XV700 battery

PostAuthor: XV699 » Sun Apr 05, 2020 4:55 am

Hello, my lead acid battery has died.
Has anyone experience with Lithion-ion battery for use in an 1985 XV700?
Or is the only option to go for a new lead acid battery?

Thnx, Robert

Lotsa info here on VTF...The Good-Bad-and the Ugly of going Lithium. If you don't get any direct/satisfy'n answers to your question... :search2:
Semi-long read, but if you're new to the game..gotta start somewhere. Some good info bout what to expect going Lithium.

IMO: less hassle going with a name brand AGM battery.

Hi Flyingdog, I tried to search on VTF only it always gives me 0 results.
What possibly am I doing wrong with the search?

Our search has on-again/off-again problems...just do a google search. Can include the words: Virago Tech Forum..if you wish.
https://www.google.com/search?client=fi ... +batteries
http://viragotech.com/newtech/Battery%2 ... %20(Solved).htm

Some will go with lesser brand name with good luck..some with big brand name..final choice if yours'.
