6N6-3B-1 battery for DT400 was created by msavitt

I have been using old fashioned lead acid batteries in bikes but am curious about trying a sealed unit in my DT400.

Is there a downside to a sealed unit vs. lead acid that one fills up with acid?

Is there a recommended brand that's relaible?

Check out makosun’s blog entry in the headers at the top of this page. Great explanation. I bought a bike master and a Duracell version recently. Both work fine.

The  Enersys NP4-6  6V 4Ah battery will fit in the tray laying down. You have to put in a spacer or something to protect the terminals. These are available from a lot of sources - even Lowes where they are in the emergency lighting section. I’ve used these in most of my 6 volt bikes, including my Honda CT70! They can usually be had for under $10 from other brands, and seem to outlast the acid filled by about double.
IF it isn't one thing, it's another.
