What is the better one of the batteries to get for a 400EX? I was thinking of getting one of the Ever Starts at WalMart.

Hay Mud stick with the oem battery from honda and get you a battery tender and hook it up when your not riding your battery will last a long time, don't waste your money on cheap batteries they don't last.

I have a OEM battery on mine and it has lasted me 3 years. I rarely use the battery tender on it. It has been a good battery. I will buy another one when time is up on that one.

Interstate produces 90% of batteries manufactured companies and factory spec batteries just put ther lables on them. I believe Douglas is the other. I sent an email to Optima to see if they manufacture a gel cell ATV battery. I run optima in my car and van as well as the boats best battery IMO.

My dad has the Optima in his boat. Did you hear any thing back from Optima on the ATV battery.

I use to make Optima Batteries. They have a manufacturing plant here in Aurora. FILTHY job. You would not believe how many of the batteries they make fail inspection and have to be destroyed. I don't see them making an ATV battery anytime soon. It is a Johnsons Control company. You would probably have better luck contacting them.
