The battery on the Z has finally given up on me after over 2 years. I read on here before that you can use a bigger battery but can't find it on the search function. What do you guys recommend to use?

Cheers

I have been using the YTX14-BS or equivalent. It is a higher cranking battery and fits great. You just have to flip the mount over to use it. I put some 3/8" tubing split in half along the edges of the flipped mount to prevent it from cutting into the battery. You will also need some longer mounting screws. Pretty easy conversion though. I have one in both of my 400s.

14bs is perfect i had a bikmaster 9bs in mine when i built the 470 couldnt even get two cranks out of it .. Switched to an energizer 12bs from walmart .. It starts my bike and powers everything no problem now but i should have went as big as possible since these things have no kick start!

Have you looked into the Antigravity Lithium batteries? Super tiny but put out amazing power. I have a 8 cell Antigravity. It weighs ~2lbs and puts out almost double the cranking amps as a stock sized battery.

Seems like I remember someone talking about using an electric wheelchair battery in a previous thread? Or am I thinking of something else?

I would definitely look up lithium batteries also, they are tiny and light if you get one that is about same size you should have a lot more power in it then a regular battery
just remember to also buy a new charger that can handle lithium.
