Correct battery for 1974GT?

Post by [email protected] » Fri Nov 28, 2008 1:29 pm

What is the correct battery size and brand for a 1974 750GT? Is brand originality important on these bikes?

Thank you,
Stephen

Hey Stephen,
Brand originality is probably only important depending on what you are planning to do with the bike. (concours showing etc)
Kick start only models had a Yuasa 12H12A-4A.
If you have an electric start you would need a Yuasa B68-12V 32Ah.
Hope this helps,
Dean

He's right! Vibration and marginal charging will quickly kill the cheap ones.
