When I changed out the battery in my 650 Burgman today I went to a place called Batterys & Bulbs to make the exchange & purchase. I was pleasantly surprised that they had a Duracell Battery with threaded terminals!! No more chasing after the nut!! Haven't seen these before & it sure made the install go easier especially when your adding a pigtail & the space on the Burgman is limited and then there's that cover to deal with.  Just made the day a whole lot easier!

Is that the place that was called Batteries Plus?

Yes, it is...technically, it's now "Batteries + Bulbs".

Got my lawnmower battery there a few years ago. The battery was the same size with twice the cranking amps and terminals with threads. I do keep the battery on a tender during the off season. I must report no problems with it to date. So it should follow that your battery will perform well for you.

I bought a battery for my 400 there last year.  To tell the truth I don't remember if it had separate nuts or threaded post though.

Got the new Pyder battery there last time. Somewhat less expensive with superior performance so far. Oh, they also have great deals on battery tenders.
