Hi Guys

Been having a few battery issues lately and have decided to replace it with a Yuasa. The problem is there are two models

YBX5057
YBX5053

Everywhere online states that I need the YBX5053, but the terminals on this battery seem the wrong way around. As you look at my battery the positive is on the drivers side.

So I have no idea which one is correct, do people just get the 5053 and install backwards ?

Sorry for the noob question just don’t want to
Order the wrong one!!

Thanks
Wayne

That’s what others have suggested only problem is the terminals are the wrong way round!? Do you just install the battery upside down?
