Can anyone tell me what the minimum cold cranking amps need to be on the battery of an LT?

I can't find a CCA spec in the shop manual, just a rated capacity of 19AH. The starter specs do not list current, only power (0.7kW, which works out to 58 amperes at 12V).

Yuan a lists a 51913 battery as the replacement, but no CCA spec is given.

Other manufacturers offer batteries claimed to be equivalent to the 51913, with CCA ratings from 220 to 300.

Hope this helps.

The SHORAI lithium-iron LFX21L6 battery recommended for our bikes is rated at 315 CCA at a lead battery equivalent of 21 Ah. The comparable MIRAI lithium-iron battery is listed at 325 CCA at a 21 Ah equivalent.
