Difference Between Yuasa TTZ and YTZ

Many people are asking so what is the difference between Yuasa TTZ and YTZ Motorcycle battery range? The fact is Yuasa introduced in 2009 the TTZ range which was launched as the budget option to the very expensive YTZ range, this range includes the TTZ7s, TTZ10s, TTZ12s and the TTZ14s which are designed as a direct alternative to the YTZ range.

The TTZ range have the same "CCA" (Cranking Amps) and the same "Ah" (Amps per hour) and are considerably cheaper to buy than the YTZ range, so you ask why are they cheaper?

There are 3 Main Differences to Consider

  1. Mounting Angle of the TTZ is slighly less than YTZ - SEE DIAGRAM BELOW
  2. TTZ & YTZ are internally constructed differently with different internal plate layouts
  3. YTZ are factory activated, TTZ are fresh pack which means you have to add the acid to the battery and then seal which makes them fully sealed
