Small bike battery update from YTX5 to YTX7S

"2018 Forest Fairies"
Since the Beta 2012 decided to let me kick it all day on my last ride, I decided it was time to get a new battery.
I first tested the battery at home to see if it was the problems.
1- Put the Voltmeter on the battery
- Reading at 12.79 V
2- Keep the Voltmeter connected to the battery and try to start the bike
- Reading go down to 7 V
- Bike won't start and starter stop turning
3- Send an email to Edmund's Battery in Surrey
- Received a reply on Monday morning, they have the YTX5 in stock
4- Received another email from the store manager
- Suggesting to update to the BETTER version to replace the YTX5 with YTX7S
- Double the Cranking Power
- Higher Amps per Hours
5- Picked up the Battery already ready to go
6- Put the battery in the Beta, fit perfectly, same size as the old one
7- Touched the Happy button
8- Enjoyed to have the bike fire up right away.

Will see after a few cold start, but for now on, I'm really happy.

Bonus point
My DSBC membership is almost paid only with that purchase, Members get a pretty good discount at Edmund's :)
