The Beezer is right (does Beezer mean BSA? If so, you are likely familiar with the less than reliable electrical systems on many of the old Brit bikes including the Birmingham Small Arms motorcycles).

The LiFePO batteries are attractive because of their low weight and ability to deliver high current. But, from what I have read, our electrical systems are not optimized for the charging requirements of these batteries. Until the automotive industry adopts the LiFePO battery as the engine starting battery of choice and optimizes the charging profile to accommodate these batteries, I'll stick with a high quality AGM like the Odyssey.
