In my 990 Adventure, I've got a Yuasa YTZ-14S. I've looked all over Yuasa's material ( CPModem), and I can't find any info on it. But Yuasa sure talks a lot about their YTX models.

Are there any differences between the YTZ-14S and the YTX-14S?

nope. unless there is something related to these cables here:

From BrailleB106


Since I am connecting a cable with a SAE connector directly to the battery for maintenance/charging I am removing the cables that are attached to the front door then to the +/- posts. Just another failure point that is not needed IMO.

I think he might be referring to the rumor that under certain circumstances, the carb heaters will turn on with the ignition being off. I don't know if this is true or not...

I see, I don't have these cables shown in the picture. Mine is 990 with EFI so no carb heaters neither.

direct from Braille: http://braillebattery.com/index.php/batteries/b106/

I am working on getting them, price will be better than what they list on their site. Not sure yet if there are any "no international" (ie Canadia) stipulations.

I guess this information about Braille B106 is not so important:

Cranking Amps @ 32 F: 283

Since the OEM Yuasa is giving max of 230 Amps, right?

Yuasa YTZ14S is giving 230 Amps at 0F while Braille B106 gives 210 Amps at 0F but 283 Amps at 32F. Cheers.

The Braille B106 is the correct fit for an '06 950 Adventure?

If you have the "S" you can't beat the 2 Odyssey option (one under the seat). Awesome cranking on start, HID headlight power up no problems, air compressor runs twice as fast as with the standard setup. Zero battery worries ever again

Any details of how you linked the two batteries, I was contemplating a dual set up of Brailles for the S so good to see whats worked for someone else.

Also anybody know if it would be possible/how to wire some sort of relay so both batteries were on to charge/when engines running but only one to discharge when engine is not running (so I cant toast my starting system in the gobi cos I left the heated grips on)

Pictures to prove it:








Thanks for this! I just ordered one- had to push start my bike a couple of times last week while on vacation. Good thing she's lite.
