If you do a Google search for "Y50-N18L" you'll find quite a few that will fit.

Great, I just went out to start my 1100 and the battery is dead. No life at all. It was on a tender all cold winter. I had put in a gel cell last year in hopes that it would last more than a couple of years. Guess I lost that one. At least now I don't have to dig out that old one before stopping by the store to pick up a new one tomorrow.

I have a friend that lost 2 year old batteries to the "Battery Tender".He's not impressed.

That's interesting. I used to have batteries die every two years. Ever since I put my bikes full time (any time they are parked) on Battery Tenders, I haven't changed a battery. Now at five years and counting.

I use a simple timer that plugs into the wall socket, then plug the small 2 amp charger to it. Set it to come on for 1 hour each 24 hours. I get 4 to 5 years on both my GL 1100 and my 67 Electra Glide. Of course I check the water every 4 weeks and use distilled water. In the summer I hardly ever hook the chargers up because I ride a lot. Down here in south Ms. we ride almost year round. At my age (71) I usually don't ride if it'slower than 35. Guess I'm getting old. :-)
