I know the 06 and 07 battery is higher capacity, but will is it physically bigger as well? I need a new battery for my 03 and if the newer type will fit I will get that instead. Are there any differences?

Where did you hear that they are different. The Yuasa part number for the 01-07 Wing is YTX20HL-BS.

The 06 and 07 do have a higher output alternator. Maybe that is what you are thinking.

Looking at two different parts fiche, the '03' and '07' use the same battery. The one you get from HDL is a higher capacity than your original. You can get more info from Yuasa http://www.yuasabatteries.com/vehicle_search.asp

Although my original battery starts my bike fine, I'm going to replace it in the spring before I take any trips. I bought one from HDL during one of the sales.

Thanks guys. I thought I read that the battery was higher capacity when the 06 came out. My mistake. :oops:
