Me thinks the ETZ14C  would be a waste of money. At over 13V and 330 CCA, it would be a miss match for the load.

If I had to replace my battery now, I'd get this pig, an EXACT match.

Harry, I agree. The ETZ14C  would be a waste of money.
I just posted it as a way to cut weight, and really big CCA. {If anyone wants to go that way}

But, I think you missed something.
Start with; see my reply #20 / line #3.
It sez;  #3 Other battery manufacturers make a 16 series battery {similar to the Yuasa GYZ16H} but all are too tall to fit in our bikes. 

The 16 series battery you posted is 5/8" taller than the stock battery. 
   {ie; NOT an exact match}

I did the same thing when I was looking for 16 series at a lower cost.
The only 16 series that I found that fit's our bike is the Yuasa.
The battery you posted would be a REALLY tight fit, has lower CCA than the Yuasa GYZ16H,  and it costs more.

Your doing ok though. I still suspect there is something available that beats the Yuasa. Just haven't found it yet.
Enjoying the hunt......  :great:

Ride safe, Ted

I said...If I had to buy one now. I have amazing hobby skills. It would be no problem for me to make an adapter to fit that puppy in there.

I WILL MAKE IT FIT ;D :D



No matter what MOB or Ted thinks.  >:D

Humor aside. The battery will fit. The power from that battery is the exact match, tho it will not fit my OEM battery box adapter, which is nothing more than an adapter to make it fit snug.

IF I had to, right now, I could make the replacement battery fit (I measured the availble space without the adapter) just by adding the right amount of high density foam. I'd set the OEM adapter aside in case I was to find a battery that would fit it.

There is nothing magical about the OEM battery box adapter.
A custom adapter would easily work with any replacement battery that will fit inside the available space.  :)

Was looking at Yuasa batteries and came across a 16ah series.
I seem to recall that someone discovered them previously and used one?

They are the same dimensionally, unsure of weight, but higher Ah and CCA.
Battery post locations are correct.
Are shown to fit our bikes.

Are they a equal or better replacement battery?
If yes, why wouldn't Kawasaki have used them originally?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Yuasa-GYZ-High-Performance-Maintenance-Free-AGM-Battery-GYZ16H-YUAM716GH/283349407890?fits=Year%3A2014%7CModel%3AConcours+14%7CSubmodel%3AZG1400C+ABS%7CMake%3AKawasaki&epid=209955446&hash=item41f8f0d892:g:R1UAAOSwEONcR55e:sc:ShippingMethodExpress!77067!US!-1

Ride safe, Ted

NOTE: I posted this listing as it included dimensions. It is priced at $102.
           Other listings had them priced for as little as $89.
         

Ted, if the specs of this battery are correct, then the answer is YES, it will fit. It may not fit the OEM battery adapter, but with adequate padding, it will fit in the battery space provided. Sorry for not answering this sooner.  :-[

Yes the batter box and outside cover changed about 2011..

I hadn't thought of removing the top of the battery box and installing foam.
Would prolly work, but seems better to just buy the Yuasa GYZ16H..

Stock fit, more CCA, more Ah, and less $$...

yeah, kinda.... :)) :))

other than my wiring looks nicer, the fact is mine is an '08.... and has the "shroud" over the battery that I noted would work with that battery Ted originally asked about... unlike the later years '10 up...

oh, and mine is faster, note that "Blue High Beta Energy capsule" that my bike (and all '08-'09 had).... it will achieve warp speed quicker, and do "Lunar Wheelies"....

When it's time, I think I'll just buy the Yuasa GYZ16H, cut a couple of clearance holes in my stock battery box and be done.
Should fit perfectly and less work..

But, I'm still wondering if someone can find a more powerful battery than stock for less $$.
Right now, I think the Yuasa is the best option, but like the Motobatt..

(I hate to admit Harry did anything good), but that sound's like a good I-deer.
But, I'm not buying one yet as the OEM battery is till crankin' fine. {???}

I started this discussion because I'm concerned because my batteries age {2013 to now}, but so far, so good... {famous last words}.

Nighthawk "has" installed 1 though. Nighthawk are you still out there?
  Do ya feel like doin' an article for the next Concourier?? {hint/hint}  :great:

Nothing wrong with shopping for parts BEFORE they wear out.
Most folks wait till failure, then it's panic mode.

I'm always shopping for my next computer just to stay on top of the never ending changes.
If my computer dies, I'd have to buy one like...right NOW. Can't waste time trying to decide what to look for.
Battery technology changes to, tho not as fast.

Hey Ted,
Not sure of the fitment to a C-14 on these. They fit a C-10 and are what I use.  They have stainless attachment points (at least I think it's stainless, it sure isn't lead) and while they simply call them SLA batteries, they are AGM.  They are available in a host of brands and manufacturers under all types of usage.  Also available on Amazon under various brand names.  But I run them in jet skis as well as bikes and they can take a beating and come up running for me offshore.  Keep a maintainer on them when not in use and they do about the same life as a Yuasa AGM.  I actually started messing with these when you gave me that old battery from a jumpbox way back when.  Oh, this price includes shipping.

DISCLAIMER:
I don't recommend nuttin'.  YMMV   Don't try anything other than what the factory installed in your bike.  And I've even looked twice at a bike with a car tire on it.  If you do anything I suggest you will die a fiery horrible death.  There, that about covers it.

I got an advertisement this morning. Not sure about the Lithium, but this seemed like a good price ($116) if someone was looking to try one. I thought they cost about $200++?
I think it will fit...
NOTE: I know nothing about the Lithium, but MOB/others seem concerned with Lithium..
https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/fire-power-featherweight-lithium-battery-hjtx14h-fp-il
Found another brand/WPS/same size on Ebay for $99.

Last: Found a Lithium with 330 CCA for $152 that should fit. {it's 1/4" only taller than the one I posed below}

Re: 16ah series battery. Will it fit a C-14

I realize I've been very critical of Li Batt's, and not without reason; I think if you are spending $$$ on a batt, you really should know all the 'foibles' about them, but in reality, all the manufacturers give what they want you to believe, especially when the say "how safe" they are, and "no harmful contents", which is an outright lie on the part of the advertisers.. again, just making this clear.

the only website I have found, by a supplier, that actually was "honest" (mind you, you still need to read it all, and between the lines, especially about CA and CCA) is this one...
unfortunately it appears to be about the tech they are selling, which comes under LiFePo..(top tier... not cheap) not just LI batts.. each compound differs, and has totally different values.. LiFePo, being "top tier" and any thing below that composition, is trying to ride on "coat tails" of that, most Li or LiPo, cannot achieve the longevity, or specs, of the "high end spectrum"....

I may try a cheapo Li next go round, but I live in Ohio, and we get well below "cold"..

http://www.motobatt.us/information-lifepo4-lithium

90% of the failures and issues, are related to the "protective charging circuit tech" within the sealed package, if it fails.. you have a bomb.
I blew up a lot of batteries trying to make an effective "vent", on cell phone sized batteries I was designing.. and those even at that small size, "blow'ed up real good..wooo hooo.'

Update on the question; "16ah series battery, Will it fit a C-14"...…

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Yuasa-High-Performance-Factory-Activated-Battery-GYZ16H-YUAM716GH/352445771786?epid=209955446&hash=item520f67b00a:g:MAYAAOSwZSpdEl4q

I installed a Yuasa GYZ16H Battery in my bike yesterday.
Size wise, it fit perfectly.
I did have to cut 2 notches in the battery cover to fit the more powerful battery.
   But EZ to do.  :great:
           Heck,,, I think even MOB could probably (err) maybe do the install..  :nananana:

Ride safe, Ted
