CCAs stated on a battery are only part of the story. Check out this Odyssey write up.

I can tell you that the speed that my 109 turns over is much faster, especially when hot with the Gman Odyssey. The stock battery feels weak in comparison even when new.

No, I don't work for them, just a happy customer passing along what I consider a great find for our bikes.

Absolutely. Even sitting for the last 2-3 weeks in sub freezing temps, no tender on, ours start like they are on steroids with the odyssey's in them. Absolutely love them.

I too have the GMan Odyssey. Can't speak on it though, ordered it since I've been out of the US.

Heard good things though.

I just looked at ebatteriestogo.com and they list 2 batteries for the M109; a 14 AH rated at 230 CCAs and and an 18 AH rated at 270 CCAs. I will tell you from experience that the 14 AH is not up to the job (the 9 I bought had one and only lasted a year, and that's in the warm south). I went with the GMan battery and all is good now; starts like a new battery, cold or hot. I believe the GBat is rated at 260 CCAs; I could not find the AH rating.

Has anyone check out these guys http://www.impactbattery.com/brands/motobatt/yuasa-ytx16-bs-ytx16-bs-1-motobatt-replacement-battery.html

I have the GBat in my Intruder 1400, it's the same size as the battery in the 109. It is an awesome battery. :bigthumbsup:

There was a member on the Intruder Forum that tested a few batterys. The Motobatt seemed to be the best, followed closely by the GBat.

Me as well! Got mine around Christmas but was so cold and 4' of snow, figured why put it in ain't going no where!
So it's been setting on my Bedroom rug, nice and toasty warm. But it will be going is SOON!!!!! Heard nothing but good things about this battery. But can't bitch about my stocker, it lasted nearly a full 5 years:bigthumbsup: And I never took it out of my bike in the winter or ever had to charge it, till the end of it's 5th. year.

Thats the same thing that happened with me and I couldn't wait either so I found a local guy who had the Odessey PC535 in stock and just modded it to fit.. Took 2 minutes on a belt sander to shave the fins :bigthumbsup:
