New Battery in 170i

Post by GregsBuddy »

My '14 Buddy would spin over with the starter but not start. Used jumper cables to add boost and it started immediately. Pretty good battery life at ~5.5 years. The scoot has ~14,000 miles and is used all year long.
I'm a happy Buddy owner as this is the first failure of anything on the bike since new. I'm not going to officially call this a "failure" of the bike.
'09 Yamaha TMAX Large sport scoot.
