OEM Battery for 2015 Ninja 1000 ABS?

Hi,
I recently purchased my friends 2015 Ninja 1000 ABS that he purchased new.
Since it was weak to startup, I pulled the battery to charge it.
The battery I pulled out is a yellow MotoBatt.
Was this the OEM battery when purchased new?
I thought (and according to the manual) that it should be Yuasa.
My friend says he's never changed out the battery.

Yausa would be the factory battery for the nk1, my 2012 yausa is still going strong.

No telling what the dealer did.
YT12A-BS is what's called for although if mine would ever go bad the bike will loose 5 lbs so I can gain 10. LOL

Yeah, strange that the manual would call out the Yuasa but it came with MotoBatt.

I've never had a problem with the Shorai I put in the bike - except I have gained ten pounds!
