Need a new battety


I just a bought a 2005 Kodiak 195 hybrid TT. I didn't receive and if the manuals from the previous owner so I have no reference for the battery specs. Anybody have any ideas on what type and size battery I need. Please keep this simple because I am non very good with electronics. Do I need a deep cycle or will a standard car battery work?

Thanks in advance

You need a deep cycle. Depending upon the where you battery goes it will be a group 24 or 27. Measure the size of the old battery or battery box area. Both batteries will be the same in height & width. Group 24 will be about 10 1/2" long group 27 will be 12 1/2". If you have the room go with the larger 27.
