Powersports, ATVs, and Motorcycle Battery Cross Reference Chart

weize ytx12 bs w250pxPowersports, ATVs, motorcycle, etc. batteries are starting or dual-purpose lead-acid or lithium batteries designed for providing strong currents required for cranking their internal combustion engines.

Powersports, ATVs, and motorcycle batteries are small to medium in size, built to be mechanically and vibration resistant, with most modern batteries being sealed, maintenance-free batteries.

As such, these batteries are also used in countless other applications, like starting batteries in lawn tractors, snowmobiles, boats, power generators, and similar.

Buying a new Powersports, ATV or motorcycle battery is very similar to buying a larger car, boat, yacht or even industrial battery - the buyer has to be aware of battery size and type, terminals type and orientation, voltage, capacity, Cold Cranking Amps (CCA value) and few more details.

The lead-acid batteries may be wet/flooded (maintenance intensive), AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat), or Gel-cell batteries.

Most wet lead-acid batteries are delivered with 'dry' cells - battery comes together with bottles containing the exact amount of sulfuric acid for every cell and after filling the cells with acid, the battery may be charged fully.

Note that even some 'sealed' AGM batteries come with acid in bottles, requiring the user to fill the cells and seal off the battery.

Personally: sulfuric acid is nasty and dangerous - go for sealed AGM or Gel-cell battery and forget bottles with acid. Just my 2c.

noco genius g15000Sealed AGM and Gel-Cell lead-acid batteries are 'almost' maintenance-free batteries. We say 'almost' since the user should check the connectors periodically due to possible corrosion issues (rarely with sealed batteries, but nonetheless possible) and, if possible, recharge the battery fully once or twice per year with the smart AGM battery charger.

Smart AGM battery chargers: not only that they charge the batteries, smart AGM battery chargers analyze the batteries, charge them according to their condition and in the end, they equalize the cells, and maintain the battery charge as long as the battery is connected.

Also, most modern AGM battery chargers are able to charge lithium batteries as well using special charging mode intended only for these batteries.

Lithium batteries cost more than AGM/Gel-cell batteries, but they are also much lighter - saved weight also means better performances.

However, only 'drop-in' lithium starting battery replacements with protective electronics should be used instead of AGM/Gel-cell batteries. Such batteries may be charged using a vehicle's onboard alternator only if they are designed as 'drop-in replacement'. If the lithium battery is NOT designed as 'drop-in replacement', charging such battery with, for example, motorcycle's alternator may be very dangerous since such charging can cause lithium battery to overheat, catch fire, and even to explode. Seriously!

Personally: if You are Pro rider, take out the alternator and your old lead-acid battery and mount a fine starting lithium battery and charge it after each race/event with lithium battery charger (actually, if You are a pro, you are probably already doing this). If You are not a pro, go for good and reliable AGM/Gel-cell battery and let the onboard alternator charge it as any other lead-acid battery and enjoy your ride - safely!

Note: Amazon links open in the new windows, feel free to check them for the most up-to-date offers and prices.

Odyssey batteries are designed as dual-purpose batteries and can be used as excellent staring batteries, but also as deep cycle batteries.

As such, they are often used not only as Powersports/motorcycle batteries but also as kayak trolling motor batteries, as fish finder batteries and similar.


Long Story Short: When looking for a new Powersports battery, be sure to check actual battery size and type, check the terminals (type, orientation), actual voltage and capacity, and battery's CCA rating.

So, choose according to your own personal needs and requirements.

YTX9-BS Battery Cross Reference Chart

weize ytx9 bs w150pxYTX9-BS is a very popular Powersports battery, commonly used in ATVs, motorcycles, scooters, snowmobiles, power generators, and other similar applications as a starting battery for smaller internal combustion engines.

YTX-BS is a sealed battery (BS - Battery Sealed), although there are wet/flooded lead-acid batteries made in this size as well.
