I just had to order a Yuasa 6volt battery for my YSR and was wondering if you guys know how they ship... Meaning do I have to add electrolyte to the battery when it gets here? Where can I buy electrolyte and is it expensive to buy? If I add electrolyte light, is it fully charged at that point or do I have to charge it? Should I use distilled water instead of electrolyte? I got a Battery Tender Plus to use to charge it for whatever reason if needed...

Thanks.

you can clarify it with them Jason but often they'll ship the electrolite and battery separately and you add it yourself.

AT my local shop when he gets batteries shipped the electrolyte is not installed in the battery but shipped in the same box in a sealed compartment of course
and when you get the battery you got to fill it up and charge it

You can get a bottle at just about any Sears auto center, part number is 028 44000 and should cost about less than $5. I used to be a manager at a few of the auto centers.

Thanks for all the info. guys, I made some calls just incase it does not come with it. Looks like it is about $5 at my local auto parts store. I was told to add it and let the battery sit for an hour before topping it off on the Battery Tender.
