    Looks like a good option and will be on my to-do list. Mine has failed to start in the cold (after sitting for a couple weeks). Not thrilled with the price of the bracket, agree with the comment they made about ++$$.

    I'd been thinking about upgrading my battery and already had the $50 bracket on an eBay seller watch list. Thanks again for posting the video with links, since I used ended up buying on Amazon. Actually, same battery sold by O'Reilly being private labelled version Made in USA by East Penn Mfg / Deka as shown here. Saved enough on Amazon (shipped with no tax or core charge) to offset cost of that bracket!

    ^^^ Amazon link below to the private labelled Deka version I bought for my MavT. As noted, its equivalent to other brands:

    The stock battery went dead, 2v, after sitting for about a month. Dirtdawg’s ETX30 sitting for the same duration fired right up! Bought a ETX30LA (A implies it comes with a spacer) and mounted in using plumber’s strap with the spacer over the top. Not the most beautiful but functional.

    ^^^ Noting that Yattr's "bubba" strap method (hidden from view under driver's seat) allowed continuation next day of White Mtns OHV playtime without needing to order Can-Am's $50 mtg brkt for the larger case size battery...
