[quote=“MJB”][quote=“llary”]The battery on my RZX has given up the ghost and I’ve been trying for the past few weeks to find a replacement. It’s a wet battery, nobody seems to make that size any more and all the new dry batteries are way too big to fit anywhere on the bike. I did track down a second hand replacement but they wanted NT$1,050(!) For a second-hand wet battery. Yeh, right. I’ve thought about trying to shift some bits around and fit the battery somewhere else but I just can’t find anywhere to mount it safely that doesn’t have it sticking out somewhere ridiculous.
I’m sure there must be other RZX/R owners out there who have encountered a similar problem and maybe found a solution…[/quote]
I can have one sent down tomorrow if you are having trouble sourcing in Taichung, but like Redwagon, I’m quite surprised that this battery isn’t readily available in any motorycle parts store. I know of at least 3 places I can get one within ten minutes of my house.
If you havn’t found one by tomorrow evening, give me a call and I’ll shoot one down from here.[/quote]
Been to eight stores so far :s
The only place with one in stock wanted NT$1,050 for a battery that looked at least 10 years old so I told him thanks but no thanks.
My regular shop said they can probably order a modern dry cell replacement and will confirm on Monday but failing that I’ll take you up on your kind offer
