Need a new battery options for your Honda CX500, GL500, CX650 or GL650? Here's a few options. Need to check if the CX650C has the same battery terminal orientation as the rest... anyone?

You want 190cca minimum, 210cca+ preferred. The amp-hour rating could be viewed as how much juice the battery holds in total and isn't necessarily related to how much strength the battery has when it comes to starting. If it's 10 amp-hours, for a crude example, that means that it could sustain a 10-amp drain for 1 hour or a 1 amp drain for 10 hours.

Here are some of the battery options for the Honda CX500, GL500, CX650 and GL650 motorcycles.

Lithium battery options for Honda CX500, GL500, CX650, GL650

See this page for information about which regulator/rectifier you should be using with a lithium battery. These are much lighter than the older, lead-acid batteries!

Note that generally the lithium ones are much smaller and lighter than their lead acid counterparts, which means they won't fit in the stock location without some padding added. Lithium batteries also don't tend to like near-zero-celsius temperatures very much, which is going to be something to keep in mind if you live in a cold part of the world! Last we checked Shorai recommend leaving your ignition on with a headlight running for 5 minutes to warm the battery up before trying your first crank if you're starting below zero celsius.
