Does anyone know the part number/specification and size etc for a 2015 GT battery.
I'm looking to order one but don't have the bike here at the moment to check the details.
Thanks.

Here in the US, Batteries Plus has a sealed Duracell AGM maintainance free battery with 2 yr warantee for the CGT that fits just fine.

Do you have a part number on that Duracell battery? I'm in dire need of replacing my 2014 battery. Not enough juice to crank it over, but once the bike is running there's enough charge to keep the battery going.

What's the part number and what's the part and cost for that Duracell?

I recommend BatteryMart as a vendor and Motobatt as your OEM (https://www.batterymart.com/c-royal-enfield-continental-gt-535cc-2014.html).  However I went with Shorai.

Whatever battery you buy, fully charge (ie wait for maintenance mode charger status) before use.  For lithium batteries, either use a lithium-specific charger or disconnect charger immediately after maintenance mode reached.

Just a heads up about Motobatt,  if you order the battery using the OEM part number for cross reference,  it might not fit.  Maybe if you buy for the particular bike it does though.  I bought one for my pantah, which uses the same battery. It fits the pantah tray but won't go in the Enfield.  Just  saying.

Batteries Plus Duracell agm for GT listed on website as:  cyl10004 @ $109.95.   Less $10.00 coupon if you order online and p/u at store.  Plus tax and the usual Texas disposal charge.  ( plus core charge if you don't bring in old battery ).  Thought about Motobatt but couldn't find one specified for the GT.

So you get charged extra whether you bring your old battery in or you don't? That's weird. If I take my battery to the recycling place they give me money.
