Whats the least CCA I need in a battery for an 8v K100?

I can't find a spec for that anywhere, only the Ah.

The smallest battery I've run in a K is an ETX15L which has 220 CCA in a K100.

Starts the bike just fine but I would only recommend it for a bike that gets ridden regularly or is kept on a smart trickle charger.

It isn't a ton of current but the K clock is always draining the battery and if left unridden long enough will discharge the battery.

Thanks, I've ordered one with 260 CCA so should be plenty.
