I don't know about the Yuasa battery, but I have had problems with a couple of MF batteries that had to be filled, then sealed. When I get a MF battery, I want it ready to go. That is why I get WestCo batteries. I've had excellent luck with them. I did get one that was DOA, I called them, and 2 days later, had a new one on my doorstep, no questions asked. Can't beat that. Haven't had any problems with the replacement. I used to charge new motorcycle batteries with 1 amp for 24 hours before I installed them if possible, now that I have a Battery Tender Jr. for all of my bikes, I go ahead and install the battery, including the pigtail for the Battery Tender, then leave it connected for 24 hours. On a new battery, the light should turn green right away, and according to the instructions that came with the battery tenders, that means fully charged.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
