Where did you order it from? I got mine a few months back from battery mart with 400 cca for $99.00 and free shipping. The extra cca really it kicks over the motor like instantly.

What battery is that? Do you have a part number. It sounds awesome.

I bought mine from Batteries + I believe it is the biggest they make for my 110ci. Turns it over with no problem and at the time was the ONLY battery I saw with a full 24 month warranty. Cost $125 but I had a $10 coupon. Worth every penny, I highly recommend them.

That really sucks... would not be an issue if the MOCO had spent a dollar in longer battery cables :banghead

Time to try that return/exchange policy...

That sounds good to me. I'd much rather see it and touch it before spending my bread. Thanks for the tip.

Check before you buy, the xl30 size won't fit a Sportster! If you need more cold cranking amps, about the only choice is a Lithium battery, to get any significant difference. Since you live in Florida, why do you need any more than stock cold cranking amps? Higher cold cranking amps, doesn't mean anything in normally warm weather. Only in the cold.

Does anyone happen to know what HD is getting for an OEM battery these days?
