Well, I was able to verify that there is an aftermarket battery available for the 99-02 R6.

Batteries Plus - Ask for a 9-BS motorcycle battery. I got one for $45.18 and it's a sealed "spill-proof" battery that drops right in. Just wanted to post up for people that are having the battery leak problem or need to replace theirs and do not want to spend the absurd $170 that Yamaha is now charging for a replacement battery.

The battery that I got from Batteries Plus has no possible way of leaking. It's a sealed gel-cell that has no venting or relief holes. There is physically no way the battery can leak.

If you're going to replace your battery, make sure it's the sealed gel-cell type.

Have you tried compression starting? Charging battery (NOT car battery charger) if those dont work, wel lets just say I hope that works.
