I used a Shorai LFX27A3-BS12 rated at 405 CCA. Fits in stock location on my 2020 MC M-8000. It includes shims to snug up the fit. Only used a few. The + terminal is on the PTO side which matches the stock battery. About 3.5 lbs. So far so good however haven't been in negative temps yet.

I thought i should give a little info on what I ended up doing to tie this one up. I removed the small car battery first.
I did a little internet researching and settled on
an EarthX 14C. Install wasn’t too bad but there was a small amount of wire moving around and a lot of foam material needed to make it fit right.
I rode it yesterday in low to mid 20’s temps and it cranked right over all day just like the oem.

It started up OK at -19F on Feb 4, at Togwotee Lodge Wy.
