Cagiva Gran Canyon, which battery to use?

I picked up a nice Gran Canyon a few months back and I am ready to replace the battery with a new one. I would prefer an Odyssey, and from searching the old interweb that seems to be the battery to use, but based on the tape measure, none are a good fit. Anybody got a model # for the battery they stuffed into their GC? I do not want to cut up the battery box.

Thanks !

Odyssey PC680!

Use the Odyssey PC680, it's an exact fit and available from Amazon with standard shipping.

Here's some info from Odyssey regarding heat reistant cases as the GC battery is just above the exhaust.

The ODYSSEY series number is PC680. The MJ stands for Metal Jacket. The P stands for Powersports marketing labeling. The T stands for SAE automotive posts. A metal jacket would be required in battery compartment locations where the temperatures are similar to those that you would find in the engine compartment of an automobile exceeding about 115-120F. The performance ratings would be the same for any model PC680 regardless of the installation of SAE automotive posts or a metal jacket.

Thank you for your inquiry. I hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Perfect!!! I am betting it is a very snug fit. The old battery was not quite as tall as the PC680 and it was a chore getting to the connections. I've got one on the way!

Thanks.

PC 680 is correct, but it does not have automotive posts, and you would not want them. Also, I've never heard of a "metal case" for heat insulation/rejection, as the GC has a rubber type pad that the battery sits on. It fits well, with normal amounts of room for cabling, even with the 4gauge cables that are reccomended to replace the crappy Italian wiring. If you ever have worked on a GC you know the saying "10 lbs. of stuff, in a 4lb. box" It's ALL a tight fit.
