              I replaced my original with one like yours but they both do a bad job of passing current ( voltage sag probably because of cheap conductors,I think their steel)

                My link shows a matching 100A CB. https://lunacycle.com/sur-ron-replac...rcuit-breaker/

                Is the 125A one better than the 100A one?

                  ...Is.......125A......better than.........100A..?

                  P= E x I.
                  P-watts = E-volts x I-amps
                  ..........6000-watts =.. 60-volts x 100-amps
                  ..........7500-watts =.. 60-volts x 125-amps

                I understand Ohms Law but putting a bigger breaker in does not jump the current up. A bigger breaker just means that a higher current rating is needed to blow it. So you're letting more current thru than the manufacturer specified. Which can be unsafe. If you want more actual amps, then you'll need a different battery.

                I guess I should have phrased it differently. Why do you think the 125A is better than the 100A?

                  I run 200amps thru my 125amp breaker and have never had it trip,I think they mostly work to prevent spark when connecting your battery up( while breaker is off).There steel connectors make for pretty good voltage drop at higher settings.

                  Most breakers are designed to run at rated current indefinitely. Many will run at 2X rated current for an extended period of time like 30 min, and for shorter periods of time as the current goes up. You need to know the actual specs for the breaker to know for sure.
