Yes, it's just as tight. Batteries, car,truck,motorcycle, etc.) have standard BCI sizes for uniformity. A US made Exide YB6LM will be the same dimensions of an overseas made YB6LM. Once you strap in a gel or AGM battery and put your battery tender lead on and the side cover, your done with it. Some folks will wrap black vynil tape around the battery to hide the bright yellow case color. (yes, I do that when I use them) I have the Motobatt's in 6 of my 7 bikes so far. They are good stuff!
