Bought a new battery for my SV650S 2003, the page stated YTX12-BS but I received a UTX12-BS.
The store say it's the same, I got what was ordered :/

As far as I understand it's the same size and both are 12V10Ah but it's 140 CCA and my old one was 180 CCA.

Will the new battery work or should I look for another battery somewhere else?

Can depend somewhat on what climate you live in. CCA is defined by the amount of amps a fully charged 12V battery can produce for 30 seconds at 0F (-18C) temperature and maintain at least 7.2V. If you live in a warm climate, it will probably never be a deal. And since it's unlikely you're going to be riding in 0F temps where ever you live, still probably not a deal. 180CCA would be better, but 140CCA will work.
