With few expections Yuasa Battery, Inc. is the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of most all power sport battery applications. In fact Honda has been using Yuasa's batteries since 1979 and other major bike and power sport manufacturers such as Harley-Davidson, Kawasaki, Cannondale, Buell, and Polaris Victory, to name a few, have followed suit. This brand is used as the standard for which all other aftermarket replacement batteries must match. Some replacements of the YTX20HL-PW may have higher CCA or AH while others may be slightly lower when comparing those specifications. All should match the dimentions closely and must match voltage and polarity exactly.
This motorcycle battery is 12V and has 310 CCA and 18 AH. It comes with a full 12 Mo. replacement warranty. Yuasa branded batteries are made either in Taiwan or the United States. Currently the YTX20HL-PW is made in USA.
