As usual BatteryMart shipped the battery quickly and it was installed with no hassles other than BMW imposed design quirks, i.e. a lot of disassembly to access the battery compartment. When new, the battery operated satisfactorilly. After 12 months, cranking started to become an issue. Now that colder weather has set in, it has little cold cranking power, even with a "full charge". It would hardly crank this AM with a temperature of 45 deg. I put a charger on it until it registered a "full charge". Still would not crank. Later this afternoon, after ambient temp reached about 56 deg, it would finally crank fast enough to start the engine. Very disappointed in this battery's overall performance.
Battery is GREAT!
I ordered this battery for my 1996 BMW K1100 LT. The battery does look well made, was shipped quickly, however it will not work with this particular bike. BMW uses a large metal battery hold down plate which secures the battery to the tray. If installed the terminals on the battery will be in direct contact with the plate causing a short circuit. I had to return the battery to Battery Mart, therefore I am not able to make a recommendation on the battery as I did not install it, They took good care of me on the RGA. No issues at all.
Just installed the battery about a month after receiving it and the BMW started right up. Just in time for riding season, if it would just stop raining. Hope this battery lasts longer than the last 2 I bought from another company.
Easy to order the correct battery online. The price was very competitive with the free shipping. It was delivered in three days.
The only shortcoming was the lack of terminal protection to keep the battery hold down/computer mount from shorting out the terminals.
This was fixed with a thin piece of neoprene placed between the battery and holder.
Although it is a good fit size-wise, the terminals are thin, and 1/4 to 1/2 inch more towards the centre of the battery. This meant that the original connection did not fit, and required much bending of the connector, and application of a spacer to get it to connect.
It did, however, arrive charged enough to start the bike up first time.
Battery fit the battery box without any problems and bike fired right up.
