    Motobatt

     Monday morning my Yussa battery died after 6 years living near no motorbike shops had to use Ebay & got one from these guys . Ordered Monday afternoon arrived Friday morning which is good for where i live . Motobatt have good reviews so thought i would give them a go advantage of them for me there posted fully charged and ready to go  . Very happy straight swap press the button and bike fired up $101 including P&P well spent in my book Big Smile

    Hi Pryah,

    My mechanic says that this battery brand is poor value and from our experience of these batteries in our training and hire fleet, I'm inclined to agree, but my knowledge is not in the same league as my mechanics. So I take his opinion on board.

    We stock Roadstar and when when we change a customers battery or our hire & training fleet, we have had absolutely no issues. 

    Cheers,

    Ilja Pickford

    I will be interested in seeing how reliable it is. That said, i hope it serves you well.

    I will say though, when it comes to batteries in automotive applications (especially when its your prime staring device), i just buy the best whatever the cost, for peace of mind.

    Yuassa's are dear to buy but they are the best,,,,,,(yours lasted 6 years).......and can be relied upon.........

    Re: Motobatt

    I've not been out on my bike for yonks.  I occassionally start the bike up to see if it's still alive.  I'm quite impressed with the Ballistic battery that I thought was a risky investment at the time, being over $200.  Not needed the trickle charger or anything.  Yes

    Kind regards,
