    Currently have this Shido LIPO battery. It has almost same CCA at 235 for half the price. It comes with spacers. Saves 5lbs as well.

    I guess that's a no then, nobody tried it, understandable it's double the price of the YTX14H, has same 240CCA but 16ah whereas the YTX14H has 12.6ah.

    Aye m8, that YTZ14S is the upgrade for the pre-sport model.

    The GYZ16H 16ah is an upgrade for the YTX14 & YTX14H as fitted to the TS, be nice to hear the TS whizz over like the T800 does with its YTX16, which is a 14ah.

    I asked the question, has anybody tried it, 'cos it's double the price, so I'd want to know it chucks the motor over a lot quicker, for the money. Otherwise, I'll go for the YTX14H.

    No rush, the OEM battery on my '14 TS is still showing 12.75v after 3 weeks of not being run or charged. Never had one last this long. Shows 10.5v under starting load.

    I have used Yuasa YTZ14S in 2 Sprint ST 1050's and my 2020 Tiger Sport 1050. Mainly because of the higher CCA.
    At the moment the even higher CCA Shido Lithium batteries are used in both my 2020 Tiger Sport 1050 and 2022 Tiger Sport 660 are less $ here. Paid 95 for the 14Ah TS1050 Shido and 85 for the 9Ah TS660

    Ayup Mustang,
    Stock for my model of TS is YTX14, upgrade is YTX14H, The GYZ16H is an upgrade on that. Looking for reviews on the latter from people who've fitted it, not alternatives.

    My YTX14H-BS wasn't bad, but as I never solved the parasitic draw issue, even after the burglar alarm failed and had to be removed, the bike always had to be on the tender when stored. Since I'm now away for months at a time, that battery died and I had to get a cheap replacement.

    I would say deffo worth spending on the GYZ battery, 16 Ah is not to be argued with (the same as the Tiger 800 I believe). And please let's not get into all the CCA stuff again, I'm already aware, more CCA is better of course.

    Given how slow my Tiger is to crank when hot, I'd probably even spend on the Shorai lithium battery, despite their known cold-weather shortcomings. But I would also fit a battery disconnector like the marine boys do, because I can't get to the bike for periods at a time. But that's my bike only FWIW.

    Hi Paullie, Thanks for your input, batteries can be fickle things & electrickery is the work of the devil. I'd just love to hear the TS spin over like the T8 does, so reassuring it aint gonna chew up the sprag.
