Well I need a Battery :(
Did someone say that the new Riva battery was not as large as ours or am I imagining that?
I want the best battery you can get, and do not want to have to make a spacer or something to rig it in.
So what are my options?
Anybody know the physical dimensions of our battery off hand?

I'm sure everyone will back me up in saying that the AGM (absorbed glass mat) battery is the best replacement for these skis. They are totally sealed so you don't have to worry about caps leaking (which the stock batts are prone to do) and acid spilling out. The AGM batts also hold up much longer than the stock ones. The best AGM brands out there are Odyssey and DEKA. I don't know the part number for the Odyssey, but the DEKA is EXT-30L. If you do an Internet search you can find them for about $75-80 a piece, but they'll last for 5+ years as long as you take care of them during the winter.

I did a search for out stock battery and it seems there are 100 different ways to show the same part number.
