New owner of a used r3. Bike has been sitting over the winter and now the battery is dead. Should i be getting a after market battery or the ytz8v by yuasa (oem?). I live in new york if that helps.
Thanks in advance.

Is it dead dead, or just discharged dead? Any battery that fits should do the job. Lithiums are more expensive but a lot lighter.

Not sure, but i am able to push start the bike with a friend. I will def try and see if i can charge it back up. My only fear if i take it out on my own and on return i would not be able to start it again.
Thank you to everyone that replied.

Get an optimate charger and use it if your bike is going to be sitting for long periods of time. See if you can find a shop that will charge and load test your battery to see if it is good before replacing.
