The correct size is Y50-N18L. AGM style is best.

Description is a little short on details. Did it turn a bit and quit or turn a bit and start clicking at the solenoid. A weak battery will turn it over a bit and usually start making a few clicks in the solenoid as it is trying to connect but doesn’t have enough power. If it turns over a little and stops dead, no clicking, just press the button and nothing, it could be a hydrolocked cylinder. Pull the plugs, kill switch in the stop position( important), rags over plug holes, try and crank it. If a bunch of fuel comes out of one of the holes you have a leak somewhere in the carb system. Float valves, plenum, or carb-to-plenum seal. Always turn the petcock to off on these bikes.
