Need a new battery...any suggestions?

I live in central Florida & have a 2015 RT Limited w/12k miles w/the Original battery. I know I can take it back to the dealer but was wondering what other alternatives are available or what others may have done in terms of getting something better.

The OEM battery really is quite good and "better" is mostly a matter of opinion.

Get the part/model number off of it and call a few other motorcycle shops in the area; a few "battery" stores too.

Any major brand AGM of the same size should be fine.

How do you know you need a new one ?
What part of central Florida do you live in ??

Easy Rider.... De Land .. left radio on 4 a few minutes by mistake.... had a hard time starting/turning over... let sit 4 a lil while & she finally, struggling, turned over. After that she's ok as long as I turn everything off quickly.. another time was setting up my GPS & com system w/o starting & again she struggled to start... so I now make sure to start up 1st. Then do the com hook up...

That's pretty good evidence......probably.

How often do you ride, on average ?

Everybody should own a good, small smart charger, battery tender type; NOT a cheap trickle charger.

Not that offen. I only have about 13k miles. It probably sits more than it runs.

OK, so you need two things:
A new battery.
A smart battery maintainer charger. "Tender" is a brand name; there are many others. Even available at WalMart.

There is a good Spyder shop in Daytona Beach.
