Replaced my shorting starter (and made a new 10ga cable for it) a few months ago, but apparently it took the battery with it as even leaving it on the battery tender without fail, starting was a crapshoot. Wasn't sure the bigger 14 (off-brand is CTX14-BS) would fit in place of the original YTX12-BS, but decided to give it a try. The dimensions are the same, except the height (or "width" as mounted in the bike), which is roughly a centimeter larger.

As you can see it took some Dremel work but I got it in. It's near the exhaust heat shield so I added some aluminum tape, but I think it'll be okay. Could add some fiberglass. Might be able to cut out the other side instead, but it'd be a bigger hole and there may be frame or wiring on that side.

Cranks like a champ! Hopefully my charging system is okay and it'll be reliable for me in the future...
