    New Battery, Yuasa or ?

    Heard Yuasa went to shi+ lately,
    anyone recommend a good battery, or are they all Chinese trash now?

    Shoria Lithium Iron

    road has 1100 curves in 95 miles.

    You can use the LFX21A6-BS12. It's the same footprint but 315 CCA compared to the stock 180 CCA

    £242 for a bike battery! I'm just looking for the "spits out coffee on the keyboard" emoji"

    Didn't pay that much woody. 190? IIRC correctly. Plus it came with a load of stickers . I couldn't get the LFX21A6-BS12, not available here so purchased the LFX18A1-BS12, 270 CCA.

    If you do the Shoria route when you get the battery open the box. It'll quell the panic of you thinking they forgot to put it in the box

    Re: New Battery, Yuasa or ?

    question

    anyone fitted a battery were the + and - are reversed, obviously 2 options - put the battery in back to front or stretch the cables to opposite side- can it be done ?

    Looking at LI options from Skyrich and most have terminals the wrong way - very reasonable prices and just looking

    PS - It seems these come OEM on Ducati's

    Geoff that battery looks suspiciously the same as my old one, but rebadged, lasted 18 months. That's why i went the Shorai route.

    certainly similar on the actual body - I notice the ebay listings lack actual details about the battery specs

    I have read reviews about the Skyrich batteries and they get good reviews

    and what about my question on fitting with the terminals swapped

    Even back to front i doubt the cables would stretch. Certainly not long enough to cross over.
