Well yuasa uk recommended to me for my 19 1250RT the YTXH14 BS so I ordered one. I removed the oe battery which was an Exide for BMW and found it to be of a larger capacity and taller in size.
I’ve contacted where I purchased it from in the hope they can exchange it for the yuasa YTX20CH BS.

The mdsbattery.co.uk website suggests that the Yuasa YTX16-BS replaces the original BMW AGM battery, part # 61218531121.

The YTX20CH-BS is the same size but higher performance.

The Yuasa UK website recommends both the above batteries.

I was talking about yuasa the manufacturer direct. Emails from them suggest the ytx14 which is wrong and why I ended up with the wrong battery, mds have now sorted this out so tomorrow will hopefully be delivery day.

The yuasa YTX20CH bs just” fits, I’d attach a couple of pictures but I can’t seem to be able to do that.

YTX16-BS, https://www.yuasa.co.uk/ytx16-bs.html

YTX20CH-BS, https://www.yuasa.co.uk/ytx20ch-bs.html

Both batteries are Length 150mm x Width 87mm x Height 161mm, (see Tech Spec).

This looks like the Exide for BMW battery, https://www.james-sherlock.co.uk/shop/r ... ery-detail 151 x 87 x 161mm.
