Brendan, It sounds like you have hooked the battery in with reverse polarity.
There are many people that have done this.

The battery is supposed to be installed with the negative terminal facing forward on the bike.
That means the battery is lying on its side.

What year F4 do you have...and where in this world are you?

These batteries need to be AGM batteries.

DO NOT install a TTz10S on its side.

The battery firm you consulted is wrong.

YTZ10S

Read the small print with the one you have, you might find the CCA is lower than the original, and that it is NOT designed to lie totally on it's side as the original is/was.
