hey guys trying to fight my ABS issue im going to bite the bullet and buy a new battery. i see my 93 abs-1 bike has a large tray and the current battery is smaller. 

is there anyone who can give me a part number on any brand of battery so i can cross reference it?

id rather not rip the battery out of my r100gs to try on there first. 

thanks in advance.

I'm not looking for a band-aid. I'm looking for a solution. My battery got drained and I don't trust it anymore. Thanks for the input

Yes, a "big" battery will fit a 93 LT.

Westco 12V30 is a good big battery.

The battery has one purpose and that is to start the engine.

A few other purposes: 

It keeps the clock in the cluster running when the bike is turned off. Very Happy

Will also run the hazards or parking lights.

Cold cranking amps(CCA) is an important spec.  It is important because the higher it is, the less the vōltage drop when you start the engine.

Physical size isn't that important as long as there is enough CCA to spin the engine when starting.  I have 255 CCA batteries in my bikes and have no problem with ABS or starting.
255 CCA will easily provide up to three horsepower to the starter motor.

My batteries are AGM and only 3" wide.  They save maybe 4 pounds of weight in the bargain.

What I sacrifice is how long I can leave the lights on without the engine running before the battery won't start the bike.  But who leaves the headlight on with the engine not running?
19 amp hours is more than enough to run my bikes.  That's enough to let me crank the engine like a fool for nearly two minutes when it won't start before the battery is dead.
