Hi folks,

Can anyone who has installed the Yuasa battery confirm that the part/model number is 12N12A-4A-1, if not please share the relevant number with us.

Also is the battery the maintenace free type or the conventional refillable type and if refillable, have you had any problems with leaking due to the battery lean angle on the Tornado/RS

I have heard good things from a MV riding buddy (4 batteries in 2 years!) about a brand called Yacht/ Himura batteries, they are a gel type with very long storage lifes 6 to 10 years, i think they are designed for long idle times, he has had one for 2 and a bit years and never a problem. cost him about $90.00 Ozzie dollars, Available in Australia from Batteries Plus, not sure of CCA and dimensions availability for the shape required for our tornados though. Ive also noticed that keeping the off button off when she in the shed is help a bit.
