If you are in the market for new battery for your Harley-Davidson motorcycle, you will need a battery that fits your specific make and model of Harley. In addition, you will need a 12-volt battery for maximum performance and reliability. Furthermore, you will likely need one that offers high-quality components and construction. You can find a plethora of battery options out there; learn about a few of your options for replacing your worn-out or dead battery.
Scorpion AGM Specifications
The Scorpion AGM Powersport and Motorcycle Battery will work for several different Harley models including the Harley 1,340-cubic-centimeter (cc) FL series from 1997 through 1998, the 1,450cc FL Touring model from 1999 through 2006 and the 1,570cc touring model from 2007 through 2010. These batteries come to you shipped and ready to install. They require no spacers, and the battery will bolt directly to the stock Harley cables. These batteries have no liquid acid, so no resulting corrosion will occur. In addition, all Scorpion batteries come with extra-heavy-duty terminal design and a one-year warranty.
Softail Replacement Batteries
The Softail Harley-Davidson motorcycle series comprises numerous models, including the Softail Standard, Heritage Softail, Heritage Classic and Fat Boy. You can only outfit these bikes with certain types of 12-volt batteries, as some of these bikes are from the 1980s. One battery that will work as a replacement, the 12-volt 1984 Harley-Davidson FXST 1340. This 12-volt battery replaces the original battery on your softtail with versatile terminals designed to fit with the Harley designs, so you won't need any special modifications.
Harley V-Rod Battery Replacement
If you have a Harley V-Rod bike from the years 2008 through 2010, the battery you need is the Big Crank ETX20L Battery. This 12-volt battery offers guaranteed compatibility with the V-rod bike for these years; the manufacturer also guarantees the battery will not spill or leak. The 16-lb. unit uses premium quality absorbed glass mat technology (AGM). Made in the United States, it comes shipped with new bolts and a one-year warranty.
