Over the years I've kept the twin battery set up on my 1100 SPT but this w/e both have failed so it's time to review the situation.

What's the perceived wisdom? Has any of us fitted a single 14+/-ah battery and if so what type given the space available?

I see Motobatt list a 14ah battery for the injection which interests me.

Well, that one hit the deck with a thud..

Decided to fit a single 20AH Gel/AGM battery on its side. There's one for a Harley that will fit rather than replace the twin 9AH's

Would a kind gentleman/woman with an 1100 Sporti ('96 on) be so kind as to post a pic of the battery setup for me to make a comparison, please?

Thanks...

Simon.
