I'm needing a battery for my 700. I was looking at getting a cheap one from Ebay for about 35 bucks. Are they worth it? Will they fit?

I have been to autozone and oriellys. Both stores have looked up a different model # battery and both were the wrong size and had no chance of fitting correctly so I am tired of the screw ups and want it right, just don;t want to give yamaha $150 for a new one.

Does anyone have the exact measurments of the factory battery so I know what will fit? I am traveling and want the battery at my front door ready to pop in soon as I get home.

Ebay shows their battery as model # BT-AGM-YT9B-BS(MF)and its size is 150mm x 70mm x 105mm

In my opinion a 35$ battery is better.... Because chances are your going to kill it by a short anyway so a 150 battery will get killed too at the same time.

Im also needed info on a good battery. I noticed TQS sells a Power Sonic Maintenance Free Battery for $70 bucks not sure if its a good one.

forget those garbage lead acid batterys and go with a lithium. Way better CCA and a 1/5th of the weight. Your going to want an 8 cell for a raptor or 450. Well worth the money

Is what I run ^ or if you have some extra money and want something that has a solid casing and such go with http://www.ballisticparts.com/products/batteries/8cell.php
I am not so sure I would want a li-po in my bike with all the jarring around it will be getting.....li-po's have a tendency to explode violently when overcharged or catch fire when shorted.:wow:

Good luck with that.

You need to do some research you are highly mis-informed. Keep your lead weight acid battery. ;)
Ok after letting fingers get ahead of brain, I see they are lithuim phosphate and not lithium polymer batterys....my bad...call me stupid, I have been called worse by better:) I have used li-po's in my RC helo's for years, so I am well aware of the dangers.......so I stand corrected and will STFU.:D

Best battery you can buy, Shorai Lithium 18AH. Weighs 5 lbs less than stock. Has 270 CCA, almost 3 times the factory. Has same dimmensions than the factory battery. Its a lithiom Ion Phosphate... NO ACID. Had mine for one year, start the bike up every 6 months and no problem. Never had to charge it.
