Battery for '07 GS Adv.

Ok, I know there are other battery threads out there. I did try to search. My question is this, will a Odyssey PC680 fit into a '07 GS Adventure?

I can swear I read that it will not. I am leaving on a trip day after tomorrow and need to replace my battery by then.

Thanks in advance for your help.

No, you need the PC535, or, with many mods, the PS 625.

See this: http://www.jimvonbaden.com/R1200_GS_Battery_Swap.html

The left is the Camhead Adventure, then the regular GS and Adventure (same size as the PC535) and last the PC 625.

Hey Jim, any idea what we should expect from the life of a PC 625? With car batteries I usually figure 3 years, but not as much experience with MC batteries.

The 625 is a bit of overkill, but it should last a good long time. Many report that the PC535 has lasted 7 years, and I do not expect less from the PC 625.

Just checked, I actually have the 535 installed. My recollection is that I put it in 3-4 years ago.

Every once in a while feels like it doesn't have quite the oomph, especially on the very rare occasions where I have to hit the button a second time.

It's much better than the OEM, of course, which simply sucked, especially in very cold weather

I'll keep on keeping on with the 535 until it actually stops working. So far, so good.

Does anybody know which Odyssey will fit a cam-head GS Adventure?

A PC535 will drop in, once you remove the spacer and a PC625 will fit with significant cutting on the battery and seat bar mods.
