Which Odyssey model did you use? I want to get one as well but have no idea if I need a PC625 or a PC680? I have an 07 outlander 800XT. Did you have to modify anything to get it to fit?
I use the PC680. It will fit with minor modification to the battery tray. Still have no issues and am now running extra lights and grip and thumb warmers. seems to do well. I keep mine on a battery tender JR.

Its time for a battery for my 2007 Otty 800 max and BatteryTex carries a few PC680 batteries. Is model Odyessey PC680-p the correct battery to get?

Thanks for the fast response. The pc680 photo shows no posts on the battery. Do I need to order screw in posts too or can the posts be screwed off the old battery?

The terminals are flat with a threaded hole(6 mm, I think) pretty standard nowadays. I don't remember having to do anything special when I installed mine.

The only thing I would recommend doing that I did was to add some kind of spacers on each side of the battery. I added about a half inch of sticky backed foam I had laying around to each side to take up the slop there a bit. The battery is a tad taller than the stocker, pretty much the same length and a bit narrower. You can still run it without the side spacers though, I just wanted to keep it from having that slop room on the sides.

That\'s right, I kick it old school, 80\'s Metal Rocks!

I ordered the pc680 model on the 22nd and it arrived on the 24th. that was fast shipping considering the Christmas rush. The battery came with hardware so that was good. Now I need a nice day so I can install it

Thanks All.

They hold a charge longer and can go years without getting a charge and then come back up to like new.
Are they rated as a "DEEP CYCLE" battery ?

Keep the rubber side down !

"The Odyssey battery ingeniously uses absorbed glass mat (AGM) technology to offer, in one box, the characteristics of two separate batteries. It can deep cycle as well as provide enormous cranking power.
These batteries are capable of providing engine cranking pulses in excess of 2250A for 5 seconds as well as 400 charge/discharge cycles to 80% depth of discharge (DOD). A typical starting, lighting and ignition (SLI) battery can do one or the other, but not both.
Odyssey batteries will do both - provide short duration high amperage pulse or low rate long duration drains."
