Besides going to a dealership does anyone have any other ideas where a person I could get a replacement battery for my 1983 Yamaha Venture?

Hey Darryl, Theres a place in Kitchener on Lawrence Ave called The Battery House. I think they will be able to help you if you wanted to come into Kitchener.

Hey Darryl. I got battery for my 86 at Batteries R Us in Woodstock. Around 100 bucks cheaper than the dealer wanted.

No worries Tom. Canadian Tire no longer carries the Battery for my bike. But I do appreciate letting me know.

With the newer style of batteries will not allow you to use the battery option on an older Venture. The bike needs to have a hole to send the electrolyte prope to send a signal to the computer. If you don't use the probe you will have a red battery light on the dash.

Since 90% of batteries are completely sealed now, you may have to make some hard decisions. A perminate light on the dash or find an old style battery or attempt to drill a battery.

Thanks for that info. That explains why the battery right now looks like the hole was made bye hand the probe goes into now.

A little bit of black electrical tape will solve the red light issue ;)

Or a less destructive idea might be Black Nail Polish. LOL
