You probably already know this, but in case you are new to battery replacement, keep in mind that amp-hour ratings between 6-Volt and 12-Volt are not equivalent. In order to get the same amount of energy out of your system, the 6-Volt batteries would need twice as high an amp-hour rating.
So two 100 amp-hour 12-Volt batteries are equivalent to two 200 amp-hour 6-Volt batteries.
Please excuse this reply if you already knew this; it's just that amp-hours is not a complete measure of battery capacity and sometimes causes confusion. Some people think that by going to 6-Volt batteries they gain a lot of capacity, which in itself isn't the case.
