TVL - replacement battery size/model

Anyone know offhand the equivalent replacement battery (e.g. Odyssey)? Seems like a prophylactic measure to replace the OEM to help head off any sprag issues. I know these have been recommended previously:

Shorai LFX19A4-BS12 Battery & charger has worked well in both my F3's. 19Ah is quite a bit higher than the OEM 11 Ah rating.

Todd we try and keep issue's together in certain sections, it helps prevent double threads or duplicates on the same topics.
So when you start a thread on batteries, or anything else, it's always a good idea to put the model of the bike in the heading of the new post.
If you did a search in the maintenance section you would have noticed this has been discussed a LOT, on all models.

FWIW, I use Antigravity batteries too, and they work much better than the OEM Yuasa, compare the CCA of a 12 cell Antigravity to what is in your bike and you'd be sorted.

Donsy, understood. I didn't find much on batteries specific to the TV on my search (though did find one in retrospect - google-fu fail), hence my post. I figure it has a different alternator than the other bikes (since it ostensibly is a touring bike), so maybe the battery was a different spec from the F3/B3 as well.

From one of the other threads, looks like this was the YUASA equivalent:

http://www.yuasa.co.uk/batteries/mot...ee/ytz14s.html

I sent an email to Antigravity to see what they say - they're local to me.

Hi, Looks like I have to replace my TVL OEM battery at 1yr and 5000miles! Not sure if I should go for a lead acid type (Yuasa YTZ14S) or a Lithium. The antigravity site does not list the TV amongst the MV models it supports. Which model did they suggest for the TV when you got in touch with them?

Which battery did you finally go for? Are you happy with your choice. Cheers.

Hi,
I just got last year a Lithium battery and I'm very happy with it. Much lighter as the standard battery!! and a lot of power even in the cold time of year.

Only half the story there man...

What manufacturer? Do you have a model number? Is it physically the same size as the OEM battery?

What tender do you use with it. Have heard that Lithium batteries require a charger that a/ doesn't have a de-sulphate cycle, and b/ a specific maximum Ah rating.

My TVL has been on the MV supplied battery tender all winter, no serious sub zero temperatures so far this year (about -8C minimum) but the stories of the original battery giving up the ghost before it's really due make me lean towards the better cranking amperage of a decent one in an attempt to help preserve the starter clutch. Weak starting is, I reckon, going to hasten the demise of the sprag. The fact that the OEM battery brand is BS doesn't inspire the greatest of confidence, a company that obvioulsy doesn't do brand name research...

well, I've got the battery from Louis.de here in Germany.. and it fits correct in the space ... they was asking witch model of battery I've had before an gave my this one. So I'm not sure which model and Type it is... you can see the battery on one of this pics from the chain oiler.. :-)
I din't used the bike for 2 month now, because of the bad weather conditions. We had always - C but last Saturday I started the bike with no problems at all. It took a few moments but the bike started then with no problems. I never had a charger on it.

But your right If you want to charge the Lithium Battery you need a special charger for it!!

But how the battery works and acts is completely different to the normal battery.

Is it the LTM14B? That is the Lithium battery Louis recommend for the TV. Looking at the spec though this model is 4Ah while the TV OEM battery is 10Ah. I cannot find a CCA rating for this battery anywhere. Did you get any paperwork with the battery that gives the CCA rating?
