I think I had the 20 and it was ok, I've gone lithium now purely for the weight saving not cheap though :ill:

Hey Nutah,
I have two batteries sat in my garage,
One is brand new in it's box YB14L - A2, it measures 170 High, 85 wide, 130 long.
The other is the one I replaced off my 1125r with a Lithium, I've kept it charged as a spare & it holds a charge fine. It's a YTX14L - BS & measures 145 high, 85 wide, 150 wide.
Both are 200 amp cranking power, both are fully charged.
If either are any good for you I'm down at The Classic motorcycle hub on Saturday, not sure if that's anywhere near you but you're welcome to either of them free of charge (excuse the pun) if you can pick it up there.
All the best Paul.
Ride Safe & Stay between the hedgerows.

I've sold Yuasa batteries for 20 odd years as they were always the best, now I won't go near them !
Over the last couple of years I've been getting loads of returns under warranty.
