I am looking for a new battery for my motorcycle (Yamaha 600 TT RE)

To be precise, I am looking for a YT9B-4 battery.

I have been checking prices, and found out that the brand recommended by Yamaha Yuasa, is up to four times more expensive that knock-off brands.

Is there an actual difference, or am I just paying for the brand?

  • @SolarMike Sure, but there are cases where the products come out of the same plant, and just get a different brand name and twice the price. I would like to avoid falling for it – Maxime Mar 27 at 15:13
  • Don't forget to check warranty terms. Some batteries may be made in the same factory but some will carry a 1 year replacement warranty whilst others carry a 4 year warranty. – Steve Matthews Mar 27 at 15:22
  • @Maxime There are some that come out the back door for cash with no guarantee so you spend your money how you want - you don't have to accept my advice - I know which I purchased for my car... – Solar Mike Mar 27 at 15:24
