Battery

Virago 250 battery

———————-

Stock XV250 battery

10 Amp/hours / weight 9.46 lbs or 4.3 kg / 5.3” L x 3.4” D x 5.8” H

I replaced the stock 10 amp battery with an 8 amp/hour AGM battery.

The battery that I bought: 8 amp/hour YTX9-BS AGM battery – 8 Ah
weight 6.4 lbs or 2.9 kg / 5.875” L x 3.38” D x 4.25” H / $25.50 shipped / weight reduction 3.1 lbs.

The 5.9 inch length made it very hard to install – I had to cut the battery tray so I could expand it by 0.4 inch or 10 mm.

(note:  advertised weight and dimensions were was 5.4 lbs / 6.0” L x 3.35” D x 4.19” H)
