I got the battery today (ETX18B) and can confirm it fits in the X-Challenge. It was snug, height-wise, but fit fine. No problem with the other dimensions. Thanks for the help.

Great to know. You didn't take a pic by chance...?

New battery

I went on your site to see what battery would fit a 2007 Yamaha XT225 and it directed me to the OEM Yuasa.That can't be right unless you don't make one for my application.Brian

There's a bunch of pics here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=4379

Also, it started up fine the other day (about 36F) after sitting in my unheated garage.

Hi, The batteries ARE sized to match OEM so we use Yuasa dimensions and capacities. Right below the finder buttons is the corresponding Yuasas on the right column. (A bit pixelated, sorry)

Your OEM would be a YTZ7S which matches our ETX12A

Thanks

Jim

What battery

Ok-went on the site and put that # in-at the very least it wants to sell me a big heavy battery.I have a great( big) heavy battery now.I was wondering if you have a small light battery to replace my current battery.I can't justify spending the money otherwise.It seems your replacement is 4.2 pounds-is that the lightest battery that will work?

Hello. I would be interested in a battery booster that would attach to the SAE lead that goes directly to my motorcycle's battery so that I could start it if my main battery somehow drained. Also do you have a main battery replacement suitable for a 2012 Speed Triple? Your website lists none. Apologies if this has been addressed earlier in the thread.

Here's the correct battery for a Speed Triple:

ETX18C

Just FYI, If you drain your battery, you still need to disconnect it before the spare will work. Drained battery will just suck all the power out of the good one.
