Exide Supercrank Select 12-bs

There is a friend of mine selling a Exide Supercrank Select 12-bs MF battery. I was wondering if this would fit my Vulcan 750. If so is it a good battery. Right now have a M battery that is not really keeping a charge that good. Have to jump the bike when it is cold outside.

Not enough information. I'm assuming the 12BS is part of the part number, but there has to be more. The physical dimensions have to be right, and the + and - terminals have to be in the right position. If they are, it will probably work, weaker batteries are usually smaller. I used my Vulcan battery to start my 1200 Goldwing when I first got it. But I would be wary of buying a used battery. Exide is a well known company that makes batteries under several different brand names.

Only Exide battery I could find with 12BS in the part number is the UTX12-BS

Brand(OEM) Exide
Model 12-BS
Manufacturer Power Max
Weight 9.5
Volts 12
Amp-Hour 10
CCA 180
Length 5.9375
Width 3.4375
Height 5.125
Warranty 1 Year
Chemistry SLA

It will not fit. Size is wrong, it is only 10 AH (Vulcan 750 needs at least 14 AH), CCA is 180, Vulcan needs minimum 190 CCA. It also has the + and - terminals reversed.
