Thanks for all the help everybody.

I think I have decided to go with the PC680.

Does it fit right into the stock battery box with no modification?

I do have a new 4 brush starter, newer regulator/rectifier and upgraded ground system installed too. Sounds like this battery would be a great addition.

From what i've read on the other forums the pc680 is plug & play.

It is a little larger but still fits OK.

The PC680 is the best battery for me by far. Make sure your charging system has all the upgrades. Your battery will thank you.

This is Wes, I have a question about the batteries mentioned. The pc680 and the panasonic. Will these batteries fit the battery box of my 06 max and do I have to do any upgrades to my charging system? The stock yuasa battery loses power if i do not start my bike after 2-3 weeks. Any help would be greatly appreciated, also where can I find these batteries. :)

I ended up ordering my PC680 from www.bohannonbattery.com down in Florida. They had the best price of $115.00 and it was shipped very fast and free of charge. It fits in my 1988 Vmax just perfect and I am sure it will fit just fine in any of the bikes from 1985-2007. I already have my bike upgraded to everything that the newer ones have like the 4 brush starter, reguator/rectifier and bigger ground wires. I am not sure what else is needed, but mine works great. It will be very nice to have a battery that I can count on now. Thanks everybody for your help.

yea, a single pc680 (but I have two) starts the 9 liter motor in my plane, but 60 of them can do the quarter-mile in 11.24 seconds.

Have you modified the battery rack for this odyssey?

Witch model of PC-680 you have installed? There are several with different dimensions..
