Alright, my battery is shot again. It's still limping along, so I'm looking into a better option than the Yuasa T battery that is stock. I prefer cheeper, but would really like somthing that is maintanence free. I suck at remembering to add water. :x

My charging system is good. I had a bad stator 2 years back and I think I weakend the battery then. I also let it go dry a few times.

Thanks for the response, I will look into the sealed one.

Ya, you can't be running a battery dry. That's just asking for trouble. You must be over charging it, or you have accessories that are causing your battery to run hot, in shich case, all the water eventually evaporates out of it. I would suggest checking your battery level once a month on any bike you own. Keeping them topped off will keep the good for 6-7 years with no problem.
