You're going to need a 19 Ahr battery with lots of CCAs...more the better. Most if us with oilheads go for the Odyssey battery. They are reliable, no maintenance, lots of CCAs and typically last well past other brands. Mine is 5 years old and has never been charged and has never failed to start my '01 GS....NEVER. Jap inline engines have a much different bore-stroke ratio and starter designs and hence spin faster. The boxer is a twin with huge bores comparatively and therefore, the starter sounds much different and also requires more muscle, hence, a bigger battery.
