    72 SuperSport (egg)- battery?

    Iím trying to source a battery for a recent 72 250 SuperSport I just picked up.
    I know the battery isnít very critical- but Iím having a bit of a problem sourcing one that would fit properly.

    Anyone find something?

    That is a 12V- might be just a bit long too (but a moot point).

    I couldnít find just a dimension listing on the Yuasa site. That would be the ticket.

    thanks for looking.

    Mark- what did you end up finding for a dimensionally correct battery? Are you in the UK or USA?

    I could not find anything that fit- so I just put in something and used spacers to keep it in place.

    Iím in the States (NW Washington State, right across from Victoria, BC)

    OK. And what brand and part number was it, please? Manual calls for Safa 3 V 2, 8 AH. I asked your location so that battery numbers and suppliers will work if we're on the same continent.

    I am pretty sure this was the one.
    I could not find any 8AH 6V batteries anywhere.

    I just bought this so I could have something, and I managed to fit it in there. I would like to find one that fits better- but it doesnít really do all that much, so I didnít worry about it too much.
