What are some good options for an aftermarket AGM battery for a 2018 Roxor that fit with no modifications?

Not sure about the dimensions, but optima are good (but expensive)

Got a Duracell from Sam's Club. Group 34, 800 CCA, positive terminal on the left like the original. It was $108. They had the same battery that was AGM. $70 more. I'm sure like everything else it's gone up. But it fit perfectly.

Be careful running agm, most have a low maximum charging voltage and most vehicle alternators produce high enough voltage to damage most agm batteries on the market. I haven't dug up the ratings on the roxor alternator yet, but I would bet its not compatible with agm batteries.

I haven't looked at the operation of the charging system on the roxor, but it is possible the ones that come with an agm battery have a voltage limited charging system. If I was considering an agm, I would verify the ratings were compatible for peace of mind. I'm also a cheap ass and would be disappointed if I cooked a $200+ battery from not taking the time to research what I was working on.

Our chances of cooking the gauge cluster by doing nothing are probably higher than cooking an agm battery. Just saying.

I bought a x2 AGM battery. It has a 5 year warranty with free replacement so not too worried if it gets cooked:)
How did you get it to fit in the mount? I got the X2Power 24 AGM and the base would fit fine but the batter had flares on the top side which hit the side brackets of the mount.

Yes - I fun installing it since I ran into the same problem. I had to bend the side brackets a little and was able to strap it down from there. If I would have known that before I bought the X2 Power battery, I would have went with a different option.
