    What Battery ?

    This kinda follows on from my previous thread,

    My batteries given up so need to get a new one, anyone got any recommendations. Ive seen a few of the Westco batteries on the web, anybody know if there any good ? It needs to be a YTX14-BS 12v 14ah


    Cheers,

    I would stick to a quality battery - either Yuasa or GS, something that holds plenty of grunt. Some of the cheaper batteries run flat in no time ....

    I have a Yuasa YTX14-BS 12v 14ah on my 04. I had to do a lot of chopping and changing to get it in.

    I went for the westco battery as the Yuasa one only lasted 13 months

    It starts the bike alot better than the Yuasa ever did

    100% recomended......................

    Nice one mate,

    i was just about to place an order for one , never heard of them before, so i was a bit unsure. I do believe they ar fitted to Harley's , i guess if they can start a bike that still use's bits from tractors, they will start a Mille !!!

    which westco (part/model no) did you fit, and was that on a post 04 bike. did you need to modify anything. i have read on here that the yuasa needs moding.
