I have replaced the original Yuasa YTZ-10s with an Yuasa TTZ-10s. It costed 87 euros (I think that the original one costs about 130 euros). No problems after 10 months and 8000km . Follows a description found somewhere in the internet.

A high quality budget replacement for the Yuasa YTZ10S High Performance MF battery.

The new Yuasa TTZ range of batteries have been recently introduced as an alternative to the ultra-high performance Yuasa YTZ batteries which are fitted as original equipment to many of today's top-of-the-range motorcycles.

The TTZ batteries are made using the same proven technology as Yuasa's regular YT/YTX series of maintenance-free batteries and they provide a cost-effective alternative balancing performance and longevity for users where the reliability of the Yuasa brand is still a priority.


The Yuasa TTZ10S-BS can also be used to replace the Varta 508-901-015 YTZ10S-BS battery.

I wouldn't change the battery just for the sake of it. Mines is now 4 1/2 years old and still going strong. (Much touching of wood now).

I did just that on my original battery, gave me a bit of peace of mind as I was about to dissappear to the IOM for the TT but as the original is still going strong and now about 3 1/2 years further on, I recon I probably wasted my money.  What price peace of mind  :187: .
 
Both batteries are maintained with either an Optimate or CTEK XS800 which I am sure has helped.
