    Battery on gtx 4tec???

    In prepping my 2003 seadoo gtx 4 tec supercharged for this season, i discovered that my battery needs replacing. the original battery was 30 ah and i stupidly bought a 19ah battery at the store. I already opened in, prepped it and am charging it now....will this be a problem? its my understanding that the amps is only the capacity and i essentially bought a smaller battery, but the voltage is the same....any other considerations I am missing? other than the size difference as well....

    While the 19ah battery will "work" it leaves little reserve capacity in the event of an "issue"

    Get the correct battery and chalk this one up to inexperience. Keep the 19ah on trickle and put it on your local craigslist, you'll lose 10-25 bucks on it when you sell it off.

    far better then creating a problem.
