Hey guys,I need to replace my battery and I am a bit confused. While looking for the type that is currently in my bike, GT12B-4, I keep getting search results for YT12B-BS. What is the difference, if any, between the two battery types? I found a similar question on the web but there was no answer. Here are two batteries for reference:

I don"t no how old the battery is? But I don"t think that the GT12b-4 is a OEM. So if the battery was change to the GT and it is dead; I would not put one like it back in. Both of my bikes have the YT12b-bs and replaced one at 5yr. and one at 7yr. Here is a pdf for battery"s.http://www.gsbattery.com/PDFs/Battery Supplier Cross Reference Chart.pdf

Thanks. I went ahead and ordered the Yuasu TT12B-BS. I figure my current battery has crapped out on me. I checked the voltage with the battery still connected to the bike.1. Bike off: 12.5v2. Trying to start the bike: Dips to 1v to 6v, dreaded *click click click* sound and the bike won"t start.Is this typical of a dead cell? The battery seemed to give me no warning. The bike started fine one morning then I got to work and when I tried to go home the lights came on, horn worked, but *click click click* and I couldn"t start.

Sounds pretty typical of a dead cell. Funny how they will work fine and some batteries will slowly go down, while others will do it all of a sudden. Doesn"t matter what brand or type of battery. They all do it eventually. Some just last longer than others and some cost a lot more than others.
