Need help with fitting my Odessy PC625 in the RXP-X
Did I buy the wrong battery? This battery is way too small for the stock mounting brackets for the 2008 RXP-X. I'm thinking now maybe I should have got the PC925.. it looked about the same size of the original stock battery.
Anyways, the PC625 simply just does fit. It's 3cm (approx) too short for the stock bracket properly fit. The base of the battery is about 40% smaller than the original battery.
Anyone else have this problem?

Real easy fix. When I installed mine I pulled out the battery tray and the two 1inch long black stops. I cut them down and it allows the battery brackett to hold the smaller hieght Odey. Or clamp it in place. Just like stock.

isnt the pc625 only a 12v-19a? i was told it s only suitable for 155 seadoos, not the 215 & 255, and that i should get the pc925 for my rxp
any feedback on running the smaller pc625 in a rxp?
i dont mind fabing a special bracket for it if it saves me almost 10lbs vs stock yuasa
however can it support a couple of aem bilges?
how about pc925? is it a direct fit for stock bracket & tray? performs as advertised?
which model can fit both my 07 rxp and 09 fzs

There is no need to fab anything. All you do is cut down the black stops so the 2 nuts can clamp down the bracket on to the shorter battery. The battery stays put with the rubber base it sits on.

I'd also like to know if the PC925 is a direct fit in the stock bracket and tray.

water4fire is right on about the bracket, and I am 99% sure that the 925 is to big. The 625 worked for me all last summer, albeit an abreviated one. Besides, you already have the 625, and they warranty it for two years!

I saw that thread too, that s my concern with the #pc625 as i do a lot of offshore alone, and run a couple of aem bilges in my rxp
I asked Odissey directly and their answer was: #625 fits only the 155 seadoos, #925 fits 215 & 255
check the #925 on their specs chart:
26lbs (double the weight of #625)
now compare with stock yuasa #YB30CL-B:
L6.625" x W5.1875" x H7.5325"
not a direct fit! height should be no problem as we can cut bracket mounts or place a layer of thick rubber between battery & tray
but width is almost 2" more so we ll need to fab a special tray to sit it
anybody already done that? any feedback on #625 vs #925 in a rxp?
