    When I had a T160 I measured the space available, being very careful to allow clearance for the side panel screw, and then trawled manufacturers data to find the biggest battery that would fit.  I can’t know remember what battery I fitted but if all else fails you could use this approach.  Maybe someone else will come along with more recent experience and give you a battery model number.

        I’ve purchased a motobatt MBTX 12U battery, it fits with lots of space left and has enough kick, used starter to fire up a few times  and it  seems to be fine, thanks
