Motorcross Platnum YT7B-BS

Recommended Posts

My Yuasa battery died. My wife surprised me by getting me a replacement from our local battery store. It's a Motorcross Platnum, and it was $65. Before I install it I wanted to know if it has the same CCA rating as the Yuasa, but cannot find that particular rating on the Motorcross brand website. Does anyone have any experience with this replacement battery? In my opinion the Yuasa barely has the power required for the DRZ, I don't want a battery with less power.

 

Any info is appreciated,

I would imagine it would be in the specs on the box or the battery itself, otherwise I would be a little dubious about using it.

Original Yuasa battery was rated 85 CCA.  Current replacements are are rated 120 CCA since about 2010.  Is there really a difference or just a revised method of rating the battery?? Wish I knew.

 

I suspect your Motocross Platinum will be 85 CCA same as your old Yuasa.  

 

I'm currently using a 120 CCA LynVick.  I can't tell the difference from any other battery Yuasa or other cheepo.

 

Thank your wife and instal the battery.

My pointless two cents... If my wife, gf, or any woman was awesome enough to bring a battery for my drz, I'd just be stoked about it. 

 

I got 3.5 years use out of my stock battery and that was with being stupid leaving the key on a few times.

Thanks BlackDRZ, I found that as well but don't see CCA for Motorcross brand.

 

Noble, good advice. Battery is in the bike, wife properly thanked. Glad to see your still on the forum, I've been away.

Yes, she is pretty awesome. I got about 6+ years from my Yuasa, so no complaints.

When you do the vehicle search on that link, it brings up your battery and the specs which are the same as the Yuasa.
