Here is some info on the battery:
For Batteries themsleves the link for the factory battery is
The other one is:
2 batteries fit the Silverwing:
the YTZ12S which is the stock battery with 210 CCA and 11 amp hours
the YTZ14S which will also fit and has 230 CCA and 11.2 amp hours
The batteries are otherwise identical in every way.
Search the web for local or cheap sources of the model you want.
This company seems to have a few alternative batteries also.
Check their cross reference system to find the battery choices for the Silverwing. I think there are 4 choices.

: How did Dennis get all this info on the SWing but somehow omit the battery info? Could it be a conspiracy?
I am reposting this so see if I can get the info into a text file instead of a spreadsheet:
