OEM Battery

I'm pretty sure the oem battery for my 2011 is meant to be a Yuasa, right? I mean I know it is; but I was a bit surprised today when I pulled my battery for replacement to find:


Is that some alternate brand or did the dealer maybe swap it out as it was a 2011 holdover purchased new in 2012? Didn't have any problems with it really. It lasted almost 4 years of 365 day a year outdoor parking in NY winters. Tended or not (and it was every month or two) I don't think it owes me anything at this point having endured those temps round the clock.

Was your 2011 Versys not made in Thailand? So is your battery... My Japan made 2007 still runs on its original Chinese Yuasa.

Indeed it was, Invader. I took note of the fact that the battery was Thai made, just seemed odd that it would be different from the Yuasa. Fair enough- Like I said- It did its job well.
