    Hi,



    yes, this one will fit. I use the same type of battery.

    But you will need 2 small foam spacers, because this battery is a bit smaller as the original battery.



    The TW125 type 2 does have the same battery type. And Yamaha uses also here some foam spacers.

    Both Spudrider and I have personal experience with Scorpion batteries.

    Thanks guys.



    It wasn't so much the brand of battery I was asking about as much as it was model number and battery type. I notice on link #1 from jbfla's post that the Motocross battery has terminals that are threaded like the original battery on my 2008 where as the Scorpion battery does not.

    How do my bikes cables secure to the battery terminals on the Scorpion model?

    With a bolt and nut. Often the nut is a rectangular plate that has a threaded hole in the center.
