Shorai Lithium battery

I wanna get one. Nice n' lite
Yes, I installed one this past weekend on my HP2. Shorai LFX14A1-BS12... 14Ah model. It spins a little slow on first hit. I recommend turning the bike on, and waiting 60 seconds or so to let the battery wake up. It hits strong on the second crank. I've only had if for a week, so we will see how it goes.

I added 25mm of padding to the front side of the battery box, and 15mm of padding to the bottom. Then dropped the battery in, and secured with the clamp. Nice and tight. The shipping box comes with about 15 pieces of medium density foam with sticky backing. Great for making the smaller battery fit in a larger space. Very thoughtful of the Shorai folks.
