Battery upgraded!

Hey guys just wanted to share. I was tired of always seeing a low voltage message. Let's face it the stock batteries suck. So I found one that is a little longer, a shade shorter and about the same width, but upgraded from the stock 190cca to a 340cca AGM sealed one for $90! Because it was a shade shorter I was able to put a pice of hard rubber mudflap under it and a small pice under the stock strap, and it bolted up perfectly! So if anyone is looking for an upgrade here's the link USA-Made Big Crank ETX18L Battery - Free Shipping: BatteryMart.com

Also, check your radiator hose that runs beside the battery. My stock battery had been rubbing the hose the whole time and I didn't know it. So when I installed the new battery I split a pice of heater hose and wrapped it to protect it.

I went with an Autocraft AGM from Advanced auto. Not as many CCA's as theone Buckwild listed but it has worked great, even in some sub zero weather( ice fishing on Erie,-5 one of the mornings). Go online and use coupon code A124 when checking out. Select local pick up and choose the store closest to you and your all set. Should be able to pick one up for $57.99 plus tax (take an old battery to get core charge back) Good luck. Here a link to the battery I bought.

Not quite sure that stock batteries are all that bad. I have a 2009 Sportsman Touring 800 with about 3300 miles, 340 hours. That is on year number 6 of winter plowing and summer wheeling as well.

Agreed that not all are bad. My brother bought an 07-09 (I can't remember the year) and we just replaced the battery in that last year. But from what I've heard and experienced, the ones in the 570s aren't big enough and go down quick unless you keep them on charge all the time.

The specs show that battery being about 3" longer than OEM. Do you have any pictures of how this fit? They do have a 220CCA battery that is the same size as OEM as well.
I've never had a problem with OEM batteries in any of my atv's, but CCA's are good to have.

There is a tab on the front bottom of the battery tray that prevents it from sliding forward into the driveshaft. With it slid up against the tab you still have a little room between the battery and engine. Just had to put some rubber mat on the bottom and strip on top to keep it tight and secure with the stock strap.

That's a pretty tight fit. Thanks for the picture.

It's probably not as tight as the pic makes it look. I'll try to measure the distance between the battery and block this evening. That was the best pic I had on my phone last night. It is close to the bock ,but nothing that concerns me.

If it seems like it gets to hot I will put some heat shielding around the battery later. But I don't think it will get any hotter than the stock size battery would.
