    MC17 battery part number

    Hey guys, I have landed in the states, woohoo, well, its been a few weeks now. but my bike is still in shipping, will be here the beginning of next month. my problem, is im a perfectionist lol, Im going to have to buy a new battery. I dont have access to my information and im hoping someone can tell me the original part number of the battery. im sure i wont be able to find it, but will look for a suitable replacement. remember, its an mc17, the battery box is different from a mc22, might be the same as a 19, not sure, so if youre not sure, no offence, dont guess. thanks again guys. looking forward to finally riding my 17 at the speeds she was built for.

    The wisdom of the Internet tells me that it is CTX9-BS... But if you'd disconnected it, it may still be good. I'm more interested in how you're getting the bike past customs! Grey imports are not exactly welcomed over there.

    Ciao,

    Part number from parts book is 31500-KS5-701. MC14 appears to have the same battery but MC19 doesn't.

    There are loop holes, as a us citizen im bringing it as my personal property as ive owned it overseas for more than a year. It also has to be completely unmodified. So im able to bring it home.

    Just buy a lithium bike battery.
    Don't need to trickle charge them.
    Weigh stuff all.

    Got it. Under the 25 year-old vehicle exemption, I presume? Newer vehicles are significantly more difficult to import into the USA. Anyone thinking of doing so should first read this. I have a bunch of non-US bikes that are between 20 and 25 years old, so I guess I'll have to stay abroad for another five years or so!

    Yea, newer vehicles can be almost, (and quite completely) impossible to import. With DOT and EPA guidelines, it can literally cost in the 20-30,000 dollar range. Somebody actually quoted me 17k to import my mc17. That was obviously on the high side of the standard with no exemptions. Luckily i had done my homework and politely asked them the strain of marijuana they were smoking and continued looking. Lol
