    hello new guy here :P .i recently got a used sinnis apache but it needs a new battery i looked around and found this http://www.chinesemotorcyclepartsonl....php?i=QM125GY
    the battery is 12v 6ah, would that battery run the bike as it should or would it need to be a 12v 9ah battery? if so do you know what battery i will need that will fit into it
    also does the battery mount with the terminals on top or to the side?

    Stock's size is "weird" . According to http://www.chinariders.net/modules.p...wtopic&t=12104 some battery can tightly fit (measure the space by yourself 1st) . http://www.chinesemotorcyclepartsonl...tno_YTX9BS.php is the cheapest (according to Google) of that tightly fit's size found in UK . The photo shows a decent brand (http://www.zjguyue.com/Product_View.aspx?id=16) BUT don't guarantee current stock's brand .
    Genuine Yuasa http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/280978959188 's price is also quite reasonable.

    from what ive seen on wemoto and c.m.p they list batteries for that bike but they are too big one way or another
    i had another look on ebay and found this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MotoBatt-Q...item20c70ff3e5
    most of them where too big to so think i finally got lucky with finding that as its a bit smaller each way to the tray
    i think that one should be the best one i can get for it/

    on my sinnis the battery wires are coming out to the side where the fairing is is this where they should be or should they be behind the battery box
    because i cant seem to be able to move them behind it.
    i have found a battery that will fit but i am concerned about the wires because they come out to the side by the fairing so i am wondering if they will fit that way
    because the battery i found is 133mm high and the box is about 135-140mm high so mite be a squeeze unless i can get them behind wich i cant seem to do as the
    wire dnt seem to fit and because of the other box that is next to it.
