Need battery for CB350 ?

Hi Guy's
I want to go AGM and would love a Motobatt, but I am in Canada and
can't finf a supplier in Canada. Anyone have any info?
I would take the yuasa ( YTX14AH-BS ) but the dimensions seem a little too big to fit in the box. Any one know the correct # of an agm that would replace the old 12N12A-4A-1.
Many thanks
Now if I could just get rid of this 30cm of snow that fell yesterday!!
Mike

Motobatt is a Chinese made, overpriced mediocre quality AGM. i've had three.

These are North American made, priced very reasonably, great quality

Not all the Deka motorcycle batteries are made in North America. Maybe just the AGM type? I have two Deka's and they are both made in Taiwan. One is for a Suzuki Hayabusa and the other is for a CB450K5 which is the same size as battery as the CB350 (12N12A-4A-1). Both are the flooded cell type. Deka dosen't have a AGM battery in the right size for the smaller Honda's. They do have one for the CB750K1-K7

These guys liked the Motobatt http://www.intruderalert.com/cafe/in...topicID=157926

Mike, are you "CTRIDER" on the Honda Twins forum? Looks like somebody ordered a Motobatt for his CB450K0. Hopefully he posts if it fits or not.

My results were poor with the Deka battery for the Honda. It lasted just over 2 years. One of the cells shorted out.

I'm going with a replacement battery from Advance Auto Parts for $28. Use promo code P20. http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/web...raft_2090017-p
