The gel battery made in Vietnam I bought some years ago from Reichel Elektronik for my R75/5 just died from one day to the next. Got a new one.I was not very surprised, the battery was not a starter battery, so I was quite surprised that it lasted so long. Caloocan Sales Center in Manila had a cool replacement on stock, a AGM battery with same dimensions and even 3 Ah more capacity than the Vietnamese one and 6Ah more than the BMW original as specified in the 1971 documentation. And according to the specs 20% more cranking power. Mavic brought it today, mounted it this evening and will test it tomorrow.
But – its so yellow. Now I need to use the side covers.
