This is a great battery. Fits perfectly in my bike. I hope it outlasts my previous battery(9 mo.). Highly recommend this product.
TruGel Battery - 2nd failure
March 12, 2013(Redding, CA)
I had a normal battery that was still working but getting old. Replaced it with a Trugel. The new battery wouldnt turn the engine over and measured 11.6v out of the box. Charged it up, the voltage measured ok, but still would crank the bike over. Returned it and got a another new one. It read under 12v out of the box. Charged it before installing. This one wouldnt turn the engine over. Go for a different brand of battery.
True Gel battery

Worked fine for the first year on my weekly triumph street triple. After first year it needed to be battery tendered if not ridden for a month. Two years, even coming directly off of a battery tender 50% time bike will not turn over fast enough to start. 3-4 tries the engine will not turn over anymore and push start the bike. It's been exactly two years since I bought the battery (out of warranty), but I expected more from a so called high quality gel battery.
I do not recommend this battery

The Battery itself seems to work ok, but the fit was off. The battery barely fit my tray. Also I had to replace the hardware. The bolts were too short and the nut retainer slots are pathetic. This is absolutely the worst battery I have ever installed as far as the actual installation on the bike. What should have taken 5 minutes took 2 hours.

I purchased the gel battery for a 2003 Kawasaki Voyager because I was tired of the old battery constantly needing water. It popped right in and started my bike up on first attempt. (The temperature was hovering at just under 30 degrees that day) Time will now tell if the extra cost was worth it. At this point . . . I'm impressed.

Some work some don't, I have found if you turn key on and wait then try it works every time? Weird.

I have had this battery for 2yrs + and is still working strong. Battery is not junk because I could go a month + and not charge it (not recommended) and still cranked over!

I've had this battery for only a month but my bike started quickly with the battery right out of the box. It sat for a week and then continued to start up quickly without any hickups. Quality seems very good.

Well... against my better judgement, I got caught up in the hype. The TRUE GEL battery I purchased was for an 89 FLHS. The cost for TG battery was actually a bit higher than the battery. Upon receipt of the first battery, it was installed per instructions. Would not start the bike. Trickle charged, tried, no luck. Was sent a replacement. Did not work either. My advice: Don't fall for the hype! Stick to what works.

I had this battery for 9 months and returned it under warranty. I could come to work, then it didnt have the juice to start the battery for the return home. This happened 4 times randomly during colder days. Bike drainage @ 0.6mA, so bike was fine. I am assuming I had a bad apple in the bunch and that production quality has improved. I am reverting back to AGM batteries. Motorcycle Superstore handled the return nicely.
