this one i should get?



idk how many V on my battery now

Yes.
The most important is battery format Z10S. From your first post it looks like you have wrong battery format.
Voltage you should check using multimeter and if you do not have one then ask some electrician.

As I wrote correct battery format is Z10S for your bike. If you have different might be that charging capacity is not enough.

Please try to find your bike on fitment list from your link if you think that I’m wrong.

Check the voltage on moto and come back with values then somebody will try to help you.

The YT12B battery you have is the correct voltage and has plenty of capacity, but it is not the correct size. Not sure how you got it installed.

The YTZ is a factory activated battery shipped with acid already filled, the YTB is activated at point of sale by adding the acid.

The 10 and 12 refer to capacity. Theoretically the YT12B is stronger than the YTZ10...but it is larger and weighs more.

Also, the non-Yuasa (Parts Unlimited or Bikers Choice etc) generic brand batteries do not have a great reputation for quality. I wouldn't buy anything but a Yuasa in lead/acid batteries.

You should read 13 volts across the battery terminals if it is fully charged and healthy. The voltage should remain above 9 volts while cranking the engine.

The voltage at the battery should be from 14 to 15 volts when the engine is running (charging system working).

The sprag in the starter system is susceptible to failing with a weak battery. Once it slips during starting the engine will not start. Lot's of threads on this subject.

The YTZ10 battery is used in most Japanese sport bikes now. Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki,Kawasaki ... shop around at your local dealers. You may find one for a much better price than that $178 web link. Make sure it is fresh and reads 13.5 volts when you pick it up.

That is a generic brand YTZ10....so yes, it is the correct battery....but of suspect quality. May be good...may not last long at all.

I would pay the cost for the known standard of the battery industry, the Yuasa. And keep it on a "Smart" battery tender. I prefer the Noco Genius 1100...Optimates are good, too.
