Yip, that is the correct one.  Early models had the YTX12-BS but would recommend that you stick to the 14-BS

Also, the aftermarket batteries are about 3cm or so higher than the BMW original battery. You'll need to take out the polystyrene piece below the BMW battery in order to fit in the new battery.

That polystyrene piece was fitted to the bikes with the 12Ah batteries.

So when you say early models had the 12Ah battery, how early are you talking about? My 2015 GS/A had the polystyrene.

'13,'14 and '15 I think.  Had a 2016 in the other day with full height battery in.
