Motobatt batteries

I'm looking for a replacement battery for my CB77,
anyone have any experiences, good or bad with the Motobatt brand, the bright yellow ones!

I have one on my 66' CL77. Though it's kick start only, I have had great service with it for 2 years. I exercise her about 50 miles a week, the battery always stays charged.

After going through two YUASAs in two years, my first Motobat lasted five years. Second one only lasted 11 months, replaced under warranty...

You'll want a low-amp battery tender to go with it; charging with a regular battery charger won't be good for it and may void warranty.

Terminals have a way of loosening up with vibration...I've begun using loc-tite on mine.
