New Battery

I need a fast answer to this question someone please... Im about to purchase a new battery for my 2000 K1200LT and need to know if I can put a 12V battery that has 250-600 CCA...? The dealer that sells Universal Batteries in my city advised me he has a 600 CCA battery that would fit. Can I use a battery that has over 200 CCA in my bike without damaging something? I hope someone reads this post tonight Im making a purchase of something tomorrow.... Thanks

Re: New Battery

Shouldn't be a problem. The bike will only draw what it needs to turn over. I would like to see that battery fit in the hole though. Most automotive batteries have 600 to 770 Cold Cranking Amps up here in the northland. I am just guessing he means cranking amps which is rated at 32 degrees F. CCA is rated at 0 degrees F.
