Did you fit the YB5L-B to your Kayak?
No, just the C90. This set me thinking, the smaller (probably equivalent to the YB4 size) battery in the Kayak is doing very well considering it's size! After a 3 month lay up with no trickle it spun up very quickly and started instantly.

I will pull the battery tomorrow and check the dimensions for future reference. The battery mount is completely different to the C90 as it is buried in the frame more. It's all a learning curve for me. :D I do have a YB4 battery in the crusty Cub to compare.

I need to get the bike in the warm anyway to get rid of the nasty ribbed 2.25 front tyre and replace it with a 2.5 M45.

That would be great.

Here's the proper dimensions:

Lextec
Length: 120mm
Width: 70mm
Height: 92mm

Rider's:
Length: 110mm
Width: 67mm
Height: 87mm (89mm to top of terminal screw head)

I think the longer length for the YBL4-B is due to the breather?

The original Rider's unit is a maintenance free type, hence the 110mm length I guess?

Riders battery box with a cub battery in it to show the breather on the battery catches the lid on it.
Honda one at the back.

Riders and Honda to show that the Riders one will sit further back in the frame.

Good post Steve.

What was your solution?

I imagine you could trim the metal of the Rider's cage and then bolt it back up?

Or did you fit the Honda cage to the frame?

Edit:
Was the battery a YBL4 or a YBL5 for the Honda battery?

I suspect that this is the actual battery with a fancy label?

YTX4L-B/ GT4L-BS / M62X4B/

Sealed units may well be the correct solution.

113L x 69W x 87H (mm)

Battery was YBL4 only got the riders cage as i had some riders side panels i wanted to use but they would not fit with the Honda cage.
May just file a bit out of the bracket or go for a sealed battery.

Yes, good post Steve!

Didn't get the opportunity to do my own research today. Spot of trouble involving losing my door key and having to track down a keyholder. :oops:
