What size?

The odyssey website says that they don't have a battery to fit my '06 KLR but then they said the same thing about my '07 GS and I managed to make one fit.

The clutch on my '07 GSA has slipped occasionally and randomly. It always happens at high speed and full throttle but it doesn't do it all the time, only once in a while. I suspect that the common...
