Hi, I am 17 and just got my first bike. A 2001 SV650 with 2100 miles. It's been sitting a while and the battery is near dead, last time I started it we had to jump start it. I work at a store that has auto parts and the only batteries we carry are optima and exide (which makes champion powersports batteries). I can't seem to find the exide battery I need for my bike and I get a discount if I go with exide or optima, but I don't think optima makes motorcycle batteries. Anyways, anyone know what stock number battery I need? If not where is a good place to buy a battery? My dad also says the thing to get is also a gel cell? how much do those cost? Thanks in advance. BTW I LOVE this bike. I've ridden dirt bikes and this thing has PLENTY of power for my first road bike. I've only hit 7500 rpms a few times since I haven't opened it up on the freeway yet but when I have it just pulls like crazy.
