Hi all,

Long time no see, has anyone shoe-horned a YTX14H-BS into their battery tray at all My YTX14AH-BS gave up the ghost today. None available round my neck of the woods, plus, I noticed the new one has 210cca, instead of 220cca which mine had when new. It only has 88cca when the guy in the battery place checked it

MBTX12U fits, just search on that auction site for a Motobatt Falco battery, they are a universal fitment, you can mount the terminals on the front or back of the battery, all four corners are threaded for terminals,comes with a spacer plate to fit underneath the unit to make it the right height .
Yes, you may find others with a bit more CCA but I can testify you will get a good few years from one of these,they work, simples

I've had two Motobatts - one lasted over 5 years and even started my KTM on the electric hoof after 18 months under a tarp in the garden. The other - later one - lasted less than a year on the GSXR ..
