Battery issue??

I have noticed post about batteries in the past, but never paid much attention.

Due to other commitments, I knew I was not gonna be riding this much this winter, so I got a battery tender for the WRR( already had one for my SV1000 street bike).

long story short, after starting both bikes and having them warm up, and turning the bikes off, the Suzuki battery tender indicated a fully charged battery(green solid light) minutes later, while the WRR one was red, then green blinking, and not fully green 30 minutes later, when I was done with bikes and closing shed. ( red= below 80%, blinking green=80% charged, solid green= fully charged)

These Yamaha batteries suffer short life??? What are people replacing them with?

For the record, the battery has not failed me yet, but I am noticing more and more hard starts.
