    Default Best brands/stores for ATV batteries

    My 99 Foreman ES needs a new battery. What are some good places to get a quality battery in Anchorage/Wasilla ..that will last hopefully as long as the factory one did. Or should a fella go to wally world/costco and get one. As always would like to keep it local if possible.

    Thanks for the past forums on battery storage, Mine lasted a LONG time. Just made sure it was fully charged and disconnected the Negitive terminal for months at a time. I've even left the machine outside for weeks in the winter, when the shop is being used for projects.

    Thanks Again for the INFO...

    Try "Batteries Plus" on International, they'll have what you need.

    If you want a GOOD battery, I would recommend using Interstate batteries. I bought mine at the atv repair shop in Eagle River for around $60.

    Default Price really varies

    Prices are all over for batteries. The Interstate battery for my '96 Yamaha Kodiak is between 98 and 115 bucks.

    Batteries plus was about half of what the "stealership wanted" for the same battery.

    Default I know

    My local Yamaha dealer wanted $129.00 for the Yuasa battery for my '96 Kodiak. The one at Batteries Plus is $85.00.

    Nope, i've been doing it with the same battery for several winters plus I ride a lot during the summer and my battery is in good shape. Seriously though, if you want a good battery for your wheeler the Interstate batteries are one of the best out there. Check with ATV Salvage in Eagle River, that's where I bought mine.

    At Batteries Plus you can get a dry cell battery to replace your current flooded battery. Everything about dry cells is better. They're worth a few extra bucks.

    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed
