My WR needs a new battery and was wondering if there is any preferred ones. The reason I am asking is that there is one for sale on ebay (new for $25) that is a sealed non gel type (made by Yusa). Since the battery is on its side, does it need to be a gel type or just a sealed unit?
If you want to save a pound or two.You can purchase a 4 or 5 amp sealed lead acid from a online battery shop or most car part dealers.They are around $40.They will not spin the motor as long as the stock battery but plenty long enough for me to get it started especially when warm.It is working good for me.

You cant beat the stock Yuasa. Get a tender while you are at it and your battery will last. I just replaced my original battery after 4 years because it was time, but it still works good and holds 12.9 volts. The new battery holds 13.2 volts. $72.00 is about the best price out there for our batteries.
Indy is right on here. The Stock Yuasa is a quality piece. Cheap batteries are just that. Cheap. A properly serviced and maintained stock battery will last for years.
