Ebay lists over 150 of them. 12v 19ah will get you to a seller.

The jump starter won't have a problem with the extra ah capacity but there might be a problem with the physical size of the battery.

The jump starter's charge function may work a little harder though.

Overheated battery my 99 vfr 800 recently suffered from a overheated and cooking battery, and the whole electrical system faded out, and the bike impossible to start. Strong smell of sulphur. New battery...

Your voltage regulator is bad. She is over-charging. From your description, when this happens the charging system is putting to much voltage/amps back into the battery. The regulator senses battery voltage and then cuts back the amount of alternator output.

I stored my honda vfr 800 for two years. When I tried to start it, it would not start. It used to work alright before storage. It is quite new. What might be wrong with it?

Have you charges the battery? Is it turning over at normal rate. Have you put fresh fuel in it. 2 year old fuel will present a problem.
Mine would die and it turned out that the regulator / rectifier was shot also it buggered the alternator so need all new bits.
Common misconception is that it's just a faulty battery but can be more serious. Get a sparky to check it out.

My vfr 800 battery went flat after riding it 100 kilometers,the battery is only 2 months old.

You need to replace the voltage regulator. That's the first thing I would do.

Hope this helps.

When i push the start button it just clicks

More than likely, its a weak battery. Some batteries will not hold a full charge. Try substituting a Known Good Battery. Keep in mind, just because a battery might read 12 volts. it does not necessarily mean the battery has the ability to crank over the engine. Try putting the battery on a little Battery Tender charger for a day and try again, or, as I said earlier, jump with a goog battery. Good luck.
