It sounds about right. The R1 battery is a handful of money unfortunatly. Spend an extra $20-30 and get a bettery tender, they work really well.;)

batteries can go for much longer than 2-3 years!
with the proper treatment,it can last 10-12 years.

i have a VDC electronics charger,its made to be kept on the battery 365 days a year if you want to,and they also sell one a notch better with a desulfating property.

the last one is about $40.
get one before changing battery.

for more infos on batteries,visit my site in the service section.(which page exactly,i do not remember!)
