Purchased my Yuasa YTX-14BS as specified in the euro 4 service manual. Removed the tank and find its too tall to fit

Having a bugger of an afternoon, exchanged the battery at halfords but with the extra noco leads, the battery bolts not long enough as i have heated grips fitted as well. Managed to find s bolt. Got it all fixed but the tank is fouling on the cables so a bit of re-routing needed. This noco lead is quite short and I am struggling to position it so that it is accessible. Giving up for tonight and hitting the beer

Looks like i had a lucky save, i ordered a YTX and the shop supplied a YTZ just because that was available.

Seem to remember there are two different battery specs in different parts of the manual....

I still have my original YTZ battery sitting on the garage shelf. I charge it each month at the same time I charge other batteries for mowers etc. so it should still have some mileage in it, if I had known I could have run it down to you.

One obvious route for getting everything crammed into the battery carrier is to go lithium, the Shorai has to be packed out with 1" thick foam bottom, back and sides to stop it rattling.
