You don't need a special batter but if you want the same physical size its a U1 battery (U1R is reversed terminals).Has anyone added a second battery yet for the accessories
what did you use for an isolater and battery tray
the yamaha kit is somewhat pricey at $580 but the convinience of having everything made to fit is somewhat appealing
I disagreeIt's better to have an upgraded charging system along with dual batteries. Unless you can keep them charging, dual batteries are kind of a waste of money and space.
From yamahas site.According to the yamaha site the kit mounts the battery under the hood
im thinking it must go on top of the existing battery
From yamahas site.
"Kit mounts underneath the driver seat, making for a simpler electrical access point for all electrical connections."

The last thing you need is to be stranded with a discharged battery. This 2nd Battery Kit enables the use of two batteries, saving the main battery for essential functions like starting. If both batteries need charging, the main battery is charged first. Kit mounts underneath the driver seat...shopyamaha.com
Yes sir it surely does.The Canadian site sais it mounts under the hood
HenceYes sir it surely does.
Says it is the RMAX2 kit. I believe the US description is correct for either countries kit. Same SKU number so it must be same.

let me know if you’d like a real beerThat's funny...but we all know here in America. Canada has never been very good at stuff. LOL.
They put the wrong description for the SKU. Same SKU as Canadian version so my guess is it goes under the seat.From Yamaha Canada... "No loss of cargo space as it mounts underneath the hood".
If there's room under the hood, no question, that's where I'd put it. Less wires, it's all in front for easy access.
Leaves more room under the seat for storage, a heater, and a sub.
