and this is one is on Ebay for $95. They have batteries cheaper but...I want a sealed one with the right specs and a name brand. http://motobatt.com/

Go for it. Just make sure the dimensions are the same as what you have now so there is no problem with fit. Also make sure the - /+ coinside with what you have. They are not the same on all batteries.
