I should also say that my OEM Yuasa performed admirably giving five years of service and never leaving me stranded. It even died rather gracefully. I detected a few weak starts last winter and in the spring took it in for a load test. I was told it passed, but only marginally.
So, I decided I could the better part of another year out of it (until the next winter), and so I did. I started detecting weak starts again and started putting in on a tender as I ride the scooter during the week. On a longer trip, the Wee start running roughly at idle speeds which I finally surmised was due to the weak batter not being able to handle the charge at low RPMs. So, I replace it with the MotoBatt and that problem went away.
