my Yuasa in the stelvio is from 2008 and still strong and not leaking
Just put an Anti Gravity lithium battery in my Stelvio. I have already had one leaking OEM battery and the replacement was identical to what was already leaking. Rather than discover that I had another leaker I bit the bullet for a no-leak solution. We'll see soon if the lithium cold weather performance is satisfactory or not.Peter Y.
....I have a 2013. I know the battery is still at an angle, but does anyone know if they changed the battery type to eliminate leakage ?
Is it leakage?? Or, is it just corrosion at the connections from a lack of adequate corrosion protection?
In 2008 the battery was installed upright. Later they changed it where the battery lays sideways. those leak.
Reviving this thread here a bit. I'm going to replace the Yusa in mine. Does Odyssey have a battery to fit? Their website offers no clue. If not Odyssey, any other lighter weight suggestions? I really like the idea of weight savings especially since the battery sits so high up in the bike. Leaf, is the Motobatt any lighter than the stock Yusa?
I may give the Shorai a shot. Looks like it's a weight savings of almost 10lbs over the Yusa that's in there.
I hope I'm wrong but you may regret that. Let us know how it works out in the colder months.
Chuck, mine was leaking from around the battery post and then running down the drain tube at the bottom of the battery tray. The acid was leaving white spots on my concrete floor, which was my clue of a problem. I did not have significant corrosion on the posts.At 37F the new lithium battery took 5 tries before it would kick the engine to life, then showed 13.4V immediately. There is darn little drain on the battery until the starter does its job and then the lights come on and everything else takes a bite out of the available electrons. Thus, I'll have to wake the battery by trying (and failing) to crank a few times. The Ballistic Battery video helps explain what really is a new starting experience.Peter Y.
Peter, what model did you get? I bought a YT12BS-16 16 cell. I haven't installed it yet.
Yes, if I am correct, the '09 battery was positioned upright instead of leaning over like on the '12-later bikes that experienced leaks.
No, my '09 has the battery laying over at about a 45 degree angle, leaning forward under the back of the gas tank ....Lannis
