Tiger 800 Battery Replacement - YUASA YTX16-BS - Offer
« on: November 30, 2020, 02:58:22 PM »

After over 8 Years from new my Original 2012 Tiger 800  YUASA YTX16-BS  , is now struggling to start the engine first time - with the onset of these cold mornings.

Looking on here  Halfords are the cheapest place for the genuine replacement - 72

However if you are insured with Bennetts - you can download a 10% off Yuasa batteries voucher
 
Instore purchases only - but low & behold  one on the shelf in my local Halfords today.
But I'm sure if you order instore they will honour the voucher - just don't order online !

That will do nicely - and only 64.80  to you sir   :031:

There are some deals to be had

MBTX16U Motobatt Battery is only 53.80 from M&P, with free delivery

https://www.mandp.co.uk/products/mbtx16u-motobatt-battery-593051

Cheaper than Tayna, who are most peoples go to for Batteries..

I know that Motobatt  is not everyone's favourite, just using as example..

The Tiger  original Yuasa battery is a bit of a beast - weighs 5.6 kg - Although the Original Tiger 800's electrics were designed to run additional heated kit & devices etc.

So non standard may be a little lighter ? mottobatt ? or dry cell type

You get exactly what you pay for with a Yuasa - so here's to another 8 years of trouble free starting  :064:

Any positive views on the MotoBatt?
From what I've read (not on the T800 I might add), some love 'em, some avoid like the plague.

I know you can't go wrong with oem.

I've got Motobatts fitted to my 2006 T100 and also to my 1981 Honda CB900. I've not had any problems with them and have found that they hold a charge remarkably well while the bikes are laid up. Having said that there is no current draw from either bike neither have clocks, immobilisers or alarms.

I would still advise put a battery charger on asap and charge it right up as you can never trust the 'supplied ready to go' as you don't know how long it has been sat on the shelf. I've always charged all new batteries before fitting after I once had a new 5yr guaranteed Bosch battery fail to start my car after a few days use. Gave it a full charge and never had an issue again ... hence why I always give them a top up until charger shows 100% full.
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Yep charged before fitting - & activation sticker was on battery  , January 2020
Trickle charge over winter now - as no current drain from anything  , but battery's don't like the cold 

I used to work on Submarines - full of them  :005:
