I am going to change seats on my T100 in the next day or so. I will look to see what battery the dealer installed and post back up here.
I had the same problem with my 2010 bonnie.
Then i read the hand book about using the choke at every start,Hasnt happend agian i did feel a bit silly not reading the manual first.Wont do that again.
Mr. Broad is quite right. The Triumph is a very nice bike; I'm quite fond of my '11 T100. Do I consider it completely reliable? As I consider my Harley or V-Strom reliable? No, of course not. I don't want to be far, far from a Triumph dealer - which in the US is most places - and have it fail to start. It is, perhaps, a little too retro.
Lovely to look at, nice to ride, probably wouldn't buy it again.
This is what your underseat layout should look like, this is on a Thruxton but I think the larger battery is now fitted to all Bonnies, note the battery model:
