I replaced my battery today, took some pictures and learned a few things. Hopefully this helps someone along the way.

Positive right, negative left. Notice the strap in the middle? To release, pull down slightly and it disengages from the lip. No need to go left or right. No need to take the strap off of the back clip either.

This is the battery once it's removed. I believe this is an OEM from a 2015, which means you may find out the lifespan of your bike battery is 7 years or so. Notice looking at it from the front, the negative and positive are in opposite sides from the first picture? Again, it's because in the bike it's laying on its back.

Empty battery space. See the strap, how it's attached to that clip? If it comes out, just push down until the lip catches again. This happened to me, and was the most challenging part of this.

I bought my 2017 CTX700D in May 2019 with only 650 miles on the odometer, and it came with the OEM battery. I had to replace it this year since it stopped holding its charge, so in my case, it lasted 6 years.

Just had to replace mine as well, it was the same model battery, and I believe it is the OEM. Mine's a 2015 non-DCT, and it didn't want to restart after a few minute rest. I replaced with the YTZ14S.

Oddly enough, I had just replaced the battery on my '06 VStar, aaaaaaand the '82 Nighthawk. Yeesh.
