Measure it and stop my a metric cycle shop and find one for the largest displacement bike that will fit in the space. They should be listed by cold cranking amps also. Or try a aftermarket company like interstate, long as you know the size of the battery they can tell you the strongest one that will be the same size .

I went with the Odyssey PC680 for my 04 V2 and it turned it over a LOT better. Spun it over like nothing in the winter too, so that was great.

Wow, that PC680 is $126. That seems a little steep, but if it lasts for 4 or 5 years, it would be worth it.

Get what you pay for, I have one and it's worth every cent. It's a gell cell, so there's no water to evaporate when under heavy loads, it recovers faster, more cranking amps and a lot longer reserve. It's also a lot more resistant to shock and vibration as the plates are supported better, immersed in gel instead of water.. Uhh, no I don't sell 'em, but I guess I should eh? slaphappy

What I find annoying is that lawn tractor batteries are about half the size of a regular car battery, have lots of cranking power and are dirt cheap but are a little too large to fit in ATVs. Why wouldn't the ATV manufacturers make the battery compartment large enough for lawn tractor batteries to fit? We'd be paying $30.00 rather than $75.00 to $100.00 for a replacement battery.
