Is this the right battery?
I’ve recently bought a 2006 Triumph Sprint ST 1050 & it wasn’t charging the battery. Took to garage for new regulator / rectifier & a new stator. The stator tested fine so wasn’t replaced but the RR was knackered so had that replaced with a better unit than the stock one.
All charging fine now at 14.2V but it’s been difficult to start on the button.
One thing the mechanic mentioned to me before I left was it would be a good idea to replace the battery when affordable as I’ve no idea how old the battery is?
Started shopping online & all the batteries that are showing for my bike are different to what’s in it? Eg. The identifying numbers & letters etc.
Please can someone take a look at the image of the battery that is in my bike currently & tell me if the last owner was a total whopper & fitted the wrong type of battery?
I’d be eternally grateful as this issue is driving me nuts & id like to be able to enjoy what’s left of the sunny days this Autumn (Fall) season.
Thanks in advance!
