Battery

Anyone try squeezing a YTX9BS into the battery compartment? It's a little longer and a little taller than the YTZ10S but, by my measuring tape, it just might fit.
Why am I asking? My old battery crapped out a while back. I currently use my Ballistic EVO 12 cell in the 919. I'm trying to sell the bike but, I'm definitely not including my $200 LiFe battery. Nobody carries a 10s in my area but I can pick up a ES9BS (YTX9) at Walmart on the cheap. I'm an impatient bastard, plus I refuse to buy anything off of ebay because I disagree with their policies.
Thanks

Got it whittled down to a sensible two bikes.

Go with a Shorai Lithium for that amount of $$$.

It's probably 3x's SMALLER than the stock battery, and you can think of what extra bits you can stuff in the battery compartment with the space savings.

Ummmm, no offense but, did you actually read my post?
I'm trying to sell the bike, and don't want to include my $200 LiFe battery. I'm looking for a quick cheap, get-the-bike-started battery. Why would I drop major coin on a Shorai at this point?

Don't sweat it man. I've stuck my foot in my mouth so often, I've got athlete's lips.

I have never bought from them. I saved this link that I'm sure I got from a post on here. Price looks like what you want. I would be skeptical that a bigger battery would fit, the stock one is pretty tight once the cables are connected.

Yuasa YTZ10S Motorcycle Battery

It's a Yacht instead of Yuasa


I bought a replacement from here. Only had it in for a month but so far it seems just fine.

I have a hell of a time getting the stock sized battery in, with the addition of a few wires...I couldn't imagine bulking the battery up and having luck there.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Called up my local Honda dealer today, and ordered the OEM equivalent for $80 +/-. They're great guys, and I don't mind supporting them. Plus, they'll have it in by tomorrow afternoon. Thanks for the input.

I think my input was by far the best. Not afraid to admit it, lol...
