I have a C15 and could measure that if you like: it is unlikely to be any larger than you need, even if it is not the same.

Assuming that you have the carrier in place, though, why not just measure that? I had no battery for my bike, so measured the dimensions of the carrier to find out the largest that I could fit and took the sizes to the local bike dealer. He simply looked through a catalogue and found the nearest fit.

Regards,

James.

Those measurements should work for me. The bike is being stored 7 hours away from me at my parents house. I have the carb with me and i am rebuilding it. I want to bring a battery and the carb back with me and get the bike running. I usually go to there house for the weekend and want to be prepared when i get there

Tyler, get the cheapest 6V battery you can for now, get Rupert Ratios book on Unit Singles which covers the engine in detail and he also covers how to convert to 12V which you can do later. Your alternator does not need changing to do this and the increase in brightness from your bulbs helps being seen.

Sorry for the delay.

I have fitted a 12v 5a Varta, with the serial numbers 12N5-3B and YB5L-B. It is sized 2 1/4" wide, 4 1/2" deep and 5" tall. There is room to fit one slightly wider as I had had to use a thin piece of polystyrene between the battery and the wire strap that holds it in place to stop the battery from wobbling about.

I would agree with the suggestion to convert to 12 volts, if you can. It takes little work, uses the same alternator, needing just a new coil, regulator/rectifier and bulbs. I have fitted the highest wattage halogen bulb that would fit (cannot recall the actual wattage), but it has made a huge improvement to the headlight.

Regards,

James.
