Default 90 cbr1000f battery...

it calls for a 14L-B2 and i was wondering if it is possible to swap it for a 14L-A2... or am i taking the chance of putting it in there and having something go very wrong very quick... thanks...

It shouldn't make a difference at all, I wouldn't think....

I've heard that the Deka is a good battery. I had a car one in my civic for a long time, and it was a great battery.

The A2 has the vent / exhaust / overflow on the oposite side to the B2.

Do away with dripping acid - get a Gel Cell Battery!

MotoBatt Batteries (Product code: MBTX14AU)

FYI: I had to twist the Battery Cable Ends to get them to align with the 'L' bracket mounts that are held by screws to the battery posts. I thought this was kinda of cheesy.

Yep, I've been running the motobatt for a while now, also...
A great glass mat battery for $65 shipped. (ebay/amazon)
Sprock is running one now, too.

Welcome, sribop!!

Drag Specialties also makes a version of the YTX14AHL-BS AGM battery. If you have a Parts Unlimited dealer near by then you can probably order one for around $64.
