Back in the day, Honda found that something like 90% of all electrical warranty claims on their motorcycles were the result of bad batteries.....

Does anybody here know why Advance Auto only sells 36R (size for my 2000 vulcan) in their Silver line, and there's not a Gold version? The Silvers only have 2 year warranty, and as we all know, batteries these days don't last much longer than their warranty. I'd like to not have to buy a new battery every two years -- and especially not risk getting stranded as often.

^^^ Agreed

I have been using Wally World Everstart MAXX batteries for years. Generally get 5+ years out of them, and they are very reasonably priced. Never had to return one under warranty.

If you can find the 36R at costco, the price is $76 instead of $100 at Walmart.

Good info. For me, Advance is < 1 mile away, while walmart is about 12 miles out so I usually don't want to fight the traffic to go there. And, I'm not a Costco member, but if it's a $25 savings for just a battery, maybe it's worth it. I'll definitely shop around more next time.
