Crappy Instructions Ruined Battery
I read the instructions to prep this battery before installing it in my atv. The instructions are extremely unclear and very vague. Long story short, I ended up destroying the battery, with acid spraying out everywhere as it sat on the charger. Make sure you watch the instructional video on Youtube before prepping it. Huge waste of $40!

OEM Quality at fraction of Price
This was a replacement for my 2015 Arctic Cat Wildcat Trail fit perfectly. The quality of the battery matched (IMO) the OEM battery at a fraction of the price. I highly recommend this battery for your UTV.

I bought this for my 400EX. I have been running it for a year now. It has been solid with out a single problem. Even in sub zero weather my quad has turned over strong every time. Very easy to assemble and install.

Great battery for the price
Bought this for my sons drz70 and didn’t even have to charge it. Added the acid and tested the power level it was at 12.8 which is almost fully charged. Slapped it in and fires it up perfect.

Can you check fluid level ?
Rhonda B on Jun 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Most batteries are solid black and you can not see the acid level. The battery comes with the correct amount of acid for the battery.
It has taken over 60 hours to drain just one of the acid cartridges into the battery. Is this normal? Is it safe to add the second cartridge (another 3 days!?!?!) is it safe to charge? Is the battery faulty and possibly dangerous? Should I request a refund or replacement?
Eric H on May 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It should not have taken that long to put the acid into the battery. You can poke a small hold in the top of the cartridge when it is filling the battery and it will allow the acid to flow very quickly into the battery and you can have it done within about 15 minutes. You will then put the battery to charge.
