OK..heres the comparison the stock Yuasa is 150mm X 87mm X 93mm and the Odyssey is................................................ ......... 138mm X 86mm X101mm
So assuming the 8mm extra height will fit, the odyssey fits nicely otherwise.
The MSRP on the odyssey is 173.95 but, I see it everywhere on the net for a bit under 120.00 (circa 128.00 shipped). Not sure what my local retailer is asking. The yuasa usually retails for around 105 bucks but I see them on the net for 85.00 shipped.
The Odyssey boasts 310 CCA for 5 seconds compared to the yuasas 190 CCA and the odyssey is considered a deep cycle battery. The odyssey is also 1.1 Pounds lighter than the Yuasa (5.9 Lbs compared to 7 Lbs) ---yeahaw! Odyssey claims a 6 year service life which is supposed to be three times longer than conventional batteries. Except for the slightly higher price the odyssey looks like the clear winner. Its also lighter than the 7 Lb Westco battery.
