Default 2002 Classic Cruiser battery = YTX20HL-BS?

EDIT: that is the one and only, the "H" is 310cca, the YTX20L is the samd but with 270cca(cold cranking amps)

Are there any higher cca options out there? My battery only seems to crank hard for one start (on a new battery). I would like something higher. What batteries do you guys prefer?

I went with an interstate battery for my bike, they were cheapest of the 3 or 4 places I called. Can't remember how many cca it is. It's held up pretty well, but I also keep it on the battery tender when I'm not on it

So have you checked to see if your bike is charging at a good rate. A good battery should crank for some time. Maybe you have dirty throttle bodys or bad compression.

I think all Vic's come with that battery and works extremely well.
Hope your shoveling is getting better

I haven't put a multi meter on it but my digital gauge says I'm charging fine. My TB is definitely dirty and I actually just pulled it off of the bike to clean and replace the rubber under it. I'm not sure how a dirty TB could cause this though. It's not that it takes a while to turn over. It's that if I start the bike multiple times in a row, the cranking power is dramatically lower each time.
