Almost every motor vehicle uses 12vdc Lead-Acid Batteries, The deciding factor for you will be the size of the battery. Best bet for you would be to take the old battery, or, write down all the letters and numbers on your battery. An example would be something like this; Yakamoto FW27483. And the measurements of the Length, Width & Height. You should be able to go in to any Auto Parts store and find a battery. Also, I am assuming that your battery is a small one. Hardware Stores sell "Sealed Lead Acid" batteries for use in "EXIT" signs and "Emergency Lights" that are used in most stores.
[I am using one of this type of battery in my riding mower, 3 years and it still works just fine.]

I kinda doubt you'd be able to find a car battery small enough!

Why not just use the right battery?

Ybr 125 is struggling to start


Hi, Ian before testing any electrical component in the Starter Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, especially "AGM" batteries.
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or have an improper gap or are partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition.
3. Loose wire/cable connection at one of the battery terminals, especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, check it at both ends, coil, or plug between ECM or ignition module.
4. Throttle controls not adjusted correctly.
5. Water or dirt in the fuel system.
6. Water or dirt in the carburetor.
7. Intake air leak.
8. Fuel tank vent hose and vapor valve plugged, or fuel line closed off, restricting fuel flow.
9. Enrichener valve inoperative.
10. Engine lubricant to heavy (winter operation).
11. Ignition is not functioning properly (possible sensor failure).
12. Faulty ignition coil.
13. Valves sticking.
