    Best Battery

    I was wondering what is the best battery for high cranking amps and for holding a good charge.

    Most of us seem to have experienced issues with starting but I know a good battery and working starter relay seems to fix it most of the time. We know about the Yamaha starter relay but the battery is still a question I have.

    I was advised to get a yuasa ytz 14 s, not the usual yts 14 bs. It's a super heavy duty sealed gel high crank cold start one ideal for our bikes, only had it 2 weeks so can't really give any feedback lol. They retail for about 125 but I paid 85 locally, you can get them for a bit less on ebay.

    I was looking on the AP forum and there's a number of suggested ones on there...Griff does one 65 incl postage when I asked...assume if he's supplying it it must be a good 'un!

    Do you know if it's a gel or if it's a regular acid that I will have to add?

    Just read a huge battery test on a ST1300 forum (WTF?) and out of five top end batteries, the Motobatt came out as the hands down winner!

    Deffo on my ever growing shopping list, thank christ my wife loves bikes too.
