You should probably start referring to the battery #... rather than the application... as the CBR600 depending on the year, uses a few different batteries.

I am assuming your referring to the common upgrade to the YTZ10S battery (it is slightly larger and requires you to trim some of the battery box out to make room)

We have the Yuasa stock replacment battery, as well as the Yuasa YTZ10S in stock... Yuasa is a pricey battery, but it is a high quality battery... they actually make many of the OEM batteries for the manufacturers.

The older model YFZs tended to have a problem charging batteries, and I think the upgraded battery helped that a bit. They also have more cold crank amps. As far as the newer model YFZs, I'm not sure what the advantage is.

Stock battery barely has enough power to turn the engine over. Very frustrating when you're trying to get restarted during a race and the starter keeps stopping.

Ahh, didn't know that. The battery was dead when I bought my YFZ, so I just went ahead and upgraded it. That would be pretty w00tery though.

Just so you know, Interstate batteries are the same as Yuasa and will cost you half of the price of a Yuasa. Even all the paper work inside the box says Yuasa. I just replaced mine a few weeks ago. I dont remember the model right now, but I still have the box in the garage and will post a pic maybe tomorrow. I just had to trim a little the battery box like mentioned above.

The replacement ones that RMATV sells for the raptor 350 are also pretty good for a fraction of the yuasa.

My dealer sells the Yuasa for $110. Interstate wanted $160 when I called them last year.

I think the ones that are compatible without trimming will only give you stock performance. It's not hard to trim it, so don't be skurred.

Actually I thought it was a huge pain in the ass cutting that battery box out. At least if you want it to look halfway decent it is.

Get a Deka Glass Mat. No acid and nearly 4 times the cranking amps of stock, lifetime guarantee and it will never dead cell during a race or lose voltage from being jar'd around. By far the best battery I've ever saw in my life and at 70$ they are well worth it.

4 times the cranking amps, huh? So a little quad battery is as powerful as a car battery? And this technology for half the price of the Yuasa battery? I'm going to have to check into this............
