    Two things to notice: the massive size difference and the condition of the old battery. We bought this vehicle used with a "full" service...that probably didn't include topping off the battery as the tops of the plates were dry.

    The hold down bracket gave me hell but it's in there. These screws are not something I'm used to with a high tpi and resistance into close to bottom. Maybe I don't have the bolt holding the bracket down tight...maybe it's stripped but I did fit some adhesive backed foam stripped between the battery and frame bits.

    Update: I've removed the foam and zip-tied cut up inner tubes to the frame rails and over the top of the battery between the bracket and over the terminals. Much happier with the install.


    The biggest problem is that I drove one hour with some tools to the ranch to do the install and didn't bring something to pry the bracket into place...or the key to check the output of the voltage regulator.

    Glad the post helped! Now I need the help!
    I ride about once every 2 months (yes I know, I should be ashamed).
    This battery has done nothing but give me aggravation...it goes dead over and over, and I keep it on an AGM special charger!!

    Now today we can't get it charged at all. It's kaput!
    Hubby is tird of messing with it! Same Odyssey in his ACE has no issues!
    30 months old and looks like out of warranty at 24 months. Grrrr!

    Anybody else have problems with Odyssey batteries?
    I thought they were supposed to be SOOOOO good and last up to 10 years!!

    Now I have the fun of trying to get that sucker out of that tight spot!

    Just want to know to this battery upgrade, was the battery getting enough charge from your Ace or did it require extra charging when you got home. Awesome guide BTW.

    It turned out to be a bad battery, replaced it and all has been good for 2 years.
