Interesting. I don't think my battery is a cheap walmart jobber but I have a couple decent batteries floating around that I can toss in there and check it out.

Keep it rubber side down and enjoy the ride

do you have a multi/volt meter? if so charge up your battery make sure your connections are good then test your batter with the volt meter. let me know what your volts are with battery at rest (key off) battery with key on and what its load power is (if you have a multi meter with min/max use that setting if not just kinda keep an eye on the meter as you push the starter button. it should drop but if it goes down to like 6V or lower under load your battery is most likely shot.

Sad nowadays is that they don't make thing like the good old days anymore..The C's have screwed up the market.

Parts Unlimited (not sure if they are sold in US) make a equivalent if not better quality battery for about 2/3 the price of the Yuaso. It also have a higher CCA (cold cracking amps rating) of 210 vs 180 and is 12AH vs 10AH (amp per hour). I would not purchase a battery with a lower CCA and AH rating than the Yuasa model. AGM (absorbed glass mat) batteries are slightly more expensive than the basic lead acid type but are sealed and more resistant to vibration and tip overs. They may also last longer. I would definitely go with an AGM battery in a motorcycle.

Yuasa Model for the Versys
YTX12-BS - 180CCA - 10Ah

Parts Unlimited Model for the Versys 650
YTX14AHL-BS - 210CCA - 12Ah

Is it possible the Chrome battery you purchased does not have a high enough CCA rating to power the Versys starter?
