    damn keyboard

    ...anyways, getting on with the story, she stated she would buy us a battery for the '07 1200RT. However, checking the website, there's not one listed. Will the PC680 work, and if so any mods necessary?

    Thanks, Don

    Yep, just put one in my '09.

    YOU WILL NEED TO SHIM IT A BIT TO GET IT TO FIT TIGHTLY.

    I used reinforced plastic hosing and cut some pieces the width of the battery and placed them under the hold bar on the top and this tightened it right up. I think rubber fuel line hosing is what many have used!

    Yep - fuel line trick worked for me.

    I just worked through a lot of issues related to charging voltage versus pc680 requirements on my R1150RT.

    Since the '07 R1200RT was shipped with a GEL battery, similar to mine, which requires a lower charging voltage than the AGM PC680, I'm curious as to the typical charging voltage on this model year? (Mine ran in the 13.6-14.0 range which is far too low for the PC680.)
