Anyone have a manufacturer and part # for a battery? After almost two years, mines toast after I left it with the lights on for ten minutes the other day. Won't hold a charge over 11.8v now.

Went to the dealership today and they want $150 for a battery. Hell, might as well be buying Honda OEM parts... :lol:


Believe it or not, the SMC is actually pretty easy to kick-start. Took me a few minutes to remember the 'feel' for TDC though - it has been 18 years or so since I last kickstarted a bike.

I have not had to replace my battery yet, but you should be able to find a cheaper one. Hell I think wal-mart has one that is close. I looked at wal-mart battery section and they had a vehicle look-up book. I think it had ktm lc4 listed in there. I kick mine sometimes just to make sure I still got the touch. Usually I can get it fired in 1 or 2 kicks.

Deka makes good AGM batteries, and cheaper than stock, and just as good, not sure if they have one that will fit the bike or not

Check with Batteries+. You might find exactly what you are looking for there. I picked up a replacement unit for my Ninja 250. It was about $50.

If the dimensions are right, get the gell one. Cheaper and better.

But make sure it will fit.

If you want cheaper, I'd check walmart like said above.

I have not been able to kick start the bike yet. Carb, valves everything dialed in. Starts with barely touching the majic button. But she just doesn't like to be kicked!

But then again... I'm too lazy to practice!
