    What brand are you looking for? I recommend Odyssey, just Google the battery manufacturer and part number, hit the shopping tab and you will be inundated with options.

    for some reason when I checked out, it applied another discount and ended up being about $57 shipped by standard shipping.

    Do you want low price or high quality?

    Just put an Odyssey 680 in my 01 last week that I ordered from Battery Mart. I was getting an ABS fault on every morning start, even after keeping it on a battery tender. No more faults. I am very pleased with the battery even though it was not cheap.

    I got the 20l-bs

    the specs show it as too big, but the chart they display shows it fitting.
    I found another source that showed that size as a replacement, so I gambled and ordered it.

    if you order and it doesnt fit dont blame me!

    :D

    but according to this chart, it will fit

    I saw the sizes but that spec on amazon made me nervous.

    THanks!

    Your right

    "Note: This product is delivered with an Exact-Fill Premeasured Acid Bottle, meaning there will be no leftover acid to dispose of "

    Oh well, that's no big deal. I'd be happy getting only 2 years out of it at this price, anything more and that's icing on my cake.

    This is what i got, looks like it should fit.

    For my 2006 KTM 640 ADV, I went with the ATZ10SBS. Amazon says it's too big, but the ACdelco PDF dimensions nearly match (a little smaller) the stock Yuasa (YTZ10S).

    The battery for the KTM doesn't show up in the "Battery finder tool". It only show spark plugs.

    Just FYI
